Understanding PPO Network Leasing: What you need to know

Tuesday, September 28th, 2021
Noon - 1:00 PM CT
1 CE Credit

Register for the Sept. 28 webinar

Have you ever had a patient present with an insurance ID card for a plan that you thought you were out-of-network with only to find out later when the explanation of benefits was received that you were actually a network provider for the plan? How can this happen? Can you opt out of participating with a leased plan or network? What fees can be charged when you participate in a leased network? These concerns around network leasing can be a significant source of stress and confusion for many dental practices.

In this webinar you will get the answers to these questions and more. You will gain a basic understanding of how PPO network leasing works and you will hear from a large dental PPO leasing organization who will explain PPO leasing and how it may affect a dental practice. You will also hear from an ADA representative who will respond and present ADA viewpoints based on best practices and policy adopted by the ADA’s House of Delegates.
