How to Use Your Dental Insurance & Save
Dental insurance offers an easy way to make dental care more affordable, but are you getting the most out of your plan? In our experience, many patients understand the need for dental insurance, but they aren’t exactly sure how it works. Thankfully, we’re more than ready to help! At Warwick Dentistry, we welcome all dental insurance plans, and our knowledgeable team will ensure you maximize your benefits at every visit. Below, you’ll find our short guide on how to save as much as possible using your plan.
Understanding How Dental Insurance Works
The primary thing people need to understand about dental insurance is that most plans are focused on helping patients prevent dental problems as opposed to treating them. The idea is that with consistent preventive care, a patient can avoid more severe problems as well as the expensive procedures needed to fix them. The end result is better oral health and less spent on dental care overall, which makes everyone happy. Be sure to keep this in mind as you read on.
What Your Dental Insurance Plan Covers
Expanding on what we just mentioned above, it’s very common for dental insurance plans to mostly or even completely cover basic services like checkups and cleanings. Most allow a person to get two each year for little to nothing out of pocket! But, insurance can also be a big help if you develop a cavity or missing tooth as well. Services like fillings, crowns, bridges, and dentures are usually partially covered, though not to the same degree as checkups and cleanings. And, because they are elective, the majority of cosmetic treatments (like teeth whitening and porcelain veneers) are typically NOT covered.
We Offer In-Network Savings & Welcome Out-of-Network Providers
Warwick Dentistry is in-network with Delta Dental, UPMC, and MetLife, meaning we’re able to offer patients with those policies the highest amount of savings possible. But, patients with plans from other providers can save with us, too, as we’re able to file claims for all out-of-network plans as well. Unlike with medical insurance, going to see an out-of-network dentist won’t always cost you a lot more! To learn how we could use your particular plan at your next appointment, give us a call, and our team will be happy to go over your benefits with you.
