ExcelHealth offers comprehensive dental insurance* for seniors that works in conjunction with our mobile dentistry and telehealth services. ExcelHealth manages all operations and enrollment, enabling the local dental provider to focus on delivering quality care to residents.
The Plateau Senior Comprehensive Dental Insurance Plan adds NO additional out-of-pocket expense for the resident, family, or nursing home.
ExcelHealth will attempt to call RP/POA for Private Pay residents to explain available care options, provide quotes for on-site services, and obtain the proper consents from the responsible party or resident as necessary prior to any treatment being rendered.
**NOTE: ExcelHealth understand that not EVERY resident in the facility will will consent to dental treatment. In addition, some residents have an outside provider they may choose to continue using. Patient right will NEVER he violated , but we do ask that the facility continue to encourage both residents and their families to participate in our program as a best practice.
**NOTE: Any resident not being seen due to health concerns will need a Physican’s order so there are no violations with state and Federal Regulations. ExcelHealth will need a copy of the order.
Once approved for the Senior Comprehensive Dental Insurance Policy, residents will be on the Patient List for each scheduled dental clinic visit. In general, the ﬁrst 2-3 clinic visits to the facility will provide participating residents with exams, cleanings, x-rays, and a dentist prescribed treatment plan which will be followed during subsequent routine clinic visits. Also, all participating residents with dentures or partials, will have those appliances scanned into our digital database. This digital record provides fast and accurate replacement dentures which can be mailed directly to the facility for the resident’s immediate use.
