Do you have dental insurance? If so, we want to remind you that your benefits are set to expire when the ball drops on New Year’s Eve. You pay a lot of money for your plan, so don’t let it go to waste. Plan now to maximize on your investment in your oral health! Your dental insurance should fully cover preventive care and a portion of restorative care, too. Have you been putting off necessary dental care? Act fast and that same day crown in Arlington Heights you’ve been needing could be finished before January 1!
What Dental Insurance Covers
While insurance plans vary based on what you pay as a deductible, who in your family is covered, and what services you select, most plans provide coverage that looks a little something like this:
- Preventive and diagnostic care, 100 percent covered. That includes two checkups and cleanings and a set of x-rays each year.
- Routine restorative care, 80 percent. Fillings, root canals, etc.
- Advanced restorative care, 50 percent. Crowns, bridges, etc.
For treatments that are not fully covered by your dental insurance, you pay the amount due out-of-pocket at the time you receive services. Your in-network dentist then files the claim and receives the full amount later.
Some of the best dental insurance plans cover certain cosmetic treatments or orthodontics, too. Contact your insurer directly to learn the details of your coverage. If your insurance is provided through your employer, you can also discuss benefits with your human resources department.
