Delta Dental Coverage Availability & Fees
If there’s one thing you should know about dental insurance, it’s that your coverage is designed so that you will take care of your teeth and gums by receiving preventive care. Insurance companies don’t want to pay for expensive procedures caused by poor oral hygiene. This is why your Delta Dental insurance policy will most likely cover 100% of all preventive services, including checkups and cleanings and x-rays.
While it would be nice to think that as long as you maintain your regularly scheduled appointments you won’t experience problems with your oral health, that’s simply not true. When problems arise, your dental insurance benefits will be most beneficial, especially if you’ve met your deductible, as this requires the insurance company to pay more for the services you receive.
Although not all policies are the same, you can expect to be covered 70-80% for minor restorative services and 50-70% for major restorative services. Before you move forward with any type of treatment, it is best to let our team review your policy to ensure you are covered for that particular service.
As an in-network provider for Delta Dental, we have negotiated services and their cost, so you are guaranteed to pay the lowest amount for the highest level of quality dental care. But remember, just because you are encouraged to seek treatment from an in-network dentist doesn’t mean you are obligated to. In fact, if we are considered out-of-network, we will be happy to still assist you in finding ways to save the most money as well as file any necessary claims or paperwork on your behalf.
