Mobile-Portable Hybrid Apple Tree Dental
g. What are some financing, risk management/legal/insurance issues?

The greatest source of funding for Apple Tree Dental is the revenue from dental services that are provided; 86% of all Apple Tree patients are public program recipients, which are typically reimbursed at 30-40% of fees. This alone does not cover all costs, so fundraising is also needed. It is important to take into consideration the reimbursement schedules from the greatest payer source.

Apple Tree Dental covers automobile and liability insurance for the equipment and vehicles. The providers are covered under the same malpractice insurance policies that are in effect in the fixed clinics. Apple Tree Dental has a written contract with each facility served that outlines the expectations of Apple Tree and the facility for providing on-site services.
