Premera Medicare Coverage (Health Services)

I need to ask Lopez Senior Citizens who have the new Premera Medicare Advantage plan if they are having trouble with dental (or other) claims? My claim was denied, and a local dentist told me that all claims are being denied. I was on the phone with Premera for over an hour, but all they ended up doing was sending me a copy of my policy in the mail.

Both dentists' offices are telling me they have never heard of the dental plan/company: Dominion National or Dominion Dental.

I don't know if this is the final word, but I have been told, by a reliable source, that the Premera Medicare Choice option which is supposed to include dental coverage, does NOT include this coverage right now. That's why claims for dental work.... Read all

2) "Core Plus".... Read all

Joy, I got the policy with included dental coverage as well. I'm going to call around to some dentists tomorrow to see what they say. Next I will call the State Insurance Commissioner.

Povl, I think we may need to get together to talk this over and share what we know.
There are things I've found out that I chose not to put on Lopez Rocks.

Their dental coverage is VERY limited. It assumes you will use their dentists...and I could never find any in our state.
