Fast, Efficient, and Easy.

Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) is an exchange of all types of data between a provider’s practice and Dental Select. By submitting your claims electronically, your practice will see a considerably shortened turnaround time for claim payments and a remarkable reduction in postage and labor costs.

EDI will speed up your revenue cycle and increase your office’s efficiency. How? It’s simple. EDI is a standardized system that transmits claims and claims information electronically. It eliminates the need for paper-based dental claims because it processes everything, including attachments, instantly and electronically. And because it uses a secure, cloud-based solution, your office can send and receive electronic documents in minutes instead of days. As for your reimbursements, they can take as little as 7-15 days. Combine this with the low costs associated with EDI, and your practice will save even more when switching to electronic claims processing.

Benefits of Sending Claims By EDI:

  • Increase claims efficiency
  • Decrease costs associated with claims processing
  • Faster reimbursements
  • Fewer claims denials
  • Easier to track claims
  • No more manual tracking or mailing

Popular Data Exchanges & Transaction Numbers
