When it comes to dental care, one of the most frustrating things for many patients is their insurance coverage. Every benefit plan is different, and it can seem like you never get the coverage you were expecting. If you invest in your dental insurance plan each month, the Woodsprings Family Dentistry team wants to help you maximize the available coverage for these dental insurance plans. If you’re new to the area or looking for a dentistry practice to help you maximize your benefits, give our Jonesboro dentistry practice a call to schedule your first visit with our team. We’ll be happy to review your dental insurance coverage and help you find the right treatments to keep your smile healthy.
Dental insurance plans, like most insurance policies, are complicated legal agreements. Sorting through all the jargon and exclusions can be headache inducing. Our patients never have to worry about wading through their complex polices alone. The Woodsprings Family Dentistry team will be happy to work through your policy with you, answer questions you may have about coverage, and we carefully explain the out of pocket costs associated with treatments. We process and file dental insurance claims for any major dental insurance provider, including:
For your convenience, we will provide an estimate of the out of your pocket cost that is due at the time of service. For advanced procedures, we may recommend filing a preauthorization claim before beginning treatment to avoid any surprise costs.
Want to know the secret to maximizing your dental insurance benefits? It’s easier than you may think. You just need to stay up to date on your preventive dental appointments. These services receive the highest percentage of coverage from your insurance plan. Additionally, they help you prevent damage and decay that require restorative treatments that receive less insurance coverage.
In-network providers have contracts with specific insurance providers. These agreements outline basic fees that will be charged for necessary dental services, and your insurer promises to pay a percentage of these treatments at that price. Out of network providers can charge higher fees than those laid out by the insurer, but you will need to pay the difference in price as well as your percentage of treatment costs. Visiting an in-network dentist is the best way to avoid any additional costs, but the difference in price for out of network treatment is usually negligible.
In addition to processing and filing claims for most plans, we are also in-network providers with the following plans:
