Sacramento, Calif. — The California Dental Association is pleased to announce eAssist Dental Solutions as a CDA Endorsed Program that offers dentists a valuable billing service, enhancing timely claims payment from dental plans.
CDA has been helping members navigate the dental benefits side of their practices for over a decade utilizing a dedicated, knowledgeable team and a full library of resources to educate members on how to properly complete and submit dental claims as well as address dental plan claim denials. Due to the complex nature and high volume of dental plan claim submissions, CDA sought an Endorsed Program partner as an option for members who need assistance submitting and managing their claims, including investigation and appeal of questionable denied claims.
eAssist provides an end-to-end electronic billing service for dental offices. The service optimizes claims payment and appeals processes. eAssist eases the burden on office staff and helps dental practices be more efficient, profitable and patient-centric. Founded by a dentist in 2012 to address the stress and anxiety caused by team turnover and retraining on dental benefit billing and processes, eAssist currently has a team of over 600 dental billing experts serving more than 4,000 dentists around the country, collecting $2.2 billion dollars from dental plans.
“CDA recognizes the ongoing challenges our members continue to face when dealing with dental benefit plans, and the association remains committed to offering dentists support and solutions such as eAssist,” said Steven Kend, DDS, chair of the CDA Finance Committee, which oversees CDA Endorsed Programs. “CDA selected eAssist for its offerings and its service-oriented mission to the profession of dentistry, which align with CDA’s mission and core values.
During these challenging times, having a dental plan billing solution for dental practices is paramount to ensuring the continuing financial health of the dental practice. Employing eAssist as a potential solution can help address some of the staffing shortages dental offices are experiencing.”
“eAssist is proud to partner with CDA in offering this valuable member benefit to provide dentists with an alternative method of maintaining their practices with fewer headaches,” said James Anderson, DMD, CEO of eAssist. “eAssist looks forward to serving CDA member dentists by ensuring they get paid what is rightfully owed to them from dental plans utilizing our unparalleled team of dental billing experts and our time-tested proven process.”
