We Accept Dental Insurance Plans in East Detroit

If lowering your out-of-pocket dental expenses is your goal, it may be necessary to find a dentist in East Detroit by insurance. Dental insurance is typically provided by employers, who work alongside the insurance company to determine coverage. However, some employers offer more coverage than others – that’s why two patients with the same insurance provider can pay different costs for services. Plus, the patient is responsible for the entire balance regardless of his or her insurance coverage.

Where Can I See a Dentist Near Me Who Accepts My Insurance?

At our office, we’re here to help you find a financial solution regardless of your insurance plan. Our practice is within the network of multiple insurance providers, and we work with every patient to ensure he or she receives maximum coverage. When you’ve said to yourself, “I don’t know how to use my dental insurance with a dentist in East Detroit,” contact our office for more information. We’ll help you find a solution that meets your financial and dental health needs.

What Should I Ask My Insurance Provider?

Learning about the details of your plan is essential when trying to find a dentist in East Detroit by insurance. Our staff members are happy to review the details of your plan; however, some details are better explained by your insurance provider. Here are a few questions to ask when contacting the insurance company:

  • What are the deductible limits?
  • Does my plan include minimum and maximum benefits?
  • How can I find out which dentist takes my insurance?
  • What is the policy on pre-authorizations?
  • Does my insurance cover Invisalign®?
  • Does my plan cover dental implants and cosmetic treatment?
  • Are there visit fees or co-pays?
  • Is there a limit to how many times I can see a dentist?
  • Does my plan have a missing teeth clause?

You also may need to determine whether your insurance plan is considered HMO or PPO when investigating your coverage. Each type of plan has distinct advantages and drawbacks. For instance, seeing a dentist that accepts HMO insurance usually involves lower premiums, but you’ll have to choose a dentist from a pre-approved list. PPO plans usually offer more options when selecting a provider, but you’ll often need to provide a co-pay when seeing a dentist that accepts PPO insurance.

Remember, you may still have outstanding charges even after your insurance coverage is applied. Flexible financing can be an excellent option for patients on a budget, as it allows you to re-pay the balance over multiple installments. Give us a call for more details.
