We Accept Dental Insurance Plans in Shelby Township

Millions of people choose dentists that accept insurance as a way to reduce their out-of-pocket dental costs. Many employers offer dental insurance as part of their benefits package; however, some employers offer more benefits than others. That’s why two patients may have the same insurance company yet pay different costs for the same service. Patients should also know that the total fee remains their responsibility regardless of insurance.

Understanding the Benefits of Your Dental Insurance Plan

If you’ve declared, “I need to find a dentist in Shelby Township by insurance,” you also might be unsure about what coverage your plan provides. While we’re happy to assist you at our practice, we recommend that some details be discussed with your provider. Here are some questions to ask when speaking with your insurance company:

  • What are my plan’s annual minimum and maximum benefits?
  • Is there a waiting period before I can undergo treatment?
  • Does my plan have a missing teeth clause?
  • What is your policy on pre-authorizations?
  • Will my insurance cover Invisalign®?
  • Is there coverage for dental implants or cosmetic treatment?
  • How many times can I see my dentist?
  • Are co-pays or visit fees required?
  • Does the plan cover high-quality materials?
  • How can I find out which dentist takes my insurance?

During your quest to find a dentist that accepts insurance, you may also need to determine what type of insurance plan you have. Dental plans are usually available in two major types: PPO and HMO. Seeing a dentist that accepts PPO insurance usually requires a co-pay at each visit; however, you’ll have more flexibility when choosing a dentist that meets your needs. With a HMO plan, you must choose a dentist that accepts HMO insurance from a pre-approved list. HMO plans typically offer lower premiums than PPO plans.

It’s also important to remember that even if you are able to find a dentist in Shelby Township by insurance, your plan may not cover the entire cost of care. We understand that an expected dental expense can have an impact on your family’s budget – that’s why we offer flexible financing to our patients. With a dental payment plan, the total cost of care may become more manageable. Give us a call for more details.
