No matter the type of dental insurance plan, you are expected to pay a monthly premium. Whether you’re provided this coverage through your employer or you pay for it on your own, this monthly payment allows you to access your insurance coverage should problems arise with your oral health.
Preventive care will always work to your advantage, helping you to keep your costs low. But, as we all know, not all problems can be prevented, which is why dental insurance is important and beneficial. Once you’ve reached your annual deductible, you are eligible to use the annual allotment to pay for other forms of dental treatment.
While each policy is different, your coverage may include:
As an in-network provider, Dr. Angela Courtney has negotiated costs and services with United Healthcare to ensure you receive the highest level of quality care for a lower cost.
It is important that you take advantage of your dental insurance coverage. Why? Because each year, you lose any unused benefits. Your annual deductible is based on a calendar year, so if you have not met your annual allowance, you will not be reimbursed. Should you need treatment, let us review your policy to determine how you can get the most out of your benefits. If necessary, we will stretch your treatments out over the course of several calendar years to help you and your budget.
