UnitedHealthcare – Fort Lauderdale, FL
Enjoy Affordable Dental Care
Besides brushing and flossing your teeth at home, you know you’re supposed to visit your dentist at least twice a year for a cleaning and checkup, but you don’t always schedule your appointments. If you’re worried about a large bill, you don’t have anything to fear because you have dental insurance. Now, you can get the comprehensive coverage you need without breaking the bank by choosing a UnitedHealthcare dentist. At Seaside Family Dentistry, Dr. Friedland is here to help you achieve your dream smile while staying within your budget.
UnitedHealthcare Coverage Availability & Fees
People often believe you don’t need to see your dentist until after a problem occurs, but this isn’t true. Although you may think you’re saving money, you’re actually increasing your dental expenses. Routine care allows Dr. Friedland to monitor your oral health to reduce the risk of preventable issues, like tooth decay and gum disease. This lowers your overall dental costs. In fact, every $1 spent on prevention can save you $8 to $50 on emergency and restorative care.
UnitedHealthcare makes it easy and affordable to visit your dentist. By paying your monthly premiums, you have access to a comprehensive dental plan to keep your smile healthy. You’re also given a yearly allowance to use toward restoring your oral health after paying your annual deductible.
Depending on your specific policy, your coverage may include:
- 100% preventive care
- 80% minor restorative care
- 50% major restorative care
To make the most of your coverage, it’s recommended you visit an in-network dentist, like Dr. Friedland. He has pre-negotiated rates with your insurance carrier to reduce the amount you need to pay out-of-pocket. If you’re out-of-network, he will also help you maximize your benefits to keep your care affordable. If you’ve reached your annual limit, he’ll work with you, even if you need to split the costs across calendar years.
With less than 3% of Americans meeting or exceeding their annual allowance, we don’t want to see anything stand in your way of using your policy. We’ll work on your behalf with your insurance carrier to maximize your annual policy while giving you one less thing to worry about.
