Claim to Fame

Fast claims processing

Claims processing shouldn’t be a hassle. That’s why with Delta Dental, our providers and members benefit from a fast and accurate system that can process most electronic claims the same day. But, just how does our system compare to others, and are you taking advantage of all the benefits?

Learn how Delta Dental’s claims system benefits you with “Claim to Fame,” a two-minute video that follows Dash, a Delta Dental electronic claim, on her journey to become a payment. “Claim to Fame” is part of a five-part “Benefit from Your Benefits” video series that explores dental benefits for Delta Dental providers, members, benefit managers and anyone interested in dental benefits.


Going digital

Take the wait and wonder out of claims processing by going electronic. While paper claims can take two to three days to process, most electronic claims are processed the same day! This means that members and benefit managers always know the status of their claims, and providers are paid quickly.

In fact, providers who switch from paper to electronic claims submission will save money and become more efficient by cutting down on staff time required to submit and send paper claims. Since most dental offices are already computerized, the switch to electronic is just a matter of choosing to submit claims through our Dental Office Toolkit (DOT) if you are a participating dentist, or choosing a clearinghouse. If you are interested in switching to electronic claims, we encourage you to learn more about DOT below, or take a look at our list of clearinghouses.
