Dentrix Ideas

Add a third insurance (tertiary) for a patient.

Add the ability to set up a third (tertiary) insurance in the patient's Family File, and even a fourth (quaternary). This is increasingingly important because so many people are picking up Aflac's supplemental insurance. This is also needed for when a child's parents are divorced and have remarried, and both parents and/or step parents have insurance coverage for the children.

    Thank you all for the feedback! This feature is currently on our road map, but it is a bigger project than would appear to the casual eye. We’re already working on it, but our first opportunity to release it will be sometime next year. We hope you understand.

    YESSSS!!!!! We have wanted that for numerous years! Also would love to
    have the New Patient List to list the existing referring patients address
    so that we don't have to spend so much time looking it up. Would be a
    great help!

    I cant believe this is taking so long. Dentrix is the ONLY Dental software that does not have this capability. Been requesting this for at least 3 years now.

    This Idea has been on the platform for a very long time. It is unfortunate that most of the other dental software options cloud based or not have this available. Dentrix is one of the oldest and most used in dental offices. No wonder New Dental offices are electing to use cloud based platform.

    This request should have been completed at least 2 to 3 years ago.

    With children remaining covered on their parents dental plans through age 26 now, I am finding that many patients now have three and sometimes four insurances..can you please update Dentrix so that we made add the additional plans..

    We are contractually required to bill all insurances if we are in network. Dentrix is failing it's clients by not providing an easy means of creating and tracking tertiary claims. There is no excuse for this not being in development, it has been highly requested for over 4 years. Other software makes billing tertiary easy, I know Dentrix can do this too.

    Our office would benefit from this update, we have several patients with three insurance carriers.
