Filing Dental Claims – Dental Benefit

Friday, Oct. 21st 2022 6:04 AM

Question: How do I get my dentist to file the claims. I got a dental PPO insurance plan because the dentist I want to go only takes PPO dental insurance plans.  I have to deal with the waiting periods and yearly max limits in order to continue seeing my dentist.  I was fine with that but now I am being told that they are going to make me pay for my dental services in full!!  That it is up to me to file the claim to my insurance company.  They would fill out the form but that is all they will do.  

This is something they did not inform me of when I went to the trouble of getting dental insurance that will aloud me to go to them.   I am really upset off.  How do I get them to file the claim so that I only have to pay for what my plan does not?  Since my dentist changed his staffing and drop the one HMO plan that I had I am left feeling like he does not care for my business, and I am the one left jumping all of their hoops. 

Answer: There is not much you can do about it.  The dentist/dental office can choose how they wish to file out claims.  Many more dental office are filing claims in this manor and finding a dentist office that will just billing you for any unpaid balances after you have already received their services may become harder for you.  You may want to go back to an HMO dental insurance plan and choose a new provider.
