How Does a Dental Insurance Plan Work?
In most cases, you will still be required to pay for a portion of your care. Some of the fees and expenses you will typically incur include the following:
- Copayments are amounts that you must pay at the time that services are rendered. Not all types of dental insurance require copayments; however, PPO plans typically expect you to pay for a percentage of your care every time you are seen at the dentist’s office.
- Deductibles are a fixed dollar amount that you are required to pay before your dental insurance will kick in and pay for your dental expenses.
- Your annual maximum benefit limit is the amount above which your insurance policy will not pay for your expenses in an enrollment period of a year.
Additionally, in many cases your dental plan will not pay for cosmetic dentistry, high-quality materials and dental implants. Some plans may also exclude orthodontics and Invisalign® teeth straightening systems.
Most dental insurance policies are categorized as HMO or PPO plans:
A dentist that accepts HMO insurance is a part of a network of dentists and dental care providers. Patients in an HMO dental plan are required to stay within this network to obtain care. If they go out of network, their treatment will not be covered by their HMO dental insurance.
Finding a periodontist that accepts PPO insurance is usually easier. Even if the periodontist is not part of the preferred provider network established by the PPO, you can usually obtain coverage for at least a portion of your dental care for out-of-network providers. Staying in network, however, is usually the best way to manage costs for your dental care.
When determining your type and the extent of your care, it’s important to ask your provider some questions. Along with determining which periodontists are included in your network or work with your insurance, you should also ask a few additional questions about your coverage. Some of the most important questions to consider include the following:
- Are cosmetic procedures covered by my dental plan?
- Are orthodontic treatments like Invisalign® covered?
- What is my deductible for my dental coverage?
- Is there an annual maximum benefit for myself or my family?
- Are dental implants included in my dental plan benefits?
- How much will my copayments be?
- Are preexisting conditions covered by my plan?
The answers to these questions may help you to determine the best and most appropriate solutions for your dental insurance needs. At North Point Periodontics, we will work with you to explain the complexities of your dental insurance plan and to help you make the most practical and appropriate choices for your treatment and your financial situation.
