Vhi Dental - Online Claiming

(Note: you will be directed to an external site)

 

Vhi Dental plans give you excellent cover for check-ups, examinations and cleanings along with great benefits for more costly dental treatments like fillings and crowns. Now we have made it even easier for you to use your Vhi Dental policy. There are two ways you can claim your Vhi Dental benefits through Dentist Direct Pay and Pay and Claim. Note: You will be directed to an external site.

 

 

With Dentist Direct Pay, you only pay the dentist for the costs not covered by your Vhi Dental plan. There's no need for you to submit a claim. The dentist will submit the claim to us and we'll reimburse the dentist directly.

 

Step 1: Before visiting the dentist

  • Select a dentist who is in the Vhi Dental Network - full list and make an appointment
  • You then must phone Vhi Dental before you visit the dentist - call: 046 9077337
  • Then, Vhi Dental will confirm your benefit entitlements to you and to your dentist.

 

Step 2: At the dentist

  • You attend the dentist for an Exam, Scale & Polish and if necessary X-rays
  • If further treatment is needed, the dentist will forward a treatment plan to Vhi Dental for approval before your next visit
  • Following treatment, you need to sign the claim form which the dentist will have
  • You should only pay the dentist for the costs that are not covered by your plan.

 

Step 3: Submit the claim

  • The dentist submits the claim to Vhi Dental
  •  Vhi Dental pays the dentist directly.
