If your practice uses paperless services, congratulations! You’ve taken a major step toward streamlining your office and helping the environment.

If you’re still undecided, please consider the advantages you’ll enjoy with direct deposit (also called EFT – electronic funds transfer) and online claim statements:

  • Access funds more quickly than with mailed checks
  • Avoid lost or stolen checks
  • Reduce clutter, free up storage space
  • View, download, save and/or print documents anytime
  • Impress patients with your eco-friendly office

It’s easy to get started:

  •  Review questions and answers about direct deposit.
  • Register for your free, secure Provider Tools account (each person in the practice who will use Provider Tools should obtain an account).
  • Log in and select EFT and ERA. Review the instructions for EFT.
  • Complete the registration process for direct deposit.

In addition, if you work with a clearinghouse to transmit electronic claims, you can:

  •  Choose ERA (electronic remittance advice) from any or all the carriers you work with by signing up with your clearinghouse.
  • Or, for ERA just from Delta Dental, log in, select EFT and ERA, and follow the instructions for ERA.
