California Dental Association Endorses DentalXChange for Fourth Consecutive Year

ORANGE COUNTY, CA--(Marketwired - August 12, 2013) -   DentalXChange (DXC), an Irvine, Calif. based technology company that specializes in providing online solutions to connect dentists, patients, and insurance companies, is proud to announce that the California Dental Association (CDA) has selected DentalXChange as an Endorsed Program for a fourth consecutive year.

"We are proud to be entering our fourth year of CDA endorsement. The continued confidence in DentalXChange by the CDA reflects the ongoing quality of the services we offer, as well as our extensive participation in the dental industry," said Scott Wellwood, president of DXC.

This endorsement enables CDA's nearly 25,000 members to receive an immediate savings on DentalXChange's innovative, easy-to-use electronic transaction services, including electronic claims, real-time eligibility, claim status and electronic remittance advice (ERA).

"As a CDA Endorsed Program for the past three years, DentalXChange has a strong track record of sharing its superior products and services, while remaining dedicated to providing savings to our members. In addition, DentalXChange maintains the capacity and ability to deliver exceptional customer service," said Evet Dickinson, manager, CDA Endorsed Programs. "We are excited to once again have DentalXChange on our roster of CDA Endorsed Programs, all of whom deliver quality services and exclusive benefits to our members."

With this renewed endorsement, CDA members will continue to benefit from savings on a variety of DentalXChange's products, including ClaimConnect, an online application that provides immediate access to an online claims tracking tool that is capable of managing all claims transactions with custom reporting options.

ClaimConnect was designed to remove the barriers associated with conducting electronic transactions between dental offices and insurance companies, and is compatible with most dental software programs for online claim submission. In addition to batch upload claim services, providers who do not want to invest in electronic dental interchange (EDI) modules or dental software programs can conduct on-line transactions using an intuitive browser-based interface.

The service offers providers the tools to improve the flow of registration, enrollment and billing processes, verify patient eligibility and process claims in near real-time. Electronic Remittance Advice (ERA), which is an electronic version of an Explanation of Benefits, can be viewed and printed, or imported into certain dental software programs. This provides a complement to Electronic Funds Transfer programs offered by many insurance companies.

"DentalXChange has been supporting California dental providers for more than two decades, and we're proud to be able to continue to provide them with a discount on our valuable business services. We look forward to continuing to help CDA members to improve office efficiencies while reducing paper usage, saving money and improving cash flow year in and year out," noted Wellwood.
