Understanding How Dental Insurance Works

While all dental insurance plans differ, there are a few key terms that you’ll need to know in order to understand most policies. These include:

  • Premium- The premium is the monthly or annual amount that you pay for benefits.
  • Deductible- The deductible is the amount of money that your insurance company requires you to pay out-of-pocket before your benefits kick-in.
  • Maximum- The maximum is a capped-off amount that your insurance company will pay out for your dental treatments over the course of a year.

Another helpful piece of information is that most dental insurance plans renew every year on January 1st, meaning your deductible and maximum will reset and your premium may change.

What Does My Dental Insurance Cover?

Again, we like to emphasize that all dental insurance policies vary, so in order to determine whether yours will cover a specific treatment, it’s best to contact them directly. That being said, some companies determine coverage for procedures based on a 100-80-50 structure. This means that they cover 100 percent of the cost of preventive care, like checkups and cleanings, 80 percent of basic treatments like cavity fillings, and 50 percent of more serious procedures, like root canal therapy.
