Insurance

insurance.gifRegarding Your Dental Insurance...
Dental insurance is often a complex and confusing issue. The lack of information provided by some insurance companies often makes it difficult for patients to properly understand their benefits.

Dental insurance is a contract between your employer and a dental insurance company. Your employer- along with the insurance company- chooses the services that will be covered and the benefits that you will receive. This office has no say as to what procedures may or may not be covered.

Our goal is to provide you with optimal dental care. Your insurance company is in business to make money for its shareholders. We will strive to help you receive the maximum benefits to which you are entitled under your insurance plan, but we are here to do what is best for YOU- not what is best for your insurance company.

Your insurance company may utilize different strategies for limiting the amount of benefits it pays out. Aside from restricting various procedures, most dental insurance plans limit the amount of benefits you may receive in a year. In addition, some insurance companies conveniently create their own arbitrary fee schedules, and then pay benefits according to their fee schedule.

Your insurance company may advise you to get a pre-authorization before starting treatment, knowing that the longer treatment is postponed, the less likely it is to be done. In MOST cases this is NOT necessary.

We will always discuss all fees with you before treatment is started, and we will gladly address your insurance questions at any time. Again, we will try to maximize the benefits you receive, but we are here to do what is best for YOU- not your insurance company.

Answers to Common Questions:

Q. What if I come in for a check-up, bitewing x-rays and cleaning twice a year, but have no other treatment?

Q. And if I need any other treatment?
A. All other treatments (except implants) will be rendered with at least a 15% courtesy off the standard fees. The more treatment you need, the more money you will save.

A. Just inform the receptionist- that's it! You will be asked to pay the yearly fee; there will then be NO additional fee for your check-up and cleaning TWICE in the next 12 months.

A. No problem! We will be happy to apply any treatment rendered in the last 30 days towards the program.
