Email Scam Alert
CDA has been notified by other state dental associations of an email scam that is targeting their members. The email has the subject line “Terry Recovery,” includes an association logo, and appears to be coming from the association’s email domain. This email is a scam and should be deleted immediately.
It is best practice to submit claims using your practice full fee (i.e practice's UCR and/or cash patient fee), not your contracted fee. This is recommend because most dental plans use the fees submitted on claims to help establish contracted fees within a region.
If you bill your contracted fee rather than your practice full fee, you're bringing down the “average” fee in your region.
Reference chapter 6 of the CDA Dental Benefit Plan Handbook for more information on completing and filing claim forms.
