Many of our patients with dental insurance have their coverage as part of a benefits package sponsored by their employer. The contract their employer has with the insurance company determines their coverage and co-pays. Therefore, we see patients who pay different amounts for the dental services that we provide. If you have searched for, “a dentist near me who accepts my insurance,” you may pay more or less than our other patients who have dental insurance through the same carrier. You should understand that ultimately, you are responsible for your entire bill if your insurance denies your claim or only pays for part of the costs.
When you need to find a dentist in Virginia Beach by insurance, you should consider finding a dentist close to your home or your job, or if you have children on your plan, you may want to find a dentist that takes insurance near their school. Our office, which treats people of all ages, partners with numerous insurance companies, so call us to see if yours is one of them. If so, we can arrange a convenient appointment for you.
When you ask, “Where can I find dentist near me who accepts my insurance,” your dental insurance provider should have provided you with a list of network dentists. With an HMO plan, you have to select a dentist that accepts HMO insurance from the list of providers in the network. Most likely, you won’t have any coverage when you visit a non-network provider. If you have a PPO plan, you have more leeway when searching for a dentist that accepts PPO insurance.
Your employer is not always the best resource for information about your dental benefits. You should get the answers to the following questions directly from your dental insurance provider:
Our team will also help you with questions about your coverage. We can ask for a pre-authorization or predetermination of benefits, which will verify your coverage and provide you with an estimate of your out-of-pocket expenses.
At Konikoff Dental Associates General Booth, we’re committed to making our patients partners in their own healthcare by providing them with treatment options whenever possible. Our dentist will explain each option and patiently answer any questions you have, including questions about what your out-of-pocket expenses would be for each option. If you want to be a full partner in your dental health care, call us today to schedule your initial appointment.
