It’s wise to find a dentist in Abingdon by insurance to decrease your out-of-pocket dental expenses. Most Americans with dental insurance receive coverage through their employer. Often, the employer will arrange to cover a portion of each employee’s care costs, but this commitment varies by employer. This can cause patients to have very different dental expenses, even if they have the same insurance and receive the same care. Whatever your dental insurance coverage, be aware that you are responsible for your total dental costs.

What Information Do I Need From My Dental Plan?
Asking yourself, “Is there a dentist near me who accepts my insurance?” doesn’t provide you with all the information you need to know about your plan. In fact, understanding your plan’s ins and outs can help you make the most of your coverage. While our team members are available to answer your questions about how to find a dentist in Abingdon by insurance, your insurance provider should answer more detailed questions such as:
- How many times can I visit the dentist?
- Which dentist takes my insurance?
- Do I need to be assigned to a primary dentist?
- What is my requirement for pre-authorizations?
- Do I need to wait before undergoing a procedure?
- What are the deductible limits?
- Are co-pays required?
- Do I have annual minimum and maximum benefits?
- Is Invisalign® covered by my plan?
- Does my insurance cover dental implants?
- Are cosmetic or orthodontic options covered in my plan?
- What provisions do I have for high-quality materials?
- Does my plan have a clause for missing teeth?
Most dental plans are either PPO or HMO plans, and you should know which category your plan falls within. If you have a PPO, you pay a percentage of your care costs, so out-of-pocket expenses are slightly unpredictable. The benefit of a PPO is that you have flexibility when choosing a dentist that accepts PPO insurance. With an HMO, many preventative services are covered, so out-of-pocket expenses are more predictable. When you choose a dentist that accepts HMO insurance, you usually have fewer provider options.
Dental insurance can be confusing, so we strive to help you receive maximum coverage for your care. Whatever insurance plan you have, you should expect to have some out-of-pocket expenses. If those unexpected costs occur, you may have access to flexible financing plans that can help you to manage your costs.
