Every Delaware provider that you use must clearly disclose to you in writing if they (or any provider practicing in their group practice or facility) are not in your network (non-network). Each non-network provider in Delaware must obtain your written consent prior to treating you, and require you to sign a network disclosure statement indicating you will accept financial responsibility for any non-network services which may not be covered by your plan. You cannot be balanced billed by a non-network provider if the non-network provider (or the facility based provider employing non-network facility based providers) fails to provide you with the required network disclosure statement and obtain your written consent. This requirement includes the disclosure of non-network lab services ordered by your provider or facility.
If at this time you find it hard to pay your dental plan's premium, there is guidance in place for COVID-related relief that may help you. In summary, if your plan was in good standing (premium paid) as of March 1, 2020, then you may elect:
- To have your plan's grace period extend to 60 days, either retroactively starting on April 1, 2020, or begin on May 1, 2020.
- During this grace period your coverage will remain in force and any claims you may have will be processed.
- After the extended grace period, you have the option to pay the owed premium broken-up over the remaining months of the policy.
- For example, if there are 6 months remaining on the policy, you have the option to pay the unpaid premium in 6 installments, in addition to your regular monthly premium.
