How Does Dental Insurance Work?
If there’s anything you need to know about dental insurance, it’s that plans are focused on prevention more than anything. This is a stark contrast from medical insurance, where benefits are designed to help patients treat specific ailments. Dental insurance focuses on helping people pay for the most basic care, including checkups, cleanings and other minor problems that can be taken care of quickly. Dental insurance also helps you avoid larger issues altogether.
What Do Dental Insurance Plans Cover?
Different dental insurance plans offer coverage in different ways, however, most follow a similar framework. That framework tends to look like the following:
- Preventive services are covered between 80 and 100 percent.
- Basic restorative services offer coverage between 70 and 80 percent.
- Advanced restorative services are covered up to 50 percent.
- A fixed amount is set aside for orthodontic treatments.
- Cosmetic services are not typically given any coverage.
The best way to save money is to keep up with biannual checkups and cleanings. Not only do most plans cover these treatments, but you also reduce your risk for dental emergencies!
