Most dentists offer the service of filing dental claims for their patients. If your dentist doesn't file the claim, you may submit it on your own. You have two options:
Option 1: Download and complete a dental claim form. After you complete the top portion, have your dentist fill out the bottom. Then, send the form to Ameritas.
Option 2: Send Ameritas the original copy of the itemized dental bill (the one with the dental procedure codes). Be sure to send a cover letter with your contact information and insurance policy/certificate number.
