Delta Dental
QuestionAnswer
Will I receive a Delta Dental identification card?Yes! You will receive a Delta Dental identification card within 7-10 Business days. When you (or a covered family member) receive dental care, simply present your card to the dentist’s office. Delta Dental dentists will file the claim for you. Please remind your dentist that your dental program is with Delta Dental of South Carolina – the address is on the reverse side of the identification card.
May I go to any dentist?Yes, you may go to the dentist of your choice. However, we encourage you to choose a Delta Dental PPO Network dentist so that you will receive the deepest discounts and maximize your benefits from the EVENING POST INDUSTRIES dental plan. Delta Dental PPO and Premier Network dentists will handle the paperwork for You.
If the dentist I choose is not in either Delta Dental network, how will benefits be paid?If your dentist is not in either Delta Dental network, benefits will be paid up to the submitted amount or the maximum non-network fee allowed per procedure. The benefit payment will be made directly to the dentist's office and the dentist’s office will bill you for all charges not covered by the plan.
How do I know if my dentist participates in one of Delta Dental’s networks?There are several ways to determine if your dentist is in a Delta Dental network, or, if you don’t have a regular dentist, to find a Delta Dental participating dentist in your area: Visit Delta Dental’s website at https://www.deltadentalsc.com/and select “Looking for a Dentist”. Choose Delta Dental PPO or Premier, and locate a list of dentists by zip code or a specific dentist by name. Call Delta Dental at 1-800-335-8266 to request a dentist directory. Simply ask your dentist if he or she is in the Delta Dental PPO or Premier networks.
If my dentist does not participate with Delta Dental, and I do not want to change dentists, will my dental services still be covered?Certainly! You are eligible for benefits even if your dentist does not participate in a Delta Dental network. However, you may have to file a claim for dental benefits yourself and the benefit payment will be sent directly to you by Delta Dental – the payment will not be made to your dentist. The benefit payment for each service is based on the amount charged by the majority of dentists – also referred to as the prevailing fee. If the dentist’s fee is higher than the prevailing fee, the patient is responsible for the balance, in addition to the deductible, coinsurance and any non-covered charges. Your out-of-pocket costs will be more if you do not use a Delta Dental network dentist
Will Delta Dental provide a benefit “predetermination” before I receive extensive dental Treatment?“Predetermination” is the process of reviewing a dental treatment plan and identifying the eligible benefits prior to the services being rendered. Delta Dental recommends (it is not required) that you receive a predetermination of benefits for any proposed dental treatment in excess of $200. Delta Dental’s participating dentists are very familiar with this process and will gladly submit the predetermination documents for you. If you use a non-participating dentist, simply ask the dentist to forward a copy of the treatment plan to Delta Dental of South Carolina. Our customer service department is available to answer any questions about benefit predetermination.
Where can I get a claim form and how do I file a claim to receive benefits?You will not need a claim form if you visit a Delta Dental dentist. If you visit a non-network dentist, Delta Dental will accept any standard American Dental Association (ADA) claim form that details the services and treatment provided – a special claim form is NOT NECESSARY. However, a claim form is available on Delta Dental’s website https://www.deltadentalsc.com/ by selecting Subscribers, then My Benefits, then selecting Claim Form.
How do I contact Delta Dental if I have questions?Delta Dental’s nationwide toll-free number 1-800-335-8266 is listed on the ID card. Customer service is available Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. Eastern time. Experienced representatives are able to answer over 99 percent of all questions during the initial phone conversation. If your question requires further research, the customer service representative will call you back within one business day with either a response or an update on the progress made.

QuestionAnswer
How do I know what providers are in-network and what services they provide?Superior Vision’s online provider directory lists all of the providers within the network and includes the services that each offers. You can also do an advanced search to find a LASIK provider.
What if my provider isn’t in your network?you may fill out the online Provider Nomination form in the member area of https://www.superiorvision.com/ We make every effort to contract with nominated providers. If you choose to visit an out-of-network provider, call Customer Service at 800.507.3800 to receive an eligibility verification number before your appointment. You will need to pay in full up front and then submit a claim form and a detailed receipt for out-of-network reimbursement as outlined in your Schedule of Benefits.
Are discounts available?You are eligible for discounts off retail charges for a variety of lens upgrades and add-ons, overages on frame allowances and/or additional frame and lens purchases. Services must be obtained from a provider who “accepts discounts.” Before your appointment, please confirm with your provider that they offer discounts as there are some in-network providers who do not offer them.
