We understand! Lots of patients are confused about insurance, and we want to make things as easy as possible for each of you.
According to The Levin Group, a dental consulting firm, insurance is fundamentally a contract between your employer and the insurance company. The benefits that you receive are based on the terms of this contract; and the services provided are based on the cost of the policy to your employer and the negotiated arrangements with the insurance company.
At Dr. Harris’s office, our goal is to provide top quality dental care and exceptional service. The goal of the insurance company is to provide only the negotiated benefits for the specifically selected services, so you may find that some of the services that you need or want will not be covered by your insurance plan.
One thing for patients to remember is that each plan has a dollar amount limitation for the year, and once that amount has been reached no other services will be covered by your insurance company. The benefits that you receive from the insurance company have NOTHING to do with you or with achieving a high quality result.
Our office would like to do whatever we can to help you navigate the complexities of dental insurance. Please call us with any questions that you may have!
