If you are a LIBERTY Dental Plan member, and you have been impacted by any of these fires, we may be able to help by:

  • Relaxing time limits for prior authorizations or referrals
  • Extending filing deadlines for claims
  • Allowing access to appropriate out-of-network providers if in-network providers are unavailable due to the disasters or if you are out of the area due to displacement from the fires.

 

If you need assistance, please contact us at (888) 703-6999.

Thank you.
