Understanding the ins and outs of dental insurance can be very frustrating. Trying to figure what is covered and at what percentage can become very overwhelming! Our office can take the stress and headaches out of decoding your United Healthcare dental insurance. As a United Healthcare dentist, our staff has a deep understanding of these plans and can make sure you maximize your benefits.
As an in-network United Healthcare dental provider, covered dental services will be billed and paid according to your provider plan. This means that if you are a member of United Healthcare, our office will offer a lower copay than one which is out-of-network. Our experienced financial coordinator is happy to file your claims with United Healthcare on your behalf, and will work closely with them to ensure everything is taken care of.
Each dental plan is a bit different. Even those issued by the same company can have some nuances. But what is consistent from plan to plan is that those benefits expire at the end of the calendar year. If you have dental PPO insurance, we can check your insurance company’s coverage and help you get the most out of those benefits. You paid for your insurance, and it would be a shame if you didn’t get the full benefit of your plan.
United Healthcare member’s benefits coverage will vary regarding deductibles, set negotiated fees, annual maximums, and coverage. We see most covered services look something like the following with coverage allotments.
Also, important to note is that if you have United Healthcare dental coverage, it is important that you choose an in-network dentist. Using an office like ours offers you even more savings and benefits. Going to a provider not in the United Healthcare network means you are seeing an out-of-network dentist, and you will pay more in out-of-pocket expenses.
When you have coverage with United Healthcare, you are eligible to receive two exams and two cleanings as part of your basic coverage covered by your dental insurance company. Our twice-yearly appointments are the foundation of good oral health for you and your family. Visiting your family dentist twice a year allows Dr. Feng to monitor your oral health and spot problems sooner rather than later.
Being proactive in proper oral hygiene prevents unwanted dental problems like tooth decay, gum (periodontal) disease, or other major dental problems. Take an active role in preventative dental care so you may minimize the need for out-of-pocket costs for restorative dental work.
We understand some may have a “To Do” list that is a mile long and that you have very little time to do it. At Sloan Creek Dental, we have tailored our dental office to cater to people like you. If you have other family members accompanying you, we gladly combine appointments into a single visit and provide treatment the same day as the exam when possible. Pain? Emergency? We will make every effort to see you when you need it. Life is busy, so we make it easy to fit an appointment around your schedule.
An estimate isn’t always necessary, but it is prudent if the treatment or procedure you need is costly. The office can partner with your insurance company for pre-clearance, which can give you a better idea of how much your portion of the bill will be. Having this knowledge will allow you to better prepare for your treatment and determine payment options.
It is incredibly frustrating to have benefits and not use everything your plan allows. Our office has deep knowledge of dental plans and can help make sure that doesn’t happen to you. Here are a few ways we can make sure that you get the full benefits of your plan.
