Prescription drug claims that are purchased at the point-of-sale using the Plan Member’s pay-direct drug card are submitted directly to the insurance company and the Plan Member is not required to pay out-of-pocket. Any portion of the claim not reimbursed because of plan limitations (e.g., coinsurance amounts, deductibles, etc.) is the responsibility of the claimant.
Your insurer provides a health claim form for prescription drug claims that are not reimbursed using a pay-direct drug card as well as any other type of health claim (e.g., paramedical practitioners, vision care, supplies etc). This form must be completed and signed by the Plan Member. Please advise Plan Members to attach original receipts when submitting a claim (photocopies not accepted). Plan Member should keep a photocopy of all claim documents.
Dental claims are typically submitted electronically through your Dental office.
Most transactions will occur at the point of sale (i.e., pharmacy).
If, for any reason, the Plan Member’s pay-direct drug card was not used at the point of sale, or if the Plan Member loses hispay-direct card, simply have the Plan Member complete the insurer’s drug claim form and attach the original receipt(s). Plan Member may submit claims directly to the insurer.
Other Health Claims (e.g., vision care, health professional services, prostheses, etc.)
Have the Plan Member complete the appropriate claim form and attach the original receipt(s). Plan Member may submit claims directly to the insurer.
Authorization from a physician is required for certain paramedical practitioners - please refer to the master contract for additional details. Paper claim submission forms can be obtained here.
For any extensive course of treatment involving crowns, bridgework, etc., which may exceed $300, we recommend the Plan Member ask his/her dentist to complete a cost estimate before the work is completed. Send the estimate to the insurer’s claim department to determine how the expenses will be reimbursed.
Before incurring any large dental expenses, or beginning any orthodontic treatment, the dental service provider should complete a treatment plan and submit it to the insurer. The insurer will calculate the benefits payable for the proposed treatment, so the Plan Member will know in advance the approximate portion of the cost they will have to pay.
