Dental insurance is one of the most beneficial and most misunderstood factors in dental treatment today. Dental insurance is provided through a contract between your employer and a dental insurance company. The terms of your coverage are negotiated between these two organizations and your specific policy is based entirely on their agreements.
Endodontic offices are not involved in determining which dental services are included, the percentage of fees covered or whether a specific service is covered at all. Not all dental treatments are covered by every dental insurance. Some endodontic services are completely excluded. Our desire is to provide you with the highest quality of care but your dental insurance may cover only very basic services. The specific services covered are based on the cost of the insurance policy to your employer and the amount the insurance company is willing to pay.
Dental Insurance for Endodontics
Although endodontics offers superior treatment results, dental insurance places a limit on how much it will pay toward an endodontic fee. Because insurance companies have an annual maximum benefit, coverage of your root canal therapy will be covered according to your specific plan and only up to your annual maximum. Once your annual maximum has been reached, the insurance company will not provide additional benefits for any dental service until the renewal period.
We accept all indemnity insurance plans and any PPO plan. The insurance companies listed below are those we are specifically contracted with and with which we have an agreed upon fee schedule that we follow.
- Aetna PPO
- Cigna PPO
- Delta Dental (All PPO and Premier Plans)
- Guardian PPO
- Anthem Blue Cross Prime, Complete and Dental Blue Plans 100/200/300
- Ameritas PPO
- PacifiCare/United Healthcare HMO
If your company is not listed, we are considered out-of-network and will work to get an estimate from them, based on your benefits, for your estimated co-pay. Sometimes there is not much of a difference between in-network and out-of-network fee schedules. In any case, your referring office sent you here because they knew you would get the best endodontic care there is, so we are willing to help with payment options for your co-pay.
