The Books

The journey of implementing medical billing into dental practices is guided by the series: Successful Medical Billing for Dentists. Dr. Farrugia's signature strategy for handling medical claims is shared in the book: Successful Medical Billing for Dentists: FUNDAMENTALS. The compliment to his immensely popular course, this book is the ultimate guidebook for dentists who want to begin to successfully access medical benefits for their services. Refining "beyond the basics" coding strategies and systems are central to the second book in the series: Successful Medical Billing for Dentists: ADVANCED. The series continues with ICD-10 for Dentists: CODES. This book condenses tens of thousands of ICD-10 diagnosis  and CPT procedure codes to those commonly used by dental practices. And the latest addition to the series: Successful Dental Sleep Medicine. This book uniquely combines the medical billing and clinical practice of dental sleep medicine.

Successful Dental Sleep Medicine

Clinical and financial success in treating sleep apnea patients requires complementary and concurrent clinical AND billing systems. Too often, dentists focus on the clinical aspect of treating OSA only to get to the end and a medical claim for services is denied. In this unique book, learn how to establish and combine BOTH elements in a successful dental sleep practice as you identify all of the billable events along the clinical process.

Dr. Chris Farrugia spent years decoding the process of medical billing for his dental practice. By carefully analyzing the patterns of diagnosis and procedure codes common to paid claims, Dr. Farrugia developed a signature strategy for handling claims, and has a solid track record of success.

ICD-10 and CPT For Dentists: CODES

ICD-10-CM has over 69,000 codes! There are a hundred zillion CPT codes!  Most of which have nothing to do with your practice. Dr. Farrugia makes ICD-10 understandable by providing instruction on ICD-10, highlighting the common ICD-10 and CPT codes you will use daily, and providing descriptions, informational, and instructional notes, and a cross-coding of CPT/CDT. Instead of wading through two separate (and expensive!) tomes of ICD-10 and CPT codes, this condensed, updated reference guide has every thing you need to understand and use ICD-10 and CPT and to code for both medical and dental claims with confidence.


 


Because ICD-10 will be required on the ADA Dental claim form, as a bonus, Dr. Farrugia has included complete instructions of the current protocols for completing both claims: the CMS1500(2/12) AND the ADA (2012) claim forms.
