Insurance Billing Bootcamp with Laura Couture 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.

Laura Couture is currently the Account Executive at Brady Billing, a third-party medical biller specializing in oral appliance billing for dentists nationwide. She started her career by being “baptized” into sleep by some of the industry’s leading doctors, vendors, and speakers. Before venturing into the billing arena exclusively, she was a clinical assistant in one of the nation’s leading Dental Sleep Practices. Starting as a clinician and moving to billing has always seemed to give her an edge up with an extensive knowledge of both billing and clinical guidelines. She is a Sleep Group Solutions Educator, as well as an ASBA Certified Sleep Care Coordinator. She is an active participant in insurance medical policy guidelines and staying up to date on how to best get doctor’s paid. Laura is a self-proclaimed true crime and coffee junkie and always looking for the next book to add to her library.
