Direct Pay Insurance

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

As the agent for two major Direct Pay Insurance schemes, Shields Dental & Implant Clinic helps keep costs manageable, and removes any administrative headaches for the patient.

Shields Dental & Implant Clinic is the direct pay provider for VHI Dental and DeCare Dental Direct Pay in Limerick City and County.

These schemes significantly reduce costs, and eliminate hassle for patients, with the practice handling claims submissions and being directly reimbursed by the providers.

The VHI Dental and DeCare Dentral 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 or DeCare Dental Direct Pay before attending Shields Dental & Implant Centre 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 providers directly reimburse the practice, minus any patient excess, thus removing the need for lengthy form filling in and waiting periods for reimbursement.
Contact DeCare Dental on 1890 130 017 prior to your first appointment, which may be an examination, cleaning, x-ray or any urgent dental treatment. DeCare Dental will confirm your entitlements, and prior to your appointment, you should let the dentist know that you want to use Direct Pay.

After registering with DeCare Dental, you will receive a membership card, which you should bring, along with a photo ID, to the practice. If further treatment is needed, Shields Dental & Implant Centre will provide DeCare Dental with a treatment plan for approval before your next visit.

The dentist submits your claim, and DeCare Dental pays the practice directly. You will only need to pay for any treatments or costs that are not covered by the plan.

Contact VHI Dental on 1890 789 999 at least 24 hours prior to your first appointment, and also let Shields Dental & Implant Centre 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 Centre will provide VHI Dental with a treatment plan for approval before your next visit.
