At 1st Family Dental, we believe surprises can be wonderful, but not when it comes to your dental insurance coverage. That’s why we are happy to pre-verify your insurance benefits before your first visit. Our insurance experts will be able to confirm with you what coverage is estimated for any services or treatments recommended by your dentist.
Dental insurance policies can sometimes be confusing. Our insurance experts are trained in helping you to maximize your benefits, and to help you understand how your coverage policy works. If you are thinking about obtaining dental insurance coverage, or would like to learn more about the plan you have, we offer a helpful consumer guide on how to shop for insurance coverage and understand more about insurance coverage.
At 1st Family Dental we believe you deserve great dental care, whether or not you have dental insurance. If you will be using insurance coverage, our staff will pre-verify your coverage, and explain to you what we expect your insurance benefits will cover. Dental insurance benefits are provided in each policy as an estimate of coverage. There are a variety of factors that can influence the level that each insurance policy will actually cover once a service has been provided, such as previous procedures of the same type, waiting periods, medical necessity, pre-authorization requirements, and internal reasons know only to the dental insurance provider. We will do our very best to ensure you have the best possible understanding of how your particular insurance coverage works prior to beginning any treatment, including what we estimate your insurance will cover, and what the cost of the procedure may be if your insurance either does not cover the procedure or does so at a lower rate than expected. Our financial policies state that patients are responsible for any remaining balance that is not covered by insurance. If we receive an estimate of benefits that is different than expected, our insurance experts will follow up with your insurance provider to ensure we have done everything possible to maximize your benefits. We will also provide you with information to help you understand your coverage results and help you to communicate with your provider in any way we can. If you will not be using insurance coverage, we offer payment plans and other financial options to help make your dental care fit your budget. Payment for services will be based on the option you choose.
