FAQs – Insurance
How does dental insurance work?
Dealing with insurance companies can be confusing, time consuming and frustrating. We do a lot to make sure paying for your dental care is as simple as possible.
Before your first appointment, we’ll contact your insurance provider to find out what’s covered and what isn’t. This helps us determine your personal financial responsibility.
We also submit all claims on your behalf, however you are still responsible for your share including any co-pays upon delivery of dental services. Once we receive payment from your insurance carrier, we’ll send you a statement for any uncollected portion or disburse a check for any over-collected funds.
We accept out-of-network benefits from these carriers:
- Care First Blue Cross Blue Shield
- Delta Dental
- Mutual of Omaha
- and many more…
The best way to find out about your plan’s out-of-network benefits is to refer to your statement of benefits or contact your insurance company directly. It’s definitely worth a call or a visit to their website. Usually the most common procedures like exams, radiographs, and cleanings are still covered at 100%.
Note: Care First Blue Cross Blue Shield and Delta Dental require patients to pay the full amount at the time of their visit and apply for reimbursement later.
