We want to make you smile, even when reviewing documents like your Explanation of Benefits (EOB). And while it may not be the most exciting piece of paper you’ll receive, we want to be sure they’re as easy to understand as possible.
So, to help, we’ve created this handy Step-by-Step Guide:
Your EOB will tell you how much of your benefits were applied toward your treatment and how much you have left.
A few things to look out for:
That the treatment you were billed for matches the one you received.
Amount Billed: The total amount billed for the procedure
Deductible Applied: The amount of your deductible that went to pay for the total billed.
Paid by Your Dental Plan: The amount we covered.
Your Share: The remaining left that you are responsible for paying out-of-pocket.
Use them for your taxes or to document qualified expenses for your HSA, FSA, and HRA.
If you haven’t already, create a MySmile® account at DeltaDentalWa.com. Here, you can review your EOB history, print ID card, get out-of-pocket cost estimates, and more. This will also make your information available on your PC or mobile devices.
