Medical Benefit Plan
It is essential for patients covered by medical insurance to check with their carrier to see if the procedure is considered medically necessary. Many insurance plans will only cover surgeries deemed medically necessary, so patients may be responsible for the total cost of the procedure if it does not meet the eligibility requirements.
Dental Insurance Plan
Your dental plan may provide coverage for some types of oral surgery, but this will vary based on the procedure and your plan provisions. Patients should check with their dental insurer to see if the necessary procedure is covered. Sometimes, dental health plans are more likely to cover services if you are referred to an oral surgeon by your general dentist.
How to Determine Your Out-of-Pocket Costs
You may find it helpful to contact your insurance carrier to ask about your insurance coverage. Our office staff can also help you determine the out-of-pocket cost and provide a pre-treatment estimate so you can decide how to finance your oral surgery.
If your insurance company doesn’t cover the cost of oral surgery, you will be required to pay yourself. Some plans may have a deductible that must be met before coverage kicks in. Others may require patients to pay a coinsurance amount after the deductible has been met.
What if I have questions about my insurance or billing?
If you have questions about insurance or billing, contact our office. Our staff can help you understand your specific insurance coverage and what to expect in billing. We can also answer any questions you have about the surgery itself.
Your insurance company may also be able to provide you with more information about coverage and billing. But ultimately, it is essential that you feel comfortable and confident with your decision before proceeding with any surgery.
