 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 should be submitted within 60 days from the date of treatment. If claims are recieved after 60 days from the date of treatment they 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.

Orthodontic Benefit

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



How you get Reimbursed

A reimbursement check is mailed to the member after their claim is processed.

You should receive a check to the address we have on file in two weeks or less. Claims are processed 2-3 times a week so that the turn around is quick.

The check is the upper 1/3 of the sheet mailed to you; the Explanation of Benefits (EOB) is the lower 2/3 of the sheet. EOB states what an individual has remaining for Annual and Orthodontic Benefits.

Your EOB should be retained for tax purposes and/or Flex Spending Accounts.


Online Claim Submission- If you use the online claim submission you will be able to view and print a copy of your check/EOB the day that your claim is processed. Check/EOB is still sent to members home address on file.



If you do not receive a check within two weeks of submitting your claim please contact us. We work hard to process your claims in a timely manner so please help us by cashing your checks as soon as possible.
