I have WellPoint Dental Insurance offer to me though work. I went to a dentist that offer a free oral exam. He filed a claim for approval to WellPoint for a deep cleaning. I waited for the approval which I got stating they would cover up to $227.00. So I was fine with that and proceeded the have the work done.
I had to pay for the dentist in full for the work and then I submitted the claim to WellPoint. This was the way the dentist had me do it. Now it has been like pulling teeth from WellPoint to pay me the $227.00 they said they would cover. It was over a month later when I called Wellpoint and was told they missed placed the claim. I had to fax it to them. I was told they would have the check in the mail….. Still waiting another two weeks since I faxed the claim in.
I have not gotten my $227.00 which at this point I could really use. The dentist I went to told me that is why he had me pay in full since this kind of thing happens all the time. If I did not get this plan though work I would cancel it I am so upset. How much longer should I give them to get me back my money? And then what should I do if I do not still get my $227.00? Advise please.
