Lincoln Dental Clinics: Dental Insurance

We accept most dental insurance policies. While your dental insurance policy is an agreement between you and your insurance company, our helpful team will gladly prepare and submit your claims for you. At your first appointment or whenever your insurance changes, our team will call on your insurance limitations as a courtesy to let you know an estimate of what insurance will and will not cover. Unfortunately, some insurance companies exclude information, so it is important to be familiar with your individual insurance plan. We will gladly give you an estimate for your dental treatment; however you are financially responsible for any amount left over if insurance pays less than what was estimated.Dental insurance is a great help when paying for treatment; however dental insurance will rarely cover a procedure 100%. We have payment options available that make paying for your estimated portion of treatment easier. If you are unable to pay for the amount insurance will not cover at the time of your appointment, we also have dental payment plans available to you as well that can be arranged prior to treatment.

We will submit to any dental insurance you have, but below are some of the most common dental insurances we submit to:

Dental Payment Plans and important facts about insurance benefits

Important Facts About Insurance Benefits

Part of our commitment to you is providing the high-quality dental care. We also value helping you plan dental goals that will result in strong teeth and healthy gums. We offer family dental care for all of Lincoln, and we want to help your family get the most of your dental insurance. By using the coverage that entitles you to good oral health, you can receive the maximum insurance coverage to which your family is entitled. By learning about the following benefits, you can ensure affordable dentistry for your whole family.

1. How is dental insurance different from medical insurance?
Dental insurance often works very differently from medical insurance. Dental insurance will usually help pay for a portion of your dental treatment, but will rarely cover 100% if you have extensive treatment needs.

2. What is the “coverage year” for my dental insurance plan?
Many with dental insurance do not realize that their plans cover a certain dollar amount annually. This period is usually January to December. Consequently, some patients are not scheduling for dental treatment they need because they do not realize insurance benefits for each year cannot be carried over to the next year. In other words, you lose whatever you don’t use by the end of the year.

3. What is the “maximum amount” on my dental insurance?
Each year, there is a maximum coverage cost your insurance is willing to pay. Yearly maximums usually vary from $500 to $2,000. It is critical for you, the patient, to know what this amount is. If you aren’t sure, you can call your insurance company.

4. What is a deductible?
A deductible is the amount you are responsible for paying before your insurance pays for any treatment. Your deductible usually excludes preventive cleanings and exams.

5. What is the “effective date” in my insurance plan?
This is the date your coverage goes into effect. Knowing the effective date of coverage is important because it coincides with any waiting periods on treatment.

6. What is a “waiting period” in my insurance plan?
A waiting period is the amount of time you must wait before receiving full coverage for treatment. Knowing the waiting period for certain procedures is important so you can determine your out-of-pocket expenses. For example, if a patient needs a crown, but there is a 12-month waiting period, the patient’s out of pocket expense would be 100% of the cost.

7. How does dental insurance cover my treatment?
Every dental procedure is covered at a certain percentage. Procedures are broken down into categories called Preventive, Basic and Major Care.

8. How can I calculate my out of pocket expenses?
Our office will provide and send claims to your insurance carrier. Once the insurance company gets back to us, we’ll give you an estimate of the cost of the treatment. Any balance due after insurance pays will become your responsibility. Dental insurance, unlike medical insurance, usually only covers a portion of your treatment.

Don’t Rely Solely On Your Insurance Plan

Be careful not to make decisions about your dental care based on what your insurance will cover. At the end of the day, your health is most important. Insurance companies aren’t looking out for your well-being. Finally, the least expensive option is not always a great choice. Unfortunately, your dental coverage is not based on what you need or what is recommended for optimal dental health. It is based simply on the limitations of your insurance plan, which can be tough to navigate.

It is important to understand what your dental insurance will cover. Being aware of the amount for which you are responsible will help you avoid surprises on your dental bill. Every dental plan has limitations. These limitations likely will not cover all of your dental care needs. Northstar exists to serve you with exceptional dental care. If you are concerned or have questions about your dental insurance, don’t hesitate to give us a call. We have many different options available to give you the dental care you deserve.
