Dental insurance is an excellent way to lower your out-of-pocket dental health care expenses. Like many Americans, you probably receive your dental insurance through your employer, who has negotiated with your insurance provider the benefits you will receive. Generally speaking, an employer will pay some of the cost of the plan. How much the employer covers depends on your employer, which is why you may pay a different price for the same service as someone else with the exact same dental insurance provider. No matter what your dental insurance plan may be, you are still responsible to see to it that the final bill is paid in full.

Where Can I Learn More About My Benefits?
If you’ve found yourself saying, “I’m not sure how to use my dental insurance with a dentist in Bradenton,” we’re here to help you. Before you use your dental insurance, it’s important to know the benefits that are available to you through your plan. While we can answer some of your questions about finding a dentist that takes insurance, other questions are more suitable for your insurance provider. Here is a selection of questions you may wish to ask your provider in order to learn more about what your plan covers:
- Is there a dentist near me who accepts my insurance?
- What is the company’s policy on pre-authorizations?
- How much are co-pays and visit fees?
- Does my plan cover cosmetic and orthodontic procedures?
- Does my plan cover dental implants?
- Does my plan cover Invisalign®?
- How frequently can I visit the dentist?
- Does my plan cover high-quality materials?
- What is the insurance provider’s policy for missing teeth?
- Is there a required waiting period before having a procedure done by the dentist?
- What are the minimum and maximum benefits allowed per year?
- What are my deductible limits?
You will also need to know if your plan is a PPO or HMO. In most cases, a dentist that accepts PPO insurance will have a co-pay that you need to pay at every visit. The benefit of a PPO is that it offers more flexibility when it comes to choosing your dentist. If you go to a dentist that accepts HMO insurance, you will need to select your dentist from the insurance company’s list of pre-approved dentists. The benefit of HMO insurance is that premiums are often lower than with PPO insurance.
