Avoid submitting duplicate claims
Did you know that 99% of the claims submitted to Delta Dental are processed in 7 days or less? And we process 100% of all claims in less than 30 days.
Delta Dental strives for timely claims processing and fast payment. If you submit your claims electronically, they are typically processed the same day. Claims that require additional information or documentation may take longer to process. You can easily check claim status using the Dental Office Toolkit®, or use your practice management software to verify the status.
Submitting duplicate claims slows the processing time for all claims. Therefore, resubmit a claim only if you are unable to verify the claim status within two weeks after the original submission date
Moving forward, Delta Dental will no longer issue Explanation of Benefits statements for exact duplicates of previously processed claims. This applies to all federal dental programs administered by Delta Dental’s Federal Government Programs division.
