We’ll also be more than happy to help reach out to your provider to help you gather information about coverage for treatments that you need. Below, we’ve outlined some basic information that you should know about your plan.
Understanding How Dental Insurance Works
Before reading on, it’s important to take into consideration that every dental insurance plan is different, and to find out the specific details of your plan, it’s a good idea to call your insurance provider directly.
There are a few important terms that you’ll need to know in order to easily navigate your insurance plans and keep track of how much you’ll need to pay out of pocket at your visits. These include:
- Annual Deductible: Your deductible is a set amount of money that your insurance requires you to pay out of your own pocket before they begin covering the cost of your treatments. Typically, this amount ranges from $50-$100, depending on your plan.
- Your Premium: The premium is a monthly or annual amount that you pay in order to be covered by your dental insurance. Every year, your plan will renew, which can affect this amount.
- Yearly Maximum: The maximum is a capped-off amount of money that your dental insurance company is willing to pay for your dental treatments. Less than five percent of people with dental insurance are able to meet their maximum, causing them to lose benefits at the beginning of every year when their plan restarts.
What Does My Dental Insurance Cover?
Most dental insurance plans utilize a 100-80-50 structure when it comes to determining whether a treatment will be covered or not. Basically, what this means is that 100 percent of the cost of preventive treatments, like checkups and cleanings, 80 percent of non-invasive treatments like cavity fillings, and 50 percent of more serious procedures, such as tooth extractions, will be covered. It’s important to remember that this can change depending on your unique plan, so to learn whether your benefits will cover a treatment you need, we recommend calling your insurance provider directly.
