Claim Submission

To help avoid Late Penalties and Claim Denials please be sure you are submitting your claims in a timely manner.

Dental Claims are processed based on Date of Treatment.

Orthodontic Claims are processed based on Date of Payment.

Claims received 60 days after the date of treatment are subject to a 20% penalty. If there is primary insurance involved you have 90 days from the date of treatment to get your claims in and not receive a late penalty. (Orthodontic claims will not receive late penalties, but they must be submitted within the appropriate plan year.)

We have several claims that are submitted around or on the Absolute Deadline. We would like to see less penalties given and more money reimbursed to you during the 2016-2017 plan year.

 Please contact us to explain special circumstances.

 

 

 

Plan Information

Orthodontic Benefit Change

Effective 9/1/2016, the Orthodontic Lifetime Maximum Benefit will be SEPARATED from the Annual Maximum Benefit. The Lifetime cap on orthodontia per individual is still $2,000.

For orthodontic claims you can receive a full $2,000 reimbursement in one plan year or over multiple plan years, based on your payment schedule with your orthodontist. Be sure to submit your orthodontic claims within the appropriate plan year.

Your annual orthodontic claim reimbursements are calculated based on payments made September 1 - August 31, and are reimbursed according to the following benefit reimbursement scale:

   Claim Amount                         Percentage Paid                               Amount Reimbursed
up to   $2,000                                     100%                                          up to $2,000
