Navigating coverage and reimbursement for your dental care doesn't have to be a headache. The problem is, for most, their dental plan is a "black box". Specifically, they go to the Dentist, and don't know what to expect when they get to the front desk for billing. There are 5 really simple things that you can find out about your insurance coverage. This will eliminate stress and frustration for you. Further, knowing these things will help you get the most out of dental care!
Knowing a few key details about your dental insurance coverage can make your life easier. You can also ask your Dentist to send pre-determinations to your provider. A pre-determination allows your provider to evaluate a possible claim or expense and notify you about coverage in advance of treatment. Your plan provider may take up to 4-6 weeks to give you a response. In cases where immediate treatment is required, you might not have the luxury of waiting for a pre-determination response. In these cases, it is especially critical to know the basic details surrounding your coverage.
