Your insurance plan probably lists “in-network” providers, that is, providers who have specifically contracted with the insurance company. But you aren’t limited to only using providers in the network. You can also choose to see an “out-of-network” provider.
Seeing an out-of-network provider actually has a few advantages. We aren’t limited by the rules of the insurance company. Often, in-network providers must follow specific guidelines set by the insurance company regarding number of visits and treatments they can offer. But who do you want making decisions about your dental health? You and your dentist? Or your insurance company? We can still bill your insurance company and they will still cover treatment; you may have a slightly higher out-of-pocket cost, however.
We are happy to discuss your benefits with you and explain your covered procedures and out-of-pocket costs so that you can make the decision that is right for you and your family.
