Coordination of Benefits - Insurance Tips with Maria

Hi all,

It's been almost two weeks since we've put up an insurance tips post so here it is. There is a small description in this post but most of it is in the YouTube video.

Many patients are not aware of Coordination of benefits. This is when both husband and wife have dental and/or health coverage. You first submit claims to your own plan. Once you have received payment and it is anything less than 100% you then photocopy the explanation of benefits and send to your spouse’s benefit for reimbursement of the difference. This also applies to dependents. However, this becomes a little more complex, as you must submit for each child to the parent’s benefit plan, whose birthday comes first in the year.

 Please Contact Maria should you need more information.

Have a great week!
