Dental Insurance Coverage - What Do You Really Need?

Aug 18, 2007
Whilst it is very important to have a dental insurance coverage plan, it's wise to be careful about what you decide to choose to buy.

Of the many dental insurance companies out there, there really are some great deals that you can take advantage of, but you need to check exactly what you are getting or you might have a nasty shock. There is nothing worse in any insurance, than thinking that you have cover and then finding out that you missed something in all that small print.

In fact, one major benefit of some insurance companies is that the dental insurance coverage they provide is very carefully spelt out in simple language so that there is no room for mistake. that suits the insurer, because they get a lot less hassle and a good reputation.

And in those cases, they are able to build a better business, because word of mouth from satisfied clients means that the dental insurance coverage they offer, without too many complaints, provided what was expected.

Of course there are dental insurance coverage plans that have all the bells and whistles, including all the costs from your dentist completely. And that dentist could be the very one you chose too.

In other cases, you might have to use a dentist that the company choose, which might even mean quite a journey and even a dentist that you don't really like or, worse, trust with your dental work. Maybe, for some people a small price to pay a little more to get peace of mind.

It's also possible that the dental insurance coverage provided by 'list' dentists that some companies require, pays for all their services fully, but only pays for selected services from those dentists you choose, so it's vital to be very clear about what you get for what you pay.

There's another thing about the level of cover you get.

Depending on the company and the dental insurance coverage, there are different ways for the dentist to receive payment. It could be that the work is done, the dentist bills the dental insurance company and gets paid direct. In some other arrangements, you could get billed first and then claim it back, which can seriously affect your cash flow for a while.

And finally, the dental insurance coverage might be in between the two in terms of the type of coverage that you get. The premiums may well be reduced for those that use the dentists on the list provided by the insurance company.

So, all in all it's really important to check out the small print (or find a dental insurance company that only has easy to understand terms), so that you understand exactly what you are getting in the dental insurance coverage you are buying.
