How Dental Insurance Works
No two dental insurance plans are exactly the same. Even if you receive benefits through your employer, you and your coworkers may have different coverage depending on specific plan elections. In most cases, PPO benefit plans offer the following coverage:
- 100% preventive care covered
- Minor restorative care around 70%-80% covered
- Major restorative care around 50%
What is the Difference Between Dental Insurance & Medical Insurance?
Dental benefit plans are flexible, offering patients the opportunity to choose their ideal provider, and they focus on coverage to keep patients’ smiles healthy. Medical insurance has more restrictions on which physicians patients can visit, and rather than prevention, coverage is geared towards treatment for emergencies and chronic illnesses.
In-Network VS Out of Network Dentistry
We are happy to accept both in-network and out of network PPO dental insurance benefits in our Pittsburgh dental office. Whether or not your insurer is one of our in-network plans, we will do our utmost to ensure you have the lowest out of pocket treatment costs.
In-Network Insurance Plans
Even though patients have the flexibility to choose an in-network or out of network dental team, visiting an in-network dentist may offer some benefits. Significantly, in-network dental teams are more familiar with the coverage available from specific treatment plans. We also have existing agreements in place to charge fees within a price range set by your insurer. This ensures you only ever need to pay the out of pocket percentage of the costs of dental treatment. We offer in-network benefits for a number of plans, including:
- United Concordia
- UPMC Advantage
- Delta Dental
Out of Network Insurance Plans
We are also happy to accept other dental insurance plans. While we don’t have standing agreements with these insurers to charge fees within their set price range, our affordable treatment options almost always fall with the insurer’s set pricing. If you’re concerned about your coverage or feel the fees are too high, please don’t hesitate to talk to our team. We’ll do our utmost to help you better understand your treatment pricing and find the best solution to meet your needs and fit your budgets.
