Things to Know About Insurance
Dental insurance can be a great tool for those of us with mild to moderate dental needs. About two-thirds of Americans have access to dental care. Most dental insurance companies provide two free dental cleanings and exams and then cover a portion of restorative dentistry treatments. Additionally, you’ll pay monthly premiums and most insurance companies only provide patients between $1,000 and $1,500 a year.
At North Oaks Dental, we help patients file their insurance claims and followup with providers.
Here are some other important points you need to know about dental insurance:
- You’ll likely still need to pay for much of your treatments, especially if you need extensive dental work.
- Insurance companies do not cover all treatments. It possible that they will cover orthodontics and even some implant procedures, but it’s best to check with them in advance.
- If you do not use your annual allotment of money, it doesn’t carry over into the next year. Your insurance company will not offer you a pay-out either. The money goes back to their bottom line. This is one of the biggest problems with dental insurance. Most dental insurance companies operate on a calendar year, so if you have dental insurance dollars left over after Dec. 31, you won’t see that money again.
If you’re relying on dental insurance, then you should schedule your second visit of the year if you haven’t already.
Use Affordable Financing Options
In some cases, dental insurance will not cover all of your procedure … and maybe you need more extensive dental work and don’t want to clear out your bank account. It’s true that some dental procedures like getting dental implants or a full-mouth reconstruction can be expensive. But this is your health we’re talking about. A better smile will make you feel better and look better.
To help patients cover dental bills, we’re carrying CareCredit and Lending Club, two programs that let you break up your dental bill into affordable monthly payments. In fact, you can often receive zero-interest financing. We’ve helped countless patients get the smile they need using these lending services.
