When you have a family, dental bills can add up quickly. Semi-annual checkups and cleanings for everyone are expensive. However, if your children have cavities or need braces, the cost may eat up a large chunk of your budget. People with dental insurance benefits from their employer don’t have to worry each time they visit a dentist because they know that their plan will lower their out-of-pocket expenses. Plans vary in both out-of-pocket expenses and benefits since these depend on the arrangement the employer made with the insurance company.
If you ask your dental insurance company, “How can I find a dentist near me who accepts my insurance?” they will provide you with a directory of dental providers in your neighborhood. To take advantage of your benefits, finding the answer to, “which dentist takes my insurance” is vital. At Sunrise Center for Dental Specialties, we accept various insurance plans, and for your convenience, we will submit claims on your behalf. Contact our office to see we can provide this service for you.
You will need to find a dentist in Plantation by insurance type, since there are HMO plans and PPO plans. PPO plans offer significant savings if you use a dentist that accepts PPO insurance in their network, but you still can still select a non-network dentist. With an HMO plan, you will only have coverage if you choose a primary dentist that accepts HMO insurance within the plan’s network. Call us at (954) 699-0865 to see if we accept your PPO or HMO plan.
While we see our patients pay a portion of their employer-provided dental insurance, they still ask us, “Can you explain how to use my dental insurance with a dentist in Plantation?” Deductibles, co-pays and coinsurance, which are out-of-pocket costs, can be confusing for dental patients. When you need answers to the following questions, contact your benefits administrator or refer to your explanation of benefits:
If you have any unanswered questions, please contact us. Our office staff can ask for a predetermination of benefits if you want to be sure a procedure is covered.
Understanding your dental plan is one of the best things that you can do to protect your oral health. We see our patients avoid certain covered treatments because they are afraid that they are not covered. At Sunrise Center for Dental Specialties, we believe that a dentist that takes insurance has a duty to ensure our patients know about covered preventative and diagnostic treatment that can protect their dental health.
