Dental services not listed on the fee schedule are available to the member at a 25% discount off of our dental network’s normal charges.
How are member assigned to a provider office?
Members may choose any partnering provider at any time by calling Argus Customer Care. Members are not required to be assigned to an office in order to receive treatment from a partnering provider.
