Ah, dental insurance. The good news is you have it. The bad new is… you have it. Most dental insurance plans have a list of their in-network dental providers. If subscribers want to pay less, then they must see a dentist who is in-network on their plan. Thus, dentistry may be more affordable, but the final decision about your dental care may be determined by a faceless entity at the insurance company rather than you and your dentist. Owings Mills dentist Dr. Monica Mattson is not an in-network provider. This means that your insurance will not predict your treatment. Rather, your treatment is based upon Dr. Mattson’s careful evaluation of your dental and oral health. Then the two of you decide upon a treatment plan that works for your budget and schedule.
But I Have Dental Insurance
If you have a dental insurance plan that allows you to choose your dentist, then we’ll be glad to work with you. These types of plans are usually called a PPO, or preferred provider organization. To help our patients receive the maximum allowable benefits for a covered procedure, we will be happy to submit all claims to all insurance companies. We will also estimate the expected benefit payment and then allow you to pay your estimated portion. Once your insurance has paid its allowable amount, you will be responsible for the remaining balance.
Dr. Mattson strongly suggests that you familiarize yourself with the details of your dental plan. For example, how much is your yearly maximum? This is the dollar amount your insurance will pay for your dental work within one year. Typically, this amount renews at the start of a new calendar year, but unused benefits from the previous year do not roll over. Therefore, it is in the best interest of your dental health and your wallet to use all of your benefits within a calendar year.
