Dental Insurance – Harlingen, TX

Learning the Ins-and-Outs of Your Policy

Do you find paying for your care to be the most stressful part of each dental visit? Our team at Compassion Dental of Harlingen is here to soothe your worries by helping you better understand your insurance coverage and figure out the best options for maximizing your benefits. The information below will help familiarize you with the basics of insurance. Don’t forget to call your provider directly to learn the exact details of your personal plan.

Understanding How Dental Insurance Works

Stopping oral health problems from developing now can help you avoid a more costly procedure later. That’s why dental insurance plans provide the most coverage for preventive care like checkups and cleanings. Each plan has an annual maximum that allows for a certain amount of coverage each year. There is also a deductible that you’ll have to meet before your insurance carrier is able to pay for anything.

What Your Dental Insurance Plan Covers

The most common coverage structure for dental insurance plans is 100-80-50. This means they pay 100 percent of the cost of preventive care, 80 percent for basic treatments like cavities, and 50 percent for more complex procedures like tooth extractions. (Elective treatments like teeth whitening usually aren’t covered at all.) Every plan can vary, so talk to your provider to confirm what is and isn’t covered under your current policy. One of our staff members can also go over your benefits with you if you call with your policy information.
