Your Dentist in Lenexa Accepts Insurance
If you and your family are covered by a dental insurance plan, you pay a considerable amount every month for those benefits. Visiting the dentist regularly will help to ensure that you get the most out of your investment. Unlike with medical insurance, you can visit an out of network provider without paying much -- or sometimes any -- more money. As your dentist in Lenexa, Dr. James Craig and his team will work with your insurance to help you get the most bang for your buck! Keep reading to find out how we work with dental insurance plans for the benefit of your healthy smile.
How We Handle Insurance
Our office is not specifically in-network with any dental insurance providers. However, no matter who your provider is, if you have a PPO (preferred provider organization) plan, we can accept your insurance. We begin by performing a verification of benefits, when we call the insurance provider to find out the details of your coverage. Then, we will go about helping you maximize your benefits depending on your unique oral health needs. After you have received care, we will file, process, and follow up on your dental insurance claims to ensure you get the full amount you are owed.
What Is Covered By Dental Insurance?
Most dental insurance plans fully cover preventive treatments, like two checkups and cleanings with one set of X-rays each year. These services help to prevent small issues from developing into large, complex problems later on.
If we do detect a cavity, gum disease, or anything else requiring treatment, your dental insurance should cover up to 80% of basic restorative services and 50% of more complex treatments, like dental crowns, bridges, and other services. Our team of insurance experts will help to ensure you always know what to expect in regards to your coverage.
No Insurance? No Problem!
Even if you don’t have insurance, you can still make it easier for you and your family to afford necessary dental treatments by checking into your financing options. CareCredit is a third party financier that works like a credit card you use specifically for your family’s medical and dental expenses. Simply swipe your CareCredit card at the time you receive treatments and then pay the bill at the predetermined pace that works best for you. Because having access to excellent dental care shouldn’t be affected by your ability to pay for it all at once!
