Q: Is there a way I can reach out to patients who have remaining insurance benefits to use before the end of the year?

A: Yes, there are a couple of ways to generate a list in Dentrix to accomplish this goal.

If you want to generate a list of patients who have a treatment plan and unused insurance benefits, I would recommend using the Treatment Manager Report. You can filter this report to get a very narrow or very broad list of patients.

The other way you can generate a list of patients who have unused benefits is to use the Letters & Custom Lists feature. You can use Patient Report by Filters and customize a list of patients to call or email.

Both of these lists can be exported into an Excel file or comma-separated values (CSV) file to use in other platforms.
