Item Numbers, Health Funds and Records

March 14, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

Most dentists will use ADA item numbers every working day of their lives, but if you use them incorrectly, you may find yourself in hot water. Under the guidance of Martin and Larissa, learn how to avoid becoming the subject of a health fund or Medicare audit and how to comply with the DBA’s requirements for clinical records.

Martin has a vast experience in this area, having worked on the ADA Inc Schedule and having conducted dental practice audits for AHPRA. In this course Martin will draw on case studies, presenting participants with a particularly tricky clinical case they may experience in general dental practice! Participants are encouraged to bring their own item number questions for Martin to answer in an open forum discussion.

Topics that will be covered are:

Australian Schedule of Dental Services and Glossary
CDBS item numbers
The health fund’s view
What triggers a health fund audit and how to respond to it?
Case studies of health fund investigations where clinical records have been major factors
Commonly investigated item numbers
The most misused item numbers and why
What happens if a health fund considers a claim is fraudulent?
AHPRA’s view about fraudulent claims
DBA record keeping requirements
An update on the 13th edition of The Australian Schedule of Dental Services and Glossary due for release this year
An update on the provision of provider numbers for OHTs, dental hygienists and dental therapists coming into effect from 1 July 2022
