We are always happy to hear that our patients have dental insurance. We are even in-network with several major insurance providers, including Humana. As your Humana dentist in Upper Arlington, we sincerely hope you get the most out of your coverage. You can do so by attending biannual preventive appointments in our office and by employing other strategies to maximize your insurance policy’s value. On this page, we’ll go into some details about how you can use your Humana plan to your greatest advantage.
Humana offers a number of different plans, including both PPO and DHMO plans. Of the two types of plans, PPO policies are much more flexible. They allow you to visit any licensed dentist and still use your benefits. However, you’ll experience the greatest savings if you visit an in-network dentist, such as Artistry Smile Center. Not only do we have a contract with Humana that keeps costs low, but we can also offer suggestions to help you truly get the most out of your policy.
Details vary from plan to plan. Humana offers one plan that only provides coverage for preventive care, and another that provides assistance with preventive care and minor restorative work. You can enjoy the most robust coverage if you opt for the Humana Complete Dental Plan, which works something like this:
Keep in mind as well that your plan may include a deductible and an annual maximum. If you require major treatment, we might be able to schedule it across multiple appointments between calendar years so you can use two annual maximums rather than just one.
We never want the financial aspect of your dental treatment to cause you stress. That’s why we make the process of using your insurance easy! We’ll happily answer your questions, verify your coverage, and thoroughly explain how it does or does not apply to certain treatments. We’ll even file claims on your behalf so you don’t have to worry about muddling your way through a bunch of paperwork.
If your insurance policy will leave you responsible for a significant portion of the cost of your treatment, we’ll work with you to help you afford your care. For example, we can help you apply for financing through CareCredit.
