Medical insurance is designed to help patients treat a health problem, while dental insurance tends to focus on enabling patients to prevent dental issues from developing in the first place. This is why most policies offer their highest level of coverage for services like checkups and cleanings. You can still use dental insurance to offset the costs of restorative treatments like crowns and fillings, but the coverage will be lower.
Most dental insurance plans have a benefits structure that looks something like this:
So, one easy way to save as much as possible with your insurance is to use it to mostly pay for your checkups and cleanings. This approach will not only keep your out-of-pocket costs low, but it will also go a long way in helping you avoid more serious dental issues (as well as the more expensive procedures necessary to treat them).
Heck Family Dentistry of Lawrence is in-network with Delta Dental Premier and BlueCross/BlueShield, which means we’re able to offer the highest level of savings and quickest reimbursement possible for patients with these policies. We’re able to work with several other plans as well, so if you get your dental coverage from another provider, go ahead and contact our team, and we’ll discuss how much we can help you save.
