In-Network vs. Out-of-Network

If you read over your dental insurance benefits plan, you will see that there is a list of providers that are in-network on your plan. In-network dentists like Dr. Moreno, Dr. Young and Dr. Pfeiffer will be able to save you money on dentistry for your family. As an in-network dental practice, we have agreed to accept pre-negotiated fees for covered services. These fees are contractual and, therefore, prohibit any additional charges. Once you’ve met your deductible and you’ve given us your co-payment, we cannot bill you anymore.

Dental Insurance 101

While one dental insurance benefits plan may differ somewhat from the next, they do all tend to have a few things in common. First, dental insurance usually has a limit that expires at the end of a calendar year. We track your annual limit and do our best to schedule needed services so that you don’t exceed your insurance plan’s limit.

Another important thing to recognize is that most dental insurance benefits not only come with a limit, but they also expire at the end of the year. This means that if you don’t use some of your benefits, then what remains will not carry over to the next year. In other words, you can use all of your dental benefits or your can lose them. Now, when you consider that you pay a premium to have dental insurance coverage, you should want to use every last cent of your benefits for the sake of your smile and your wallet.

If you have any questions about dental insurance in general or your benefits plan, please call Moreno & Young Dental. Likewise, we can schedule an appointment for you or another member of the family.
