Thanks for the answer. Few comments:
>You can return your 50% reimbursement to the insurer, who would then be obligated to pay your new claim to Dentist B
I didn't know actually, that I'm eligible to return that reimbursement to the insurer myself. I thought only service provider must return the reimbursement and close the claim?
>Now, if it turns out that Dentist B's bill is larger than Dentist A's
Yes, that is what happening. Dentist B's bill is twice larger that A's
>then you would be entitled to additional reimbursement from the insurer to cover 50% of those additional costs
This sounds fair. But it looks to me that if the insurer was ready to reimburse for that additional costs from Doctor B, it would already to that. But instead they rejected entire claim. I wonder what could be reason for that.
>If there are additional charges, then you would have a new claim for 50% of those Dentist B charges.
Yes, there are additional charges with Dentist B, but the insurer rejected entire claim due to the first claim with Doctor A is still open. I think I should contact the insurer about that?
