Is my insurance going to cover this service?
As you may have guessed, dental insurance coverage can be a confusing topic for the average person. Coverage for dental services varies widely from one insurance company and policy to the next, and there really is no easy way to answer this question without more information about your specific policy and insurance provider.
Generally speaking, most insurance policies we’ve worked with at our Chesapeake dental office cover the cost of preventive services like professional cleanings, routine dental exams, and x-rays for you and your children. However, depending on your policy, you may be responsible for a portion of the cost of these treatments. In most cases, dental insurance does not cover cosmetic dental treatments like veneers and teeth whitening.
Our team has extensive experience working with different types of insurance, and we will make it as easy as possible for you to get treatment. If you have a question about a specific service, we will be happy to submit a pre-authorization request to your insurance provider to see if the procedure is likely to be covered under your policy.
We want you to be fully informed about your out-of-pocket expenses before we begin any type of treatment. Please don’t hesitate to contact our Chesapeake dental office if you have questions, and a friendly member of our team will be happy to help you get the answers you need.
