As a courtesy to our patients, we will file your dental insurance for you. Dental insurance is a benefit provided by your employer to help with a patient’s dental needs. Not all dental offices will file your dental insurance, but we understand that you work hard for this benefit and want to help you utilize it. Since each dental plan can have different aspects, such as the same dental insurance company may have multiple types of plans, we take the time to verify your insurance for you at each visit.
Dental insurance is very different than medical insurance. Medical insurance is a contract that states that after the patient pays the annual maximum, the insurance company pays the rest in an effort to save the patient’s life if necessary. Dental insurance is better defined as a dental benefit. The plans selected by your employer are designed to help offset costs and help you stay healthy, but not to insure your mouth in any and all situations.
That is why medical insurance is more costly in comparison to dental insurance plans. Your employer has selected the dental insurance plan that is available to you.
Dental insurance covers some things, but not all services. This is a common misunderstanding for most people. In our experience, short term preventative treatment, such as cleanings, x-rays, exams are typically covered with a minimal out of pocket cost. It often depends on the plan you have with your insurance company. For more long term treatment, such as crowns, for example, the amount of coverage by the Insurance Company is less.
In addition to limitations of some dental insurance plans, some plans dictate the type of dental materials that can be used for procedures, such as metal fillings or only gold crowns. Not all dental materials are made equally and some materials work better in certain areas of the mouth than others. We will share with you the options for your situation along with the dental plan benefits so you can decide the best option for you.
There are numerous dental insurance plans with several differences. Our office is trained to understand the benefits of your specific plan and will help you receive the benefits your plan provides. In order for each patient to have the opportunity to be informed of their issues and what the treatment options are for them, we work with your dental insurance as a non-participating provider, and our patients continually comment on their gratefulness to learn their options.
We are honored you have selected Dr. Jacob Grapevine, our dentist in Plano, TX to provide you with the best dental care. It is a privilege to serve and develop a relationship with you and not just your teeth. If you know of someone who is looking for this type of service and care, please share our name with them.
