51+: New Anthem Dental Carry-In Feature
Feb 20, 2015
You may already be aware of the carry-over feature for members with Anthem's Dental Prime and Dental Complete plans. But did you know that Anthem is one of only a handful of carriers offering a new dental carry-in feature? With this new feature, your clients may bring in maximum carry-over amounts from a previous dental carrier and keep balances already established.
Carry-over versus carry-in
Annual maximum carry-over: allows existing members (with less than $500 in claims a year) to carry over up to $250 each year they qualify. They can accumulate up to $1,000 in additional benefits. After they reach their annual maximum, members can use their extra carry-over amounts for any covered dental procedures (except orthodontia).
NEW Annual maximum carry-in: extends this feature to groups that move to Anthem with a rollover/carry-over feature from another carrier. This feature lets members carry-in up to $1,000 of their unused annual maximum benefits to Dental Prime and Dental Complete.
Who does this apply to?
New large groups and National Accounts in all states
Groups moving from Dental Blue to Dental Prime or Dental Complete (large group and National Accounts in all states)
Groups with 100 eligible contracts or more
Groups must have Anthem's carry-over feature to be eligible for the new carry-in benefit. The dental maximum carry-in feature is a one-time event. No changes can be made once the process is submitted.
