We Accept Dental Insurance Plans in Abington

Dental work can be expensive, especially if you need major work. If you don’t have dental insurance through your employer, you might have to purchase it yourself. Whatever type of insurance you have, it helps to know a few things to make sure that your dental plan matches your needs. If you’re wondering, “Is there a dentist near me who accepts my insurance?” please contact our dental office today.

If you are asking yourself, “Will I ever figure out how to use my dental insurance with a dentist in Abington?” please contact our office. Our friendly staff is here to help.

What Are the Benefits of Dental Insurance?

Most dental insurance plans are designed to encourage preventative treatment. Most plans will pay the full cost for services like routine cleanings and checkups. Tooth restoration services, such as fillings or periodontal cleanings, are often covered up to 80 percent. More extensive procedures, such as dental implants and crowns, usually don’t have as much coverage. The amount will vary according to the details of your plan. Some other things to consider when you’re looking into your coverage include:

  • Your deductible. How much are you expected to pay before your insurance takes over?
  • Waiting periods. Is there an amount of time you have to wait before you can receive certain types of dental work?
  • Visit limitations. Is there a cap on the number of times you can visit the dentist each year?
  • Cosmetic coverage. Does the insurance plan cover teeth whitening or Invisalign®?
  • Copay. How much are you expected to pay for each visit?
  • Pre-authorizations. Do you need to get permission from the insurance company before getting dental work?
  • Approved dentist. Your insurance company will be able to answer the question, “Which dentist takes my insurance?”

Additionally, if you have missing teeth that you’re hoping to address, check with your plan to see whether they have a lost-tooth clause.

Another important aspect of any dental insurance plan is its type. Is it a preferred provider organization (PPO) or a health maintenance organization (HMO) plan? When you visit a dentist that accepts HMO insurance, you often have a small or no copay for routine treatment. However, you exchange a low price for a more limited selection of service providers. If you visit a dentist that accepts PPO insurance, you typically have greater choice when it comes to selecting a dentist; however, the costs of your care may not be covered until you meet your deductible.
