Will my insurance cover my treatment?
Like many of us, you probably have more questions than answers when it comes to your dental insurance coverage. At Malcolm George Dentistry, we know that figuring out the details of your plan’s specific coverage, the list of procedures included, and the portion you’re responsible for can seem overwhelming.
We understand! Since there are no blanket answers, it's difficult to know for sure what’s covered without breaking down the terms of your plan.
Treatments covered by dental insurance vary widely and depend on your insurance company and your individual plan. In general, many policies cover the cost of preventive services like routine dental exams, professional cleanings, and x-rays (as needed) for you and your family.
The rates for simple and complex dental procedures also differ from one policy to the next. Depending on your coverage, you may be responsible for some portion of the cost of preventive treatments. However, we'll be happy to submit a pre-authorization for your specific treatment and help determine what your responsibility is before we begin treatment.
If you have questions about coverage for specific treatments or about your policy in general, please don’t hesitate to contact our Portland dental office. We’ll be happy to help find the information you need to make informed decisions about your dental treatment.
