As this new year begins, so too do your dental insurance benefits at Patriot Family Dental in El Paso, TX. From renewals of existing policies to new ones starting in 2023 – there are many dental insurance benefits available for our patients to take advantage of. But, before you start taking advantage of them all, let’s explore what these benefits offer and the ins and outs of any deductibles that may be associated with them.
How your dental benefits work
Simply put, dental insurance is a financial tool that pays for some or all of the costs associated with preventative, restorative and emergency dental treatments. Along with co-payments and deductibles which vary from plan to plan. Co-payments represent the percentage of each treatment’s cost that you as the patient are responsible for covering out of pocket, where a deductible is a fixed amount required prior to any coverage being available from your policy provider.
At Patriot Family Dental we understand how important it is for our patients to get coverage for their regular preventative care like cleanings and checkups as well as necessary treatments like fillings or more advanced procedures like implants or root canals. That’s why we offer a broad range of services designed to accommodate almost any health plan our patients currently have – or will have during 2023.
Why does insurance renew every year?
So why does your insurance need to renew on an annual basis? Every year health plans adjust their premiums and often update the types of coverage they provide – so it’s important to keep updated on this information so you don’t miss out on new benefits available under your policy. Plus, there could be changes in monthly premiums or prerequisites that must be met prior to certain treatments being covered without out-of-pocket costs on your part. Faulty filings can also lead to added complexity when filing a claim for reimbursement – leaving you stuck paying most if not all dental repair costs yourself.
