Every year, many dental patients end up letting some of their dental benefits go unused, costing them the chance to potentially save hundreds of dollars on dental care. If you’ve kept up with your insurance premiums, you deserve to get the most out of your plan by enjoying high-quality care while keeping your personal costs to a minimum. Our team at Cappello Family Dental is more than happy to walk you through the process of maximizing your dental insurance benefits.
Compared to general health insurance, dental insurance is much more focused on prevention. Services designed to catch and stop dental problems before they start – like regular checkups, cleanings, and X-rays – tend to receive more coverage, to the point where some policies will pay for them in full. By having two routine appointments every year, you can save money on your care while also minimizing the risk that you’ll suffer from a more serious dental issue.
Dental insurance will vary from patient to patient and is ultimately your responsibility, but our team is more than happy to help you understand your plan and aid you along the way. Most of the time, your plan will look something like this:
Note that some companies will have different definitions for what constitutes a “major” or “minor” procedure. Also, most of the time insurance won’t help pay for cosmetic treatments unless they have a health benefit.
Finding a dental office that is within your insurance’s network will let you enjoy the maximum amount of savings that your plan allows. To find out whether we’re in-network with your own provider, call us with your insurance information. We are more than happy to work with out-of-network providers as well and will handle the process of filing the necessary claims. You can also count on us to look for ways to cut down on your own costs as much as possible.
