DE's Business Lab: I can bill medical insurance for that?

Feb. 24, 2022
Did you know that any dental office can bill for medical insurance? There's no need to be affiliated with a hospital. Expert Kandra Sellers, RDH, shares her knowledge about medical billing.

There just might be a way after all for our practices to be reimbursed for more than what dental insurance is willing to pay these days: medical insurance. I spoke with medical billing expert Kandra Sellers, RDH, who has learned all the ins and outs of medical billing during her 30 years in dentistry.

She told me that medical billing is different from and much higher than dental insurance. We can be reimbursed for such procedures as panoramic x-rays, CT scans, all types of exams, TMJ services, appliance services, and surgical services, to name a few.

There is a learning curve because medical billing is much different than dental, with a different coding system. Through her business,, Kandra will visit your office and immediately begin training the staff in medical billing. She can even help them carry out retro billing because medical billing is good for up to one year?

Sound like a good fit for your practice? Contact Kandra through her website at or call or text her at  (612) 418-7870 to get started with medical billing today!
