HOW DENTAL PLANS WORK
Your dental plan is an employee benefit provided by your employer. The insurance company portion is determined by the contract your employer has set with the insurance company. The higher the premium paid by your employer, the more generous the reimbursement.
As there are thousands of employers and plans in existence, we are unable to know the details of each plan. We do our best to update our records as patients inform us of any benefit exclusions or changes they have with their plan.
We will always diagnose and treat you based on your actual health needs without regard to the limitations imposed by your coverage. To treat you based on only your coverage would not be ethical. Our promise to you is to provide you with the finest care, at the most reasonable cost, regardless of insurance coverage.
As a courtesy to our patients, we bill most dental insurance providers electronically on the day of service. By filing electronically, oftentimes we can get immediate approval from the insurance company so you know exactly what they will pay on your treatment plan. It is your responsibility to be familiar with the terms and limitations and exclusions of your dental plan. You are responsible to pay any remaining fees that your plan doesn’t pay. To avoid misunderstandings, we recommend that patients feel free to discuss any concerns with us. Questions about coverage? Unsure of eligibility and available benefits? We can access your insurance information via computer. Just give us a call and we are happy to look up your insurance for you, even if you’re not a patient.
