I knew I was going to be laid-off soon, so I went to the dentist while I was still employed and still insured. My insurance lasted for nearly 2 months after I was let go. For the treatment I received, I recently received notice of a duplicate bill, billed much later and after my insurance ran out so it was showing as not covered. Can they do this? Shouldn't having insurance at the time of service cover it?
If the dental service was provided while you were covered then you shouldnt have to pay. Them choosing to bill after the insurance ran out should not be your problem. If service was provided November 1-20 and insuance ran out November 30 but billed Dec 4 you were covered and insurance should pay.
