Dental Insurance Verification Form

Updated August 09, 2023

A dental insurance verification form is a document used by a dental care facility when requesting the insurance information of a patient. The form should be sent to the patient’s insurer so that they may detail the type of medical work which will be covered by the patient’s plan (preventative, major, periodontal, etc.) as well as any other aspect pertinent to the policy. Once received by the insurer, the form must be filled in with the patient’s information before being delivered back to the medical facility.
