A: While some zipcode areas may have a limited number of providers, this is very rare. There are usually providers within a 50-mile radius of a zip code. If your provider is not listed, you can can request them by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. The program administrator will contact the provider with information on how to apply to participate in the program. Because of the application and credentialing process, it may take 6-12 weeks before a provider is added to the network. Not all providers will agree to accept the discounted fees required by the program.
A: Members just need to go to a participating provider, show their membership card, pay the discounted fees at the time of service and ask for a copy of the bill. Then, file the claim with the insurance company to be reimbursed by them. This reduces the members’ out-of-pocket expenses and stretches their dollar so they reach their maximums more slowly. Members may also use the discount programs for services not covered by their insurance plan. For example, many people have medical insurance, but do not have dental and vision coverage. Please remember that the discount programs are not insurance and may offer discounts on many services not included in traditional indemnity plans.
A: Yes, one of the wonderful features of this discount program is that a member’s entire household can receive the savings, even children living at college! Please remember to contact Sele-Dent and to confirm they enrolled members on your plan.
