3 Tips To Maximizing Your Dental Insurance

Dental insurance is a great benefit and getting the most out of it for the least amount of money makes it even better. Here are a few tips to help you maximize your dental insurance and also take optimal care of your teeth.

Tip 1 – Stay in network. A quick visit to your insurance provider’s website should supply you with local dentists that are considered in network. This can provide you with significant savings because in network providers can only charge you up to a certain amount that is determined by your insurance company for covered services. With out of network providers, you may be responsible to coverage part of the charges for many dental procedures.

Tip 2 – Communicate with your insurance provider. Don’t hesitate to contact your provider to ask specific questions about your coverage, claims or anything else you are unsure on. Read through the written materials available to you online or in your benefits booklet. Also, never be afraid to dispute charges that you think are incorrect. Many times they are wrong and you can simply have the insurance company correct the error and pay your claim.

Tip 3 - Understand your maximum benefits. Many people aren’t aware that they have yearly limitations to the amount their dental insurance will cover each year. If you know you are planning to have extensive, expensive dental work done, be sure that you have enough coverage left to cover the procedure or you may want to modify your appointment accordingly.
