Eligibility information should be updated every year or whenever there are changes in household size, household income or if someone in your household obtains or loses medical coverage or employment.

If the eligibility information is not updated and/or completed within deadline the account will be charged 100% for services provided until required documentation is obtained by NCDV Personnel. Enrollee will not be eligible to receive discounts until all required documentation is on file.

It is to the member’s advantage to bring insurance coverage information as soon as it is obtained to avoid paying unnecessarily for a service covered by the newly acquired plan. NCDV will refund patient any payment made for services covered retroactively when patient brings information immediately when coverage is obtained and within filing deadlines. If you have any questions or need clarification you may contact any of NCDV offices and speak with the Registration Clerk.
