There are some provisions in a dental insurance policy that are quite common in other types of insurance. For example, a deductible is the amount of money you must first pay out-of-pocket whether the insurance is for your car or your smile.
Similarly, your dental insurance plan probably carries a maximum. This refers to the top dollar amount your dental insurance plan will pay within a calendar year. This way you are less likely to go over the maximum in any given year.
The coinsurance payment is the percentage you must pay for a particular service. This is separate and in addition to the deductible.
If you have any questions about your dental insurance benefits plan, please feel free to call our office. We’ll be glad to help!
