Episode 85: Mastering The Art of Dental Insurance, Negotiation, And Carrier Relationship Management With Harold Gornbein
As technology continues to transform the dental industry, the world of insurance and credentialing has become increasingly complex. As a result, dentists are spending more and more of their valuable time trying to figure things out.
And if we’re being honest, most dentists don’t exactly get excited about dealing with insurance and properly codifying their services.
Which is why I’m so excited about today’s SYDP guest Harold Gornbein, Harold is a partner of Apex Reimbursement Specialists, which helps put money back in dentists pockets and saves tons of the time in the process.
With over 20 + years of dealing with insurance, Harold knows exactly what it takes to give dentists the winning edge. I think you’ll enjoy his refreshingly honest take on the world of insurance and negotiation.
