Dental Insurance is the contract that has been negotiated between your employer and the dental insurance company. As a result, the benefits you are eligible for will be determined by that contract and not your dental office.
It is very important to understand that your treatment plan is based on your individual needs and not dictated by what your insurance plan allows.
Most dental insurance plans have a dollar amount limitation each year and will cover services up to that limit regardless of what you may need in addition to that.
Please be aware that what your dental plan covers is not tailored directly for your individual needs.
Our office will strive to help you maximize your insurance benefits. Upon your request, we will submit pre-authorizations prior to dental treatment.
Our office will accept assignment from your dental insurance provider if you have the correct details in order for the claim to be submitted electronically. Any portion not reimbursed by your insurance provider will be due upon completion of appointment.
Due to the Freedom of Information Policy (FOIP) most dental insurance companies will not correspond with dental offices. As a result of this, it is the patients’ responsibility to know their dental coverage and its limitations. Our staff is always available to help you understand the information the insurance company provides you with.
