A good dental insurance plan can make the quality dental care you need more affordable. Since we don’t want you to worry about breaking the bank for your dental care, we consider insurance to be an extremely important part of Long Family Dental, which is why we accept many of the leading insurance providers. Our team member Jacey and Julie have been working with us since 2001, and they have a lot of experience helping patients get the most out of their insurance plans; you can call them today with your policy information to start learning more about your insurance plan.
As long as you keep up with the premiums, your dental plan will provide coverage for a wide variety of treatments meant to protect oral health. Most of the time, coverage looks like this:
Medical coverage is mostly used for health problems that have already occurred, but dental insurance is more concerned with stopping health issues from happening in the first place. Paying for preventive care in the present reduces the need for more expensive care in the future; on average, it’s estimated that every $1 you spend on checkups and other forms of preventive care could save you between $8 and $50 on restorative and emergency services, making it the more cost-effective option in the long run.
Both in-network and out-of-network providers are welcome at Long Family Dental. No matter what kind of plan you have, we’ll work with you to maximize your available benefits. Our team members can handle all the claims and paperwork that your insurance carrier requires so that you don’t have to waste time stressing out about it instead of enjoying your smile.
In-network providers are usually highly recommended because they further reduce the amount you have to pay out of pocket thanks to the pre-negotiated rates that the dental office has agreed to beforehand. Long Family Dental is proud to be in-network with:
Of course, you are always free to choose a dentist who is outside of your current network. We are more than happy to accept these plans as well, but it’s important that you understand that your out-of-pocket costs may be higher, as your insurance’s allowable coverage may be higher than our current fees.
Are financial concerns making it hard to pick up the phone and get the care you need? Our team member Monica will be happy to answer questions about your coverage and will explain the best strategy for maximizing your insurance. Your policy doesn’t have to be confusing; we can review the details with you and make sure you understand everything moving forward.
