Dental Insurance FAQs
Everyone has a different dental insurance plan. However, there are several common questions patients may have about their payment and insurance in our Cary, NC dental office:
Why aren’t all my dental treatments covered by insurance?
Dental insurance is a money benefit applied by an employer and based on the amount of the monthly premium cost. The patient, employer, and the insurance company agree on the coverage which can sometimes only cover a portion of a treatment’s cost. If you have a claim, you may discuss it with your workplace or your insurance carrier.
What if my insurance plan covers 100% of some dental procedures?
Insurance carriers apply 100% of an allowed amount to some procedures. However, if your dental treatment costs more than the allowed amount, there will be a leftover balance. Contact the Human Resource Department or Employee Benefits Coordinator at your workplace to help you understand the details of your plan.
What are insurance allowed amounts?
Allowed payments are often also referred to as UCR payments (Usual, Customary, and Reasonable). These are amounts agreed upon between the insurance company and your employer. Allowed payments are based on geographical location as well as the cost to your employer. UCR payments are often less than what dentists in your area will charge for a dental procedure.
For example, some insurance plans allow 100% coverage for biannual dental cleanings at their allowed amount. Additionally, some insurance plans apply your deductible to preventive services. Different types of dental services may not fall under the allowed amount.
