Renaissance is an E-Claims clearinghouse solution that uses Remote Lite software. It is offered by Renaissance Electronic Systems and Services. You can visit their website, but their explanation does not apply very well to Open Dental since we have a direct connection with them instead of using print capture. Website: www.rss-llc.com. To begin using Renaissance, call them at 1-866-712-9584 to set up an account.
If using Renaissance Version 5 or greater the Claim Export Path should be changed to C:\Users\Public\RES\DOTR\upload.
Then, download and install the Remote Lite software from their website: https://www.dentalhero.com/.
To actually send claims, see Managing Insurance Claims. When you click send claim to Renaissance from that window, the Remote Lite program will come up with a list of claims that have been created. Then, just click the Send Claims Button at the bottom of the Remote Lite window. On the other hand, if you see a claim that you don't actually want to send, you can highlight it and click the red X delete button. Then you would go back to the Open Dental send claims window and change the status of that claim back to Waiting so that it won't be marked as sent.
You MUST verify that all the claims were accepted by the insurance companies. This is the major advantage of using e-claims. The report does not just show that Renaissance accepted your claim, but it shows that the insurance company accepted your claim. So you know within 24 hours whether your claim was accepted or not, rather than waiting 1 or 2 months. Then, you MUST follow up on any claims that were not accepted by fixing and resending them.
