I have Delta Dental PPO insurance plan though work. I just used it for the first time yesterday. I got my regular check up and cleaning. Lucky for me that was all I needed to have done. Because after having my dental cleaning I was told I needed to pay the bill in full which was $175.00.
I did not really understand this because I told them my insurance plan with Delta Dental states they pay 100% for the services I just had. I told them I agree that I have $50.00 deductible which I thought they were going to bill me for after my insurance company paid the claim.
I was told it was up to me to file a claim in order to get back my money from Delta Dental. I though that was part of the dental office job. Little to say I am upset but glad that I had the $175.00 to pay for the work I had done. How do I file a claim to Delta Dental. I never had to do that before but would like to get it to them ASAP so I can get my money back. Thanks for the help.
I have this tooth that I know I needs to have a root canal. A little over four months ago the dentist I was seeing told me I should have a root canal done on one of my teeth. Since I was moving I put it off. Now the dental insurance I have does not cover for me to see a specialist. I was told that I would need to know the ADA code for an idea of cost. If the root canal can be done by a general dentist I will have some coverage. How do I find out what is the right ADA code so I can check into my policy coverages and how would I know if I have to see a specialist or not?
Two days ago I went in for my regular dental cleaning, check up visit. My dentist told me all and all I was in good shape but that I needed to have a deep cleaning. I told him I would look into it and see if I can afford to have it done after speaking with my insurance company.
So I called my dental insurance company that stated that without a the ADA codes they could not tell me my cost for the service. I told them it is just a deep cleaning but they said it was not enough information for them to tell me cost. I though a deep cleaning is just a deep cleaning what is a ADA code and were would I get that from?
