How Dental Insurance Works
Dental insurance plans can vary somewhat from one another, but most follow a few basic guidelines. For example, the majority of dental insurance benefits expire each year and they do not typically roll over from one year to the next. In other words, you must use the benefits you pay for or they will become obsolete.
What is the Difference Between Dental & Medical Insurance?
The difference between dental and medical insurance mimics the difference between these two disciplines. Think about when you typically go to see your family physician—it’s when you’re not feeling well or when you have a health problem. In this case, the treatment you receive is almost always reactive. Dentistry, on the other hand, is designed to be proactive. That’s why your dentist in Oak Cliff wants you to maintain regularly scheduled dental checkups at least every six months. With this consistency, Dr. Peramala can help you avoid serious dental and oral health problems.
In-Network Vs. Out of Network
Dr. Peramala is in-network with several dental insurance carriers. But even if she is not part of your network, she is still committed to your oral health. We will always provide the treatment you need, and we’ll be happy to help you file claims to your dental insurance company.
At Hampton Dental, we are in-network with:
- Delta Dental
- United Healthcare
- United Concordia
- Blue Cross Blue Shield
Out of Network
If Dr. Peramala is not in-network on your plan, then you still might want to consider making our office your dental home. Our fees reflect the going rate, so even your out of network coverage can still be affordable. Check the website of your benefits provider. There will likely be information there that explains the difference between in-network and out of network expenses. Of course, you can always call our office staff to help you know up front what your out-of-pocket cost will be for any given procedure.
