Frequently Asked Questions

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q: When will I receive my Membership Card?

Since all in-network offices can access your information using your name, birthday, and employer, we do not issue physical Membership Cards. Our team members will verify your eligibility and benefits ahead of time or at the time of your appointment. 

Q: How do I use my orthodontia benefit?

Northwest Dental Benefits Members are welcome to start orthodontia anytime and do not require a practice referral. Your chosen orthodontia provider will contact our offices to verify your eligibility. 

Members who choose treatment at Avondale Dental Group or Peach Orthodontics are eligible for up to $2,500 in benefit. All other local orthodontia providers are covered under your $2,000 lifetime orthodontia maximum.
 
There is a six (6) month disbursement waiting period, meaning benefits will become eligible for payout 6 months after the initial enrollment date.

(Ex. If you joined Northwest Dental Benefits in January, your benefit will become eligible for payout in July.)
Please note, this does not mean you cannot start right away. You are welcome to begin treatment anytime!

Q: When do my benefits reset?

With a few exceptions, most plans' Annual Maximums reset on January 1st of each year. Contact your HR Department for your group's specific plan year. 

Your Lifetime Orthodontia Maximum does not reset.

Q: Where can I find a complete list of covered services?

A copy of your Detailed Plan Summary, which includes a list of covered services and associated copays, is available through your HR administrator.
