Insurance Billing Bootcamp with Megan Cheever from Brady Billing
Attendees must pre register on registration form
(No additional charge if attending weekend retreat)

Dental sleep medicine requires well-developed skill and advanced training for optimal results – but what about the financial aspects? Because Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is a medical condition, practices are unable to file claims through dental insurance. Thankfully, medical billing can be a smooth and stress-free process with the right know-how.

Megan Cheever has been working in the medical field for half of her life so far – although she doesn’t really like that reminder. Having spent many years billing for a neurology practice, she learned the nuances of insurance extremely well and has a true talent for navigating this minefield without getting blown to smithereens. Today, she is the Director of Operations for Brady Billing and has limited her focus to dental sleep billing for the last five years. She has spoken on this topic at numerous conferences already, where her Q&A sessions often last longer than the lecture itself. Come prepared to download a terabyte of knowledge, because Megan will definitely BRING it!
