Understanding How Dental Insurance Works
Upon your first visit, we’ll make sure to gather all of your insurance information. Once your appointment is complete, we’ll perform an overview of the care you received, file all necessary claims, and collect any payments on treatments not covered by your insurance. Next, we’ll get the claims processed and make sure to receive the rest of your payment from the insurance company. The team members are highly experienced in working with dental insurance, so feel free to ask any questions you have about your coverage. We always want to make our patients feel comfortable during the visit, especially as we process your insurance.
What Your Dental Insurance Plan Covers
Dental insurance companies offer many plans and benefits, which is incredibly common in that industry. Unfortunately, this can make it difficult to know exactly what’s covered and what is not. With that said, some patterns can be safely assumed when it comes to dental treatments. One of the most common forms of care widely covered is preventive care, mainly because basic cleanings and checkups (on top of at-home oral care) offer the most effective solutions for preventing serious issues from developing. At the very least, they can catch issues early, making treatment easier. Overall, dental insurance companies cover care by the following guidelines Below.
- Preventive services, which include oral exams, cleanings, x-rays, and fluoride treatments.
- Minor restorative services include tooth-colored restorations and amalgam restorations.
- Major restorative services include dental crowns, bridges, partials, dentures, and implants.
Most major restorative services require a Predetermination of Benefits from the insurance company before treatment is started. Our team is trained in filing the Predetermination of Benefits for our patients. Keep in mind that most dental plans will not cover treatments that aren’t deemed medically necessary, including cosmetic procedures. Our team will work with you to determine what is not covered by your insurance policy.
