Dental insurance is a great thing if you have it, but it can be confusing to understand your benefits. The team at Alder Trails Dental is always here to help you understand your plan. Today, we’re covering some of the basics of dental insurance.

How Does Dental Insurance Work?

Dental insurance plans are almost always built based on a relationship between your employer and the insurance company that they’ve selected. Your employer works with the insurance company to figure out the amount that their plan will pay, and what services will be covered and to what extent. That is why every dental insurance plan is different.

What You Should Know About Your Plan

You’ll want to know exactly what is covered by your dental plan. That’s what you’re paying for, after all! Your employer should be able to provide a general overview, or you can call your providers. When it comes to specific procedures that you’re having done with us, we’re always happy to help you determine how much coverage you’ll get. It is also important to understand factors like your yearly maximum, and your deductible, if you have one.
