The Very Dental Podcast Network

Jason sits down with returning guest Teresa Duncan (self described "insurance geek!") to discuss the dental landscape once we return to "normal." Some of the topics they discuss:

  • The news from Delta (no $ PPE, some $ for PPE)
  • Who should you use to negotiate with insurances? What should you expect from negotiations?
  • Dropping plans: make decisions from data, not emotions! Use COVID as the biggest excuse ever!
  • Where is the ADA on all of this?
  • Insurance's pretty important right now, especially eligibility
  • Membership plans
  • Delta prepayment for cash flow (what's the catch)
  • What does it look like to drop Delta Premier?
  • Using COVID as an excuse
  • What about a second wave of COVID?
  • Why is Jason so damned handsome?
