How Dental Insurance Works
No two dental insurance policies are exactly alike. In order to provide accurate estimates for insurance coverage, we’ll need to review your individual policy. In most cases, you can expect to receive coverage that resembles the following:
- 100% preventive care covered
- Minor restorative care around 70%-80% covered
- Major restorative care around 50% covered
What is the Difference Between Dental & Medical Insurance?
There are a number of differences between dental and medical insurance coverage. One of the main differences is that dental insurers focus on prevention while medical plans are geared toward offsetting the cost of treatments for chronic illnesses and emergencies. Medical insurers also place more regulations on which practices and physicians’ patients can visit in order to receive coverage. PPO dental plans allow patients the flexibility to receive treatment coverage for services at almost any dentistry office.
In-Network VS Out of Network Dentistry
We are happy to process and file dental insurance claims for both in-network and out-of-network dental benefit plans. Our detail-oriented dentistry team members have experience processing claims to make the most of benefits for any provider.
While PPO dental insurance policies allow patients to visit the dentist of their choice, in-network dentists may be able to offer lower out of pocket treatment costs, faster turnaround times on preapprovals and other requests, and a wider range of knowledge on the plan’s policies and coverage. We are happy to offer in-network coverage for all of the following dental insurance plans:
- Aetna PPO
- BlueCross BlueShield
- Delta Dental PPO
- Delta Premier
- Health choice
- MetLife PPO
Out of Network Coverage
If you don’t see your plan listed above, please call our dental office to talk with a knowledgeable team member. In most cases, we’re able to provide treatment and complete claims to ensure you get the benefits you deserve. Our affordable treatments fit your plan’s set price range, but in certain situations, you may need to pay the difference in pricing as well as your out-of-pocket percentage of treatment costs. If you’re ever concerned with the cost of treatment, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our team. We’ll be happy to help.
