What is DeCare Direct Pay Insurance?

Direct Pay Dental Insurance is a great option for patients, as you do not need to pay for your dental treatment on the day, instead we submit the claim on your behalf and we receive payment directly from your insurer, DeCare.

Crescent Dental Clinic is a Direct Pay provider for DeCare in Limerick City and County. The advantages of having a Direct Pay policy areā€¦

  • Less strain on your pocket - We will deal directly with DeCare for the percentage of the costs covered by your policy.

  • Less hassle for you - We will take care of your claims submission .

The DeCare Dental Direct Pay scheme gives you 2 routine dental exams (including x-Rays) and 2 dental hygiene appointments each year, with up to 70% of the cost of other treatments also covered.
