my pt is 24 years old (DOB 12/26) and lives at home, she a her own policy through MetLife Dental and her mother (DOB 12/27) has a policy through Delta Dental. I want to confirm that her policy is primary and mothers is secondary. Is this correct???
Yes, the patient's policy should be primary. There would be only one exception if both carriers abide by the policy that has been in effect the longest then the mother's policy would be primary.
