Since 1983, Southeast Dental Associates (SEDA), a network of over 50 dental practices in six counties of Southeast Wisconsin, has been linking dental professionals with patients and reimbursement sources such as insurance companies and health maintenance organizations (HMOs). By providing administrative support, SEDA has freed up its member offices to concentrate on what they do best - providing quality services.
As an individual practice association (IPA), SEDA oversees the gamut of dental service provision. From surveying facilities where services are performed, to credentialing performing providers, to establishing qualifying offices as part of its network, to ensuring quality services for patients, to processing dental claims, to reimbursing care providers, SEDA is involved in every aspect of the patient-provider-reimbursement source relationship.
Presently, SEDA processes dental claim information for four medical care reimbursement companies.
