Submit a Claim

If you visit a Delta Dental of Illinois network dentist or assign benefits, you won’t have to submit any paperwork – your dentist will submit a claim directly to Delta Dental of Illinois on your behalf after your dental appointment. On the other hand, if you visit an out-of-network dentist, you may have to submit your own dental claim to Delta Dental of Illinois. 

To submit a claim (for services received in the U.S.):

  1. After you visit the dentist, pay the dentist directly for charges and ask for a document with a description of services rendered, procedure codes and fees charged. 
  2. Complete the appropriate claim form:
    • Members who receive dental insurance through their employer group, can complete this claim form
    • Members who purchase their own dental plan can complete this claim form
  3. Submit the claim form, receipt of payment and supporting documentation to Delta Dental of Illinois at the appropriate address below. NOTE: We request that a receipt of payment and supporting documentation be included and the claim form must include the procedure codes done, including tooth numbers if appropriate, and identifying information for the primary member and patient if different. 

​Please note: For claims outside of the United States, please reference these instructions to submit international claims and complete this international claim form.
