Keep reading to learn more about coverage through Dr. Julovich, your insurance dentist in Zionsville.
How Dental Insurance Works
Most dental insurance plans fully cover two checkups and cleanings along with a set of x-rays each year. The details of your coverage should be laid out under your plan description. Contact your insurance provider or your company’s human resources department to learn more about your specific plan.
Preventive dental care is crucial to continued health and wellbeing, so make sure you are taking full advantage of your investment in dental insurance by scheduling a checkup and cleaning every six months.
During this regular appointment, we will rid your teeth and gums of the plaque and tartar that cause decay and infection. Gum disease prevention couldn’t be more important for your oral and systemic health. The condition is the leading cause of tooth loss in older adults -- and it has also been linked to serious heart problems, respiratory issues, and even pregnancy complications. Staying on top of your preventive dental care is a great way to protect your overall health for years to come.
Important Terms to Know
Understanding your dental insurance can be a headache. From deductibles to maximums and various networks, it feels like there are so many terms and requirements to understand. We have put together a small list of key insurance terms to make things a little easier.
- In-network: A dentist who has come to an agreement with the insurance provider to offer services at a certain discounted rate.
- Out-of-network: A dentist who is not obligated to offer discounted care.
- Premium: The fixed amount of money you pay (usually monthly) in exchange for your insurance coverage.
- Deductible: The amount of money you must pay out-of-pocket before your insurance will take effect. Preventive care is usually automatically covered and falls outside of this deductible.
- Annual maximum: The highest amount of money your dental insurance will pay for your care after you meet your deductible.
