SmileCard Members
There are NO claims for the SmileCard plan. This plan is simply a discount membership at partnering dental provider locations. Members are responsible for payment of services at the time treatment is rendered unless providers choose to make other financial arrangements.

 

What if a patient needs to see a specialist?
Please have the member contact Argus Customer Care at 1.877.864.0625. We will be able to inform the member which specialist in their area has agreed to offer a discount. No authorization is required for members to visit an in-network specialist.
Are services that are not listed on the plan fee schedule covered?
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 members 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.
