We Welcome Dental Insurance
At Neil W Vanik, DDS PA, we are happy to accept dental insurance because we want our patients to have access to our unparalleled services at reasonable rates. If you have dental insurance, you can take advantage of your benefits the most by focusing on prevention. Your routine checkup and cleaning appointment is a powerful method for keeping your smile healthy and avoiding expensive oral problems in the future.
Understanding How Dental Insurance Works
Dental insurance can be confusing if you’re unfamiliar with it. Basically, when you visit our Annapolis dental office, we gather your insurance information and file claims for the services you receive from us. Before you leave, we collect whatever fees are not covered by insurance, and then we receive the rest from your insurance when the claims are processed.
By and large, dental insurance companies emphasize the importance of preventing oral problems or at least catching them early on to keep them from becoming more complex and expensive to treat later.
What Your Dental Insurance Plan Covers
Each plan’s specific benefits can vary, but, in general, dental insurance has benefits that are similar to the following:
- 100 percent coverage for preventive care (e.g., dental cleanings and exams)
- 70 to 80 percent coverage for minor restorative care (e.g., tooth-colored fillings)
- 50 percent coverage for major restorative care (e.g., dental crowns)
If you need help interpreting your insurance benefits, our team can lend a hand. We have experience dealing with insurance and can provide insight for getting the most bang for your buck.
Our In-Network PPO Dental Insurance Providers
What does it mean to be in-network? Well, this term basically means that we have agreed to accept a certain rate for services, and your dental insurance company passes the savings on to you. As a result, choosing an in-network dental provider, like Neil W Vanik, DDS PA, can help you save significant money! However, even if we are out of network for your dental insurance, we know some strategies to get you the most value out of your benefits.
