Dental insurance is rapidly playing a larger and larger role in helping people obtain dental treatment. Since we strongly feel our patients deserve the best possible dental care we can provide, and in an effort to maintain the high quality of care, we would like to share some facts about dental insurance with you.
Dental insurance is not meant to be a pay-all, it is only meant to be an aid.
Many plans tell their insured that theyll be covered up to 80% or up to 100%. In spite of what you're told, we've found that most plans cover about 40% to 50% of an average fee. Some plans may pay more, and some maybe less. The amount your plan pays is determined by how much your employer paid for the plan. The less your employer paid for the insurance, the less youll receive.
It has been the experience of many dentists that some insurance companies tell their customers that "The dentist's fees are above the usual and customary fees" rather than saying, "Our benefits are low." Remember you get back only what your employer puts in, less the profits of the insurance company.
Many routine dental services are NOT covered by insurance carriers.
Our office sends out monthly statements to each patient with an outstanding balance regardless of insurance involvement.
Please do not hesitate in asking us any questions about our office policies. We want you to be comfortable in dealing with these matters and we urge you to consult us if you have any questions regarding our services and/or fees. We will fill out and file insurance forms at no charge.
If you have any questions regarding your insurance, we ask that you contact your company regarding the specifics and details of the plan it is conducting in your behalf.
