Can I use Louisiana Dental Plan if I have other dental insurance coverage?
Louisiana Dental Plan (LDP) can be used with other dental insurance/indemnity plans. If there is a Co-pay on the procedure you are having, then we recommend you use LDP plan to lower your out of pocket expenses. To use LDP and your insurance/indemnity plan together, you must go to a Louisiana Dental Plan Preferred Provider which can be found at WWW.LOUISIANADENTALPLAN.COM. Simply pay the reduced bill in full at the time services are rendered and then submit the claim to your dental insurance/indemnity carrier. You must send the claim into your insurance/indemnity carrier as the provider's office is not required to do this for you. LDP can't be combined with any other discount or capitated plan.
