Change Heathcare Cyber Security Issue Affects Dental Claims

Change Healthcare experienced a cyber security issue last week, creating a lot of uncertainty for dental practitioners as to how to get insurance claims paid. Independent practices generally depend a great deal on insurance payments, therefore this has been an issue of concern for DDA and our clients. Depending on what dental software you use, there are different solutions being offered.
