If my insurance coverage ends after an appointment but before all the paperwork has gone through, will they still cover it?

My current job contract and the health insurance attached to it will be ending August 23rd. I just found out that I have one vision and one dental checkup per year covered under this plan, but I need to mail in the claim myself. (I have the forms, it looks like I mail them in and then the insurance company pays the doctors... is this how it is done? I have never had to do it this way.)
If I can get in to the optometrist and dentist before the end of my coverage will my insurance company still pay for it even though they will most likely actually get around to processing the claim after my coverage ends? and, will it be a huge hassle?
