Find out where your dental health stands, and how to improve it, with Ameritas’ new Dental Health Report Card. Individuals and groups with over 300 enrolled members can receive the report cards developed with the University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Dentistry. Ameritas and the UNMC College of Dentistry collaborated to create and refine the unique scoring system for these valuable reports.
Any individual with an Ameritas dental plan for a full, uninterrupted 12-month calendar period or more can access a personalized report card online through their secure member account on ameritas.com. Policy effective dates and renewal dates will determine which benefit year a report reflects.
Members receive a score for their dental health based on claims and procedures submitted while covered under the plan. The report card also offers suggestions for improving dental health.
Employers with groups over 300 enrolled members also have the opportunity to receive a Dental Health Report Card that indicates how their plan members' dental health rates overall. They'll gain insights into why dental health should be a priority, and learn where to find more information that can help communicate the importance of dental wellbeing to employees.
Ameritas also offers a dental cost estimator tool to help members estimate dental procedure costs. The tool gives fee range estimates for specific procedures with out-of-network general dentists in a defined ZIP Code. Members access the dental cost estimator through a secure member account. View a demo of the estimator on ameritas.com.
Ameritas members and plan administrators can sign up for secure online access to plan information. Benefit administrators can enroll, change or drop employee coverage, view policy benefits and more. Members can sign up for electronic explanation of benefits statements, see their certificate of insurance, specific plan benefits information and value-added extras like the Rx discount ID card. These services are free and easy to use.
