Making the most of dental insurance benefits is important to ensure our patients receive the dentistry services they need at a price that fits their budgets. In addition to processing and filing dental insurance claims for most major PPO benefit plans, we are happy to provide in-network coverage for many plans, like Cigna dental insurance. If you have Cigna or any other PPO dental insurance plan, give our team a call to find out more or schedule an appointment in our Allentown dental office. We’ll be happy to walk you through your benefit plan. We know that insurance policies can sound like a string of random words when you don’t work with them regularly. That’s why the Tomko Dental Associates team is here to help.
Every Cigna dental benefit plan is a unique contract between insurers, patients, and/or their employers. That means we will need to review your unique policy before we can provide accurate estimates of your insurance coverage and out of pocket treatment costs. However, we recommend patients make the most of their dental insurance coverage by visiting us at least every six months for dental checkups. These preventive appointments are typically covered between 80 to 100% by dental insurance plans, and visiting the dentist regularly is the best way to maintain optimal oral health. In addition to preventive care, most Cigna dental insurance plans offer the following coverage:
As in-network dental insurance providers, we have a standing agreement to charge fees for dental services as outlined by Cigna. That means you will only be responsible for the out of pocket percentage of your treatment costs. Out of network dentists can charge higher fees for service, but you will be responsible for the difference in price as well as your out of pocket percentage of treatment cost. In most cases, any differences in pricing are minimal, but with an in-network dentist, you won’t have this concern.
If you don’t have traditional dental insurance coverage, we are happy to offer an in-house dental benefit plan. This low cost plan allows you to receive all of your necessary preventive dental care at no additional cost as well as receiving discounts on all other services, even those not covered by traditional dental benefit plans.
At the time of service, we do ask that patients pay the out of pocket cost of their dental treatment plan. We accept payment in cash, check, or credit card. For those who want to extend the payment of their dental care out over several months, we are happy to work with CareCredit to provide low and no interest financing plans. This third party financier offers a variety of financing options to make even the most advanced dental treatments more affordable.
