Work Smarter, Not Harder: Boost Your Dental Practice's Profit With PPO Management

Is your dental practice struggling with PPO problems?

Shelley DeGroff is the Founder and CEO of PPO Advisors, a Preferred Provider Organizations (PPO) management company that helps dental practices turn their PPOs into profit.

Shelley cultivated strong relationships with insurance companies and their representatives, allowing her to provide listeners with a comprehensive understanding of the big picture, identify opportunities for dental practices, and evaluate the impact of negotiating and structuring PPO contracts.

Shelley points out that while PPOs can be a valuable source of patients for dental practices, they can also create significant financial challenges. In her view, the problem with PPOs is that they often require dental practices to accept lower reimbursement rates than they would receive from patients paying out-of-pocket or covered by fee-for-service plans.

Additionally, PPOs can be challenging to navigate, with complex contracts and credentialing requirements that can take significant effort to manage. To address these challenges, dental practices can work with companies such as PPO Advisors.

PPO Advisors help dental practices negotiate and structure PPO contracts to increase their profitability and navigate the credentialing process more efficiently. By leveraging the expertise of these companies, dental practices can turn PPOs into a source of profit rather than a financial drain.
