In an INCREDIBLE read (linked below) from Dr Nicholas Goetz at Ocean Breeze Prosthodontics, he so wisely sums up 6 REASONS WHY CHOOSING AN OUT-OF-NETWORK DENTIST IS GOOD FOR YOU! Well, we all know picking a dentist means a lot more than choosing a person who’s going to repair a cavity, or clean your teeth. It means choosing someone who will take care of your entire oral health- an essential, integral part of your whole body well-being. So why is choosing an out-of network good for you? Here are 6 main reasons:
Freedom of choice vs being limited by your dental insurance…
The main benefit of opting for an out-of-network dentist is that you are free to choose the doctor you feel most comfortable with.
When you value your oral health, you don’t want to choose a dentist from a very limited list of names. You certainly don’t want to make a hasty decision. Not only because you would like to get the best professional treatments, but also because you want to feel in safe hands.
The choices you have on the list of in- network providers are much more limited than those out- of- network. Typically, you will choose a dentist after talking to your friends or family, or by doing a little research on the web. Online reviews and word-of-mouth will surely help you find a reliable dentist. And most often you will be able to find this dentist out-of-network.
Your insurance is still accepted – No, really it is!
“Out-of -network “does not mean no insurance accepted. On the contrary, most out -of -network offices do accept many different insurance plans, so long as they are PPO plans.
PPO plans allow you to choose both in-network and out–of- network providers. Most insurance companies offer these Preferred Provider Organization plans to give insurers more flexibility.
The possibility of choosing out –of- network, and the reimbursement benefits are part of these PPO plans. This means that if you choose an out -of-network dentist who accepts your insurance plan, you can still get coverage and benefits.
The difference is that you will have to pay upfront at the time of service. In these fee-for-service dental offices, the staff can file the claim, and help you with the reimbursement process. This way you can choose the dentist you want, and get your money reimbursed to your home.
Payments vary according to the nature of the treatments you get. Preventative services are usually covered up to 80% or even 100%, while restorative or cosmetic treatments have lower coverage.
