Understanding How Dental Insurance Works
In order to understand how your dental insurance plan works, it’s important to commit some key terms to memory, including:
- Deductible: The deductible is a set amount of money determined by your dental insurance company that you’re required to pay out-of-pocket before your benefits kick-in.
- Maximum: The maximum is a capped-off amount that your insurance will pay out to cover your treatments over the course of a year.
- Premium: The premium is the monthly or annual amount that you pay in order to receive benefits.
What Does My Dental Insurance Cover?
Not all insurance plans apply the same coverage across dental treatments, which is why you’ll need to reach out to your provider directly to learn whether you’ll be required to pay an out-of-pocket cost for a procedure. That being said, many plans determine their coverage based on a 100-80-50 model, which means they cover 100 percent of the cost of preventive visits like checkups and cleanings, 80 percent of basic treatments like tooth-colored fillings, and 50 percent of more costly or invasive procedures like root canal therapy or tooth extractions.
