Understanding Your Insurance
Your dental plan is designed to share in your dental care costs. It will not cover the total cost of your treatment. Most plans cover between 20 and 80 percent of endodontic services. Sometimes, needed services are not covered at all. We will only recommend treatment according to what is best for you, not according to your insurance benefits.
If You Have Dental Insurance Coverage
For patients who have dental insurance, we will submit any claims for you to your insurance carrier. We require any co-payments and deductibles to be made at the time our services are rendered. In order to do this, we obtain an estimate of the amount your insurance will cover. Your insurance company may set a yearly maximum that they will pay for each patient. This yearly maximum varies from insurance company to insurance company. If you have used a portion of your yearly maximum at your dentist office, the insurance company may not have all of your claims processed so they will report an inaccurate available amount. We have found that some insurance companies do not cover all expected dental services. We will work diligently to ensure that you get the most out of your insurance plan.
