Ed Comitz’s Continuing Education course “Disability Insurance Roulette: Why is it So Hard to Collect on My Policy” is now available through Dentaltown. This CE is an electronically delivered, self-instructional program and is designated for 2 hours of CE credit. In this course, Ed discusses why it is so difficult for dentists to collect disability benefits and how to avoid the most common mistakes made by dentists when filing disability claims. Ed also covers the key provisions to look for in disability insurance policies and provides an overview of the disability claims process. Finally, the course discusses how disability insurance claims are investigated and administered, and identifies common strategies used by insurance companies to deny claims.
Information on how to register can be found here.

As we have previously blogged, each month the White House Disability Group—members of the White House Domestic Party Council and the Office of Public Engagement who work on disability issues—hosts a public, live-captioned conference call to keep the public better informed regarding disability issues and to connect the disability community to the leaders who work on disability policies in the federal government. In the past several months, topics such as accessibility, employment, education, technology, emergency preparedness, transportation, and healthcare and the budget have been discussed. The Secretaries of Education and Transportation and other senior Administration official have participated in the monthly disability calls.
The White House Disability Group is now offering the opportunity for you to suggest the topics you’d like to hear discussed and suggest the speakers with whom you’d like to interact during the calls.
