Direct Pay Insurance

Direct Pay Dental Insurance is a win-win for the patient, making superb dental health affordable and providing a fast track to covering costs.

Shields Dental & Implant Clinic is the direct pay provider for VHI Dental. The scheme significantly reduces costs and eliminates hassle for patients, with the practice handling claims submissions and being directly reimbursed by the providers.

The VHI Dental Direct Pay schemes provide significant cover – up to 70% of the annual costs – for two routine examinations, x-rays, hygiene visits and extensive treatments.

All you have to do is contact VHI Dental before attending Shields Dental & Implant Clinic for your first appointment. Before treatment commences, a report will be sent to the insurance company for approval and a treatment plan provided to the patient. Following treatment, the scheme provider directly reimburses the practice, minus any patient excess, thus removing the need for lengthy form filling in and waiting periods for reimbursement.

Contact VHI Dental on 1890 789 999 at least 24 hours prior to your first appointment and also let Shields Dental & Implant Clinic know that you wish to use VHI Dental Direct Pay, to enable VHI confirm your entitlements.

After treatment, the dentist will get you to sign the VHI Dental claim form and submit the claim. VHI Dental will then pay the practice directly.

If further treatment is needed, Shields Dental & Implant Clinic will provide VHI Dental with a treatment plan for approval before your next visit.
