Understanding Dental Insurance
Do you know why medical and dental insurance plans are separate? Although they both have monthly premiums, each generally has a different focus when it comes to your healthcare. While medical insurance predominantly covers treatments for existing problems, dental insurance emphasizes the importance of preventing them in the first place. That’s why the benefits tend to lean heavily on preventive care and early, conservative treatment. As a result, you’re sure to get the most bang for your buck by taking full advantage of preventive services.
Your Dental Insurance Coverage
Although each dental insurance plan can differ from the next in specific benefits, there are some typical trends in coverage. If you aren’t sure about your plan’s coverage, just ask our team. We’ll be happy to take a look and explain your benefits to you. Your benefits may look like this:
- Preventive services (e.g., cleaning and checkup)—80 to 100 percent covered.
- Minor restorative services (e.g., tooth-colored fillings)—70 to 80 percent covered.
- Major restorative services (e.g., dental crowns)—50 percent covered.
& Out-of-Network Providers
We are in-network with the following insurances:
- MetLife (Not currently accepting new patients)
- Connection Dental Network
- Dental Health Alliance Network
The terminology of dental insurance can be confusing if you’re unfamiliar with it. When we say that we’re in-network, we mean that we’ve agreed with those companies on set prices for certain services, which saves you even more money. However, even if we are not in-network with your particular insurance plan, it doesn’t mean that we can’t help you with filing claims and getting the most reimbursement possible.
