Dental Insurance Coverage
Having dental insurance coverage is a great asset. Your insurance policy is based on an agreement between you, your company, and the insurance company, in most cases. There are many types of insurance carriers, insurance plans and group policies available.
Dental Insurance Breakdowns
It is difficult for your dental office to be aware of the many types of plans or group policies available. Sometimes the details of your dental insurance coverage are only made known to the policy holder. Because of this, we cannot always inform you of your insurance coverage for all dental procedures.
Most dental offices will do their best to educate their patients on the details of their insurance plan. This is referred to as providing an insurance breakdown. We make every effort to educate you about the details of your insurance coverage. However it is up to you to familiarize yourself with your insurance plan. We are here to help you along the way and answer any questions you have.
If the insurance company permits us to access your plan details, we make every effort to do obtain your breakdown. If we cannot obtain them however, the patient is responsible for obtaining the insurance details. We are always happy to review this information with you.
Dental Treatment & Dental Insurance Considerations
Our first goal as dental health professionals, is to ensure that all of our patients achieve and maintain, optimal oral health for life. This is why we do not make treatment recommendations based on insurance coverage. We make our treatment recommendations based on what is best for all of our patients, regardless of insurance coverage.
We understand that our patients have a budget that they would prefer to follow, which is why we advise our patients before treatment occurs. When we have access to your insurance details, we have a rough idea of how much of the treatment is estimated to be covered by your insurance plan. We also have the ability to let you know when your insurance coverage is close to being fully utilized.
Please contact us if you have any questions about your insurance coverage. We are happy to meet with you and discuss your plan details!