How can I use my cosmetic (elective) contact lens allowance?You may choose to wear contact lenses in lieu of glasses. The specified allowance (depending on your plan) may be applied toward the purchase of any type of elective contact lenses. You may also use your in-network benefits at SVContacts.com.
How long does it take for me to get my insurance card once my coverage is active?You should receive your Vision card(s) within 7-10 Business days.
May I go to one provider for an eye exam and another provider for eyewear?Yes, you choose how you’d like to use your benefit.
Can I get both contact lenses and glasses with the Superior Vision plan?Your Schedule of Benefits tells you the frequency with which you may receive benefits. You may choose to get contacts instead of eyeglass frames and lenses, but you cannot get both covered within a benefit year. After using your benefits in full for materials, we offer great discounts on the unlimited purchase of additional frames, lenses and contacts.
Do you cover LASIK surgery?While LASIK is not a covered benefit, Superior Vision has a large network of refractive surgeons nationwide who specialize in laser vision correction. These providers offer members a 20% discount off their surgical fees for these procedures. We also have a large LASIK provider network that offers discounts ranging from 15-50%.
What is Superior Vision’s SmartAlert program?. Superior Vision’s SmartAlert program facilitates communication between you, your eye care provider and your medical plan providers about lifestyle or health issues that may impact your eyes and vision. While participation is completely voluntary by both members and providers, participation may help you keep on top of current health issues or aid in the early recognition and diagnosis of something new. The SmartAlert program includes the My Vision Lifestyle Update and Provider Communication forms—both are available in the secure area of https://www.superiorvision.com/ .
Health Reimbursement Account
QuestionAnswer
How does the HRA work?The new plan is all about encouraging healthier lifestyles. Complete healthy activities and you’ll be rewarded with HRA dollars that can be used to pay deductible charges and Rx costs. Employees and covered spouses will have the ability to earn Wellness Incentives by completing an Annual Physical or the Personal Health Assessment.
How much can I earn?Every time you or your covered spouse complete one of the qualifying activities you will earn $300 in your HRA. Employees and their covered spouses can earn up to $600 each.
What types of services can I use my HRA to pay?You can use your HRA balance to pay for medical and prescriptions costs only. The HRA cannot be used for dental services or vision correction.
If I incur medical or rx claims prior to completing any of the qualifying tasks can I still use my HRA to pay for those claims?Unfortunately no. Please be aware you need to complete the tasks and have the HRA funds in the account prior to the date of service for the claim. Please start working on your tasks early so the funds are available at the time of claim.
How long does it take from the time I complete one of the tasks until my HRA is funded with my reward?Most situations it takes 2-3 weeks from the time you complete your physical or the confidential Personal Health Assessment (PHA). Please note this timeframe could be longer if your provider delays filing the claim for your Annual Physical. Please encourage the provider to file the claim as soon as possible so you receive your reward timely.
Is the Personal Health Assessment confidential?The PHA is 100% confidential. None of your responses will be shared with your employer. The purpose of the PHA is to identify your risk factors and communicate areas of improvement.
How do I use my BCBS Debit card to pay for prescriptions?Once you qualify for rewards and receive your Debit card you can swipe the Debit Card at the pharmacy to pay for your prescriptions.
How do I use my BCBS Debit card to pay for medical services?This will vary. In some instances the provider will be able to calculate the BCBS discounted price at the point of service. In these situations you would be able to swipe your Debit card at the point of service to pay for claims. Please note, for some medical services the provider may not be able to calculate the BCBS discounted price at the time of service. In this situation the provider should submit the claim to BCBS and then bill you at home for any remaining exposure you have. You can use your debit card to pay for any medical bills received at home by phone or by including your debit card as payment on any invoice you receive.
What if I participate in the HRA plan but I also contribute to the FSA?If you participate in the HRA and the FSA you will have one Debit Card for both the HRA and the FSA. Once you have earned rewards by completing the qualifying tasks the HRA will be the primary form of payment for any Medical or Rx claims. As a result when you swipe your Debit Card for medical or rx services any balance in your HRA will be applied first and any remaining balance will pull from your FSA balance. Please note, the HRA cannot be used for vision or dental services so the FSA will be primary for those claims.
How do I know what my account balance is?Balance information for both your HRA and FSA (if applicable) can be viewed on line.  Go to www.southcarolinablues.com and log onto My Health Toolkit.  If you are a new user, you will need to register first.  Click “Register Now” from the home page to get started.  You may also call Customer Service and that number is on the back of your BlueCross BlueShield ID card.
