This is a question your Glendale dentist deals with often. And our team always tries to ensure that you get the most out of your dental benefits.
However, we do urge you to contact your insurance provider to be sure. We want you to be informed so you can make the best decisions for your smile, financially and healthwise.
Each Case Is Different with Dental Insurance
We always check and verify your dental benefits from the very first phone call. But insurance changes all the time, which is why we urge you to call as well.
We spend a lot of time on the phone with insurance companies, and we're happy to do so. Our aim is to present you with the best estimate possible.
Unfortunately, we are never certain of anything until we submit a claim to the insurance. And even with “pre-authorization,” insurance companies let us know that it is not a guarantee of benefits paid. Sometimes, they send us a blanket “not a benefit / no coverage” letter despite our phone calls and their authorization letter.
Insurance companies have not changed their "maximum yearly benefits" from $1000 to $1500 in decades. But we work with them because it benefits you, and we care about our patients.
Recommendations from Your Glendale Dentist
We recommend sticking with a dental office with insurance company experience like ours. Stick with the honest dental team that will let you know the possibility of things not being covered and the worst-case scenario so that financial surprises are minimized.
