How to drop a PPO

Post by jthuisman » Thu Sep 29, 2022 6:42 am

I am going to drop a PPO contract January 1.

It appears that I can't globally change all plans associated with the carrier from "PPO" to "category percentage" and that I need to edit each plan individually to make this change. That's a big job, but doable.

However, as far as I can see, there is no setting at the level of the insurance company, or even the insurance plan, to uncheck the "assignment of benefits" to the practice. Do I really have to go into each individual family file insurance screen to toggle off this setting?

Are there any other changes I'm forgetting that need to be made in OpenDental to implement this change?

Very good questions? With insurances lagging on increases to reimbursement rates I can foresee other providers starting to drop the worst performing PPO plans.
