Announcing the Ameritas Provider Locator App

Lincoln, Neb.//May 7, 2013// The group division of Ameritas Life Insurance Corp. announces its new mobile app that gives members the opportunity to locate a dental network provider right from their cell phone or tablet device.

“Our new mobile app is really a two-pronged approach to better serve our customers,” said Deb Ramsay, group managed care director. “Whether at home or traveling, access to good dental health is now at our members’ fingertips. It’s important for our members to easily find a quality dental network provider close by. The mobile app also gives us another avenue to promote our network providers who take such great care of our members. Giving our customers what they need and when they need it has always been a top priority for Ameritas.”

Ramsay added, “This free application is available in the Apple and Android app markets. Members simply search for the ‘Ameritas Provider Locator.’ After downloading, members can input search criteria and get results that include dental provider name, specialty, contact information, office hours, languages spoken and additional providers at the office location.”

Members can also:

  • Access a map of the provider office location.
  • Call the provider’s office or add to contacts right from the search results screen.
  • Email search results to family and friends.
  • Easily refine and narrow search results.
