A. Membership and Application
DentalSave is available for anyone to join. We offer Individual, Couple and Family Dental Plans. Any two people per household are considered a couple (including roommates), and three or more household members make up a family. Part time and full-time students away at school may also be covered under the family plan. If at least one of the applicants is age 62 years or older, the senior rate with a slight discount will apply after your application is approved.
B. Your Effective Date
DentalSave membership operates on an annual basis. You are effective the day we receive your application and is valid for one year to the date of enrollment, which is opposite of what is done with dental insurance. Your application is usually processed within 72 hours of receipt.
C. How does the Dental Plan Work?
Simply show the dentist office your membership card or have the dentist call us to verify your membership. You must pay the dentist at the time of service. It’s that simple.
D. Choice of Provider
You must seek services by a participating DentalSave provider to receive the rates on the fee schedules.
E. Specialty Care/Specialist Referrals
No referral is needed when visiting any DentalSave specialists.
F. Emergency Dental Services
Emergency visits will be charged according to the fee schedule.
G. Coordination of Services
Since we are not governed by the same laws as insurance, it is entirely at the provider’s discretion on how to coordinate benefits.
H. Cancellation Policy
Membership fees are fully refundable within 30 days upon receipt of your application. After 30 days, annual Plan holders are entitled to a prorated refund based on how much time is left on their membership. All Refund Requests must be made by calling us at 800.828.2222.
Your one time processing fee is non refundable.
THIS PLAN IS NOT INSURANCE. THIS IS NOT A MEDICARE PRESCRIPTION DRUG PLAN.*
This plan does not meet the minimum creditable coverage requirements under M.G.L. c. 111M and 956 CMR 5.00. The plan provides discounts at certain health care providers for medical services. The range of discounts will vary depending on the type of provider and service. The plan does not make payments directly to the providers of medical services. Plan members are obligated to pay for all health care services but will receive a discount from those health care providers who have contracted with the discount medical plan organization. You may access a list of participating health care providers at this website. Upon request the plan will make available a written list of participating health care providers. You have the right to cancel within the first 30 days after receipt of membership materials and receive a full refund, less a nominal processing fee (nominal fee for MD residents is $5).
