Dental insurance is designed to provide you with a basic standard of general dental care. While some cosmetic dentistry procedures are covered by dental insurance they are only covered at a functional level – for example, dental insurance may help you pay for a crown to functionally protect your tooth but won’t pay the extra cost required to make it beautiful.
Can I still be a patient if your office isn’t on my insurance list?
You always have a choice in health care providers, and it is important that you are seen by a dentist that you trust and have built a relationship with. Our office is not a “participating” or “in-network” provider for any insurance company. Your specific insurance benefits will vary depending on the type of plan you have.
If you are on a DMO plan, you must go to one of the providers on your list in order to receive any benefit from your policy. If your plan is a PPO plan, you can usually see a dentist outside of your network. If you are unsure about your benefits, we recommend that you contact your insurance provider to discuss the details of your policy.
Will my insurance cover 100% of the dental costs?
It all depends on the procedure or dental work performed and your specific policy. Most dental insurance companies do not intend for their plans to cover all expenses. Their plans serve only as an aid for acquiring better care.
In spite of what you are told, most dentists find that the majority of plans cover 70%-100% of the fees for preventive care and 40%-50% of the fees for restorative care. The amount your plan pays is determined by how much you or your employer paid for the plan. It’s also important to know that your preventive care appointments are deducted from the annual maximum benefit that your policy provides. Your insurance provider should be able to help you with reimbursement or coverage information specific to your policy.
