Dental insurance can be tricky, so if your child has it please feel free to let us help you determine the coverage you have available to you. Because every plan is different it is important to submit any insurance information you have to us well ahead of your scheduled appointment so that we can go over it ahead of time. It would be best to submit any new or changed insurance information to us at least two days ahead of time or, when you submit your child’s new patient paperwork.
If your child ends up needing treatment service, we will be able to give you a breakdown of roughly what your insurance will cover and how much of the procedure will end up being charged directly to you. It is important to note that our professional services are provided to your child, not to the insurance company. The insurance company’s responsibility also is directly to your child. With that in mind, we will do our best to work directly with the insurance company on your child’s behalf while filing any medical or dental claims.
Understanding Dental Insurance
Dental insurance can often be daunting to understand so we find it is important to provide our patients with a breakdown of basic information about most dental insurance plans. Much like health insurance, most dental insurance providers offer a variety of plans that scale to the needs of the consumer. So while you may have the same dental insurance provider as your co-worker your level of coverage may vary depending on a few factors.
Not all dentists participate in the network of, or accept all, dental insurance networks. A list of some of the insurance networks that we accept is located at the bottom of this page. It is important to note that we accept many dental plans and there is a good chance that we just don’t have yours listed. Give us a call at (503) 644-4749 to find out if we accept your dental insurance.
Some of our clients are covered by more than one dental plan. It is important to note that that amounts paid by both dental plans can’t exceed 100% of your total dental expenses. Benefits that apply to your dependents and vary quite a bit from one plan to another. Make certain to note any special clauses that involve dependents on your plan.
Most dental insurance plans are calculated with a “benefit period” in mind. Typically, a benefit period runs the span of one year. Keep in mind when your benefit period starts and ends so that you can take full advantage of your plan before the period ends and your deductible is reset.
We care for the dental health of your child and want to ensure that you are taking advantage of every benefit that you are entitled to. Give us a call at (503) 644-4749so that we can address and insurance questions you may have about your plan.
