Understanding How Dental Insurance Works
Not all dental insurance plans are the same, but in order to understand most, you’ll need to commit a few words to memory:
- Premium: The premium is the annual or monthly rate you pay to receive dental benefits.
- Maximum: The maximum is a capped-off amount of money that your dental insurance company will pay for your treatments over the course of the calendar year.
- Deductible: The deductible is an amount of money that your insurance company will require you to pay out-of-pocket before they begin covering any treatments you receive.
- In-Network: If a dentist is in-network, it means that they’ve negotiated discounted rates and fees with your insurance company to help you save money.
What Your Dental Insurance Plan Covers
It’s important to keep in mind that no two dental insurance plans offer the same exact coverage, so to find out whether they will cover a certain treatment, it’s a good idea to contact them directly. The average insurance plan uses a 100/80/50 structure to determine coverage. This means that they cover 100 percent of the cost of preventive dental care, like checkups and cleanings, 80 percent of more basic treatments, like fillings, and 50 percent of more serious procedures, like tooth extractions.
