Many dentists will bill the Plan for you for the services you
receive. This is referred to as "assignment of
benefits." Most dentists will want to see and/or
photocopy your insurance card. (If you need a card,
please call the Administrative Office.) From the insurance card
they will obtain the participant's name and employee ID number, and the address for claims to be submitted.
The dentist will usually ask for you to pay the deductible
and any non-covered expenses at the time of service. The
dentist will send the bill to the Administrative Office for payment.
When the Administrative Office pays the provider, you will receive an
Explanation of Benefits (EOB) in the mail. Please review
the EOB to ensure that the services you received were properly
billed and paid for.
Reimbursed for Dental Bills You Have Paid (Unassigned
If your dentist does not bill insurance, be sure
to get a complete itemized statement that includes:
Date of service
and Tax ID number
employee ID number
and Date of Birth
payment has been received or a receipt
The Plan can not
reimburse you from any receipt that does not include this
information. You may submit the bill to the
Office for reimbursement via fax, mail, or in person. A
reimbursement check will be mailed directly to you when the
claim is processed.
Annual Medical/Dental Claim Form for the Patient
For prompt processing of your claim, make sure that the
patient has an updated
Annual Medical/Dental Claim Form filed with the
Office. This form must be updated at least once every
twelve months or whenever the information changes, such as a
change in your spouse's insurance.
