Why Isn’t My Benefit Plan listed?
While we do work with every dental benefit plan, and we work very hard to get the benefits our patients deserve, there are only a few which we are “in network” with. We have made a commitment to you- the patient. Our commitment is to treat each patient fairly and not compromise care based on dental benefit reimbursement.
Dental benefit plans are quite different than Medical insurance. Medical insurance has high premiums to cover thousands of different treatments and procedures while Dental plans have significantly lower premiums to supplement the twice-a-year cleanings and exams as well as the handful of fillings and extractions, crowns and bridges, etc. Dental benefits have an average cap of $1000 per year while Medical insurance does not. Dental benefits almost always get used right up to the max every year. This is typically not the case when it comes to Medical insurance and pretty much all other insurances. Insurance companies profit off of a percentage of people not using their insurance. With dental benefits there is a limited profit margin for the insurance companies since the premiums are so low. Therefore, they then limit the dental benefits they provide which makes the “premium vs. benefits” they pay out a close wash.
If a dental plan in any way limits your choices , or forces us to cut corners, you will not see them on our list of participating plans. Simply put, we do not and will not cut corners. We here at Niagara Dental Implant & Oral Surgery are sure that you understand this firm stance we have taken to optimize your care.
