To Our Patients
During the past decade, dental benefit plans have become part of health care planning for many families.
The range of benefits depends solely on what the purchaser wishes to offer employees or members. Based on the premium dollar paid per person, plans may cover as little as 10% or as much as 80% of dental services. Some plans exclude certain types of services, while other plans will cover a full range of dental services. The decision of how much to spend and what services will be covered rests solely with your employer and the insurance carrier.
As the number of patients covered by dental plans has increased, certain assumptions have become common, but are not necessarily true. Let us clarify.
Our fees are based on the disease and condition present in the mouth, the treatment plan selected, and the time it takes to provide the necessary dental care. We do not believe it is in either of our best interests for us to compromise the treatment necessary to return you to health in order to accommodate an insurance program's maximum benefits, which may be considerably less than optimal. However, we are more than happy to discuss a treatment plan's advantages and disadvantages with you thereby involving you, rather than your insurance company, in the decision-making process about your health.
The type of treatment you need and receive from our office is based upon the severity of your disease and our professional judgment, and not on whether you are covered by a dental benefit plan. As a courtesy to you, our staff will complete the dental portion of the insurance claim form.
If your dental benefit plan requests a "predetermination" or "prior authorization" we will submit a treatment plan form comparision by your insurance carrier. Remember that their review only compares the treatment plan with what your premium payment purchased. The insurance carrier does not care if you are sick, or how soon you get well. Theirs is a FINANCIAL INTEREST, not a health related one, so they cannot make this decision for you. In fact, the longer they take to review a claim, the longer they can refrain from paying on the premium your employer paid for you. Since insurers make a profit by leaving your premiums invested in their stock and money market funds, ONLY the insurer benefits from a delay in the treatment decision. The financial obligation for dental treatment is between you and our office. The insurance company is responsible to you and not to our office.
If you receive a communication from your insurance carrier suggesting that our fee is over and above the usual and customary rate for the services provided to you, please do not accept this as true. The insurance carrier's reimbursement is determined solely by the amount of premium dollar paid by your employer. Lower premium payments result in lower reimbursements: higher premiums result in higher reimbursements.
If, after our discussion, you believe that the dental benefits provided by your plan are inadequate, you may want to discuss the matter with your employer, union, or association, so that appropriate alternatives can be investigated.
Our office staff will help you as much as possible in completing claim forms, handling insurance questions, processing follow-up concerns,lost claims, etc. No question is too small for you to ask, whether it is about your treatment, benefit plan, or statement. Stop in, or call, any time you have a question.
