The WSDA Board of Directors has created a new task force to review dental benefit opportunities for members. Several member dentists have reported increases in claim denial, down coding and delays in claim processing. The task force meets for the first time this evening, covering a broad range of topics from dental insurance alternatives to fee negotiation.
The task force is made up of seven WSDA dentists from all regions of the state: Dr. Katie Hakes (Spokane), Dr. Brady McDonald (Olympia), Dr. Scott Williams (Yakima), Dr. Chris Pickel (Seattle), Dr. Kim Nordberg (Puyallup), Dr. Spence Jilek (Tri-Cities), and Dr. Mark Germack (Issaquah).
