Electronic claims processing allows us to process your claims the day they're received and send you a check within 7 business days. Plus, most software lets you submit claims and attachments while simultaneously creating accounting records.
We accept dental claims from a number of clearinghouses that offer a variety of electronic claims tools and solutions, including DentalXChange, Change Healthcare, Tesia and Secure EDI. Our network providers are reimbursed up to 30 cents for eClaims.*

*Please note: reimbursement of electronic claim applies to Ameritas participating providers. Quarterly checks will be issued (February, May, August, November) for amounts of $25 or greater to active network providers. Reimbursement will be on a cumulative basis.
2017 CDT codes
Keeping up on all the changes in dental procedure codes can be difficult. You can rely on Ameritas to have the most up-to-date information, though.
On January 1, 2017, the new Current Dental Terminology © American Dental Association dental procedure codes will take effect. We’ve updated our claims-paying system, and we will continue to process claims efficiently and accurately through this routine update. The new codes can only be accepted beginning January 1, so please make sure your claims contain the most current codes by referencing a CDT 2017 manual.
