Ogden Dentist Video #7:
Do you accept Dental Insurance Plans?
In this video, Dr. Jim Ellis, DDS (a dentist in Ogden, Utah) discusses if their office accepts dental insurance plans.
We have someone hired full-time at the office to deal with dental insurances. There are thousands of dental insurances out there, and what makes it worse is that, each dental insurance will have different levels — a gold, a platinum, and a silver, or whatever they happen to call it, there are many levels within each dental plan.
The number one thing to do is arm yourself with information. Before you go to a dentist office:
- Read through your book.
- Call the insurance company.
- Find out what is covered.
- What is not covered.
- If there is any waiting periods.
- If there is anything they would require information-wise from the dentist office.
- Always go into the dentist office armed with information.
We accept most insurances, and the individual who we have is very, very good in knowing about the different insurance plans and what they do and do not provide. The best thing for you to do is to be armed about your own insurance plan. Educate yourself.
If you find that your insurance plan is not what you think it is, than contact your employer and let them know that you would like to see some changes in it. There are some dental plans out there that are very, very poor and people have no idea until they get to the dentist office and then are told. So please, just inform yourself and find out everything you need to before coming to the office.
