Insurance FAQ

What’s the benefit of dental insurance coverage?

Treatment that is recommended by a dentist, is listed on the fee schedule and accepted under the terms of your group’s plan.

What’s an optional treatment?

An optional treatment is a treatment that is either not listed on your fee schedule, or one that costs more than the minimum to restore the tooth back to its original function.

What’s the difference between indemnity, PPO, HMO, & discount insurance plans?

An indemnity or Traditional Insurance reimburses members or dentists at the dentist’s UCR (Usual, Customary & Reasonable fee). This allows the subscriber to go to any dental office without being limited to a panel.

PPO

(Preferred Provider Organization) is the most common form of insurance. They provide members with a list of participating dentists to choose from. The dentists on this list have agreed to a lower fee schedule, which provides you with greater cost savings. They also assist with insurance billing. Most insurance companies pay 50% on major treatment (crowns, bridges, partials), 80% for basic care (fillings), and up to 100% for preventative care (exams, x-rays, basic cleanings). Annual maximums generally range from $1,000 to $2,000.
