Since Texas Dentistry is an in-network provider for most major PPO dental insurance plans, those with dental insurance have reason to celebrate. By accepting most PPO plans, we can provide our exceptional dental treatments at a rate that is truly affordable. Our dental team can help you get the most out of your coverage and save money on out-of-pocket costs, regardless of what kind of dental insurance you have or the provider. We’ll file claims on your behalf so you can save time after your appointment, not just money!
Upon your first visit, we’ll make sure to gather all of your insurance information. Once your appointment is complete, we’ll perform an overview of the care you received, file all necessary claims, and collect any payments on treatments not covered by your insurance. Next, we’ll get the claims processed and make sure to receive the rest of your payment from the insurance company. The team members are highly experienced in working with dental insurance, so feel free to ask any questions you have about your coverage. We always want to make our patients feel comfortable during the visit, especially as we process your insurance.
Dental insurance companies offer a large array of plans and benefits, which is incredibly common in that industry. Unfortunately, this can make it difficult to know exactly what’s covered and what is not. With that said, there are some patterns that can be safely assumed when it comes to dental treatments. One of the most common forms of care that is widely covered is preventive care, mainly because basic cleanings and checkups (on top of at-home oral care) offer the most effective solutions for preventing serious issues from developing. At the very least, they can catch them early, making treatment easier. Overall, dental insurance companies cover care by the following guidelines:
Keep in mind that most dental plans will not cover treatments that aren’t deemed medically necessary, including cosmetic procedures. However, they may partially cover services like Invisalign, which offer both cosmetic and medical benefits. Our team will sit down with you to determine exactly what is and what is not covered by your insurance policy.
Many people aren’t sure what it means to be “in-network.” To summarize, being in-network means that our dental office has agreed to specific rates set by insurance companies for dental services. Via these rates, we’re able to pass these savings on to you, the patient! If we are not in-network with your insurance, that’s ok. Our team is experienced in working with your insurance provider to maximize all potential benefits to the fullest. Feel free to give our Mesquite dental office a call if you aren’t sure if you’re in-network. We are more than prepared and glad to answer any questions you have about your coverage or future treatment.
