Dental Insurance – Lancaster, TX
Putting Affordable Dental Care Within Reach
Some dental services are more costly than others, but in many cases dental insurance will help you keep your out-of-pocket costs to a minimum. Our doctors understand that many patients worry about paying for their dental care, which is why our practice is ready to work alongside your dental insurance carrier so that you can maximize your benefits. If you have questions about your own insurance plan, you can call our office and speak with our helpful staff.
Understanding How Dental Insurance Works
Like with medical insurance, you (or your employer) pays a monthly premium as part of your dental plan. However, medical insurance typically focuses on providing coverage when you have a serious health issue that needs to be treated, like an illness or injury. Dental insurance, on the other hand, is largely meant to help you pay for preventive care so that you can avoid severe oral health issues altogether; your plan can still help pay for treatment, but you’ll typically receive less coverage for more complex or costly services. Thus, if you want to get the most out of your insurance, you need to focus on preventive care.
What Your Dental Insurance Plan Covers
Different insurance carriers will vary in the level of coverage they provide for specific dental treatments; most companies will also offer multiple plans, and the one you or your employer chooses will affect the benefits you’re entitled to later. Generally, though, you can expect 80 to 100 percent coverage for preventive services such as checkups, 70 to 80 percent coverage for fillings and other minor restorations, and 50 percent coverage for major treatments such as crown placement. You should confirm your benefits and the amount you’ll pay out of pocket before you agree to any dental service. Our team can help with this process!
