Dental Insurance Basics
Although the plan you have may be somewhat different from your neighbor’s, they all have a few things in common. Most importantly, dental insurance comes with limited benefits that expire at the end of each year. Therefore, it is in your best dental and financial interest to schedule treatment as needed throughout the year—especially checkups. The components of a dental checkup—cleaning, examination and annual digital x-rays—are almost universally covered by any PPO plan. Prevention is key to maintaining dental health, and insurance companies know this. They’d rather pay to maintain your healthy smile than pay to repair or restore infected or damaged teeth. And you should, too!
In-Network vs. Out-of-Network
Dental Center of Jacksonville is an in-network provider with many insurance companies so that we can offer you the best care at the most affordable price. For example, if you have coverage with Cigna, Aetna, Delta Dental or MetLife, then our practice has arranged a pre-set rate for covered services. This means that once you’ve satisfied the deductible that your plan requires, you are only responsible for your coinsurance fee, often called a co-pay.
If we are out-of-network, then you should still consider coming to Dental Center of Jacksonville. Sometimes, out-of-network dental insurance coverage is the same or close to that of in-network plans. You can visit your providers website to compare the costs, or feel free to call our office and we’ll be glad to let you know what your plan covers for any particular procedure.
If you do need to pay an out-of-pocket expense for treatment, then chances are the cost will be minimal. We base our fees on what is a customary charge among the other dental practices in our area. Our fees are usually close to those set by dental insurance carriers.
How to Maximize Dental Insurance
The Dental Center of Jacksonville team will work hard to help patients maximize their dental insurance coverage. We have years of experience processing and filing insurance claims to ensure patients receive the optimal amount of coverage from their benefit plans. The easiest way to maximize your dental insurance coverage is by scheduling dental checkups every six months. These treatments receive the greatest percentage of coverage under benefit plans, and they help patients avoid more advanced treatments that receive lower percentages of coverage. If you have questions about your dental insurance coverage, don’t hesitate to ask our Jacksonville dental team for help, or call to schedule a consultation with us.
