MetLife Coverage Availability & Fees
The MetLife insurance company offers a wide variety of dental insurance plans; coverage details vary from policy to policy. Some of their plans are HMO in nature, which require participants to see an in-network dentist. Others are PPO plans, which allow you to use your benefits with any licensed dentist. If you have a PPO policy, it is possible that your coverage works something like this:
- Preventive care (cleanings, exams, bitewing X-rays, etc.): 100% covered
- Basic restorative services (fillings, simple extractions, periodontal maintenance, etc.): 70 – 80% covered
- Major restorative services (dentures, crowns, surgical extractions, etc.): 50% covered
Keep in mind as well that your plan may have a deductible, a waiting period before you’re eligible for certain services, and an annual maximum (the most that MetLife will pay out without a calendar year).
You can use your plan to your greatest advantage when you visit an in-network MetLife dentist near Bridgeville, such as Advanced Dental Solutions of Pittsburgh. We are used to working with MetLife and are thus in a great position to help you navigate your coverage. We can even suggest strategies to help you minimize your out of pocket costs. For example, we might be able to schedule major treatments in a way that help you take advantage of multiple annual maximums. Also, since we are in-network, you can expect lower overall out of pocket costs for services.
