About Dental Insurance in Westfield, NJ
Dental insurance can often be intimidating or outright confusing, but our team here at Dr. Weinman’s office is here to help you every step of the way. All you have to do is remember to bring in your insurance card or claim information to the office; alternatively, we can complete this process over the phone. Our insurance assistant will file your insurance information, provide an accurate estimate of what your plan will cover, and file the claim on your behalf.
How Does Dental Insurance Work?
No two dental insurance policies are alike. For instance, some plans only provide a small percentage of coverage, while others pay out benefits that cover 50% or more of certain procedures. However, in most cases, dental insurance will provide 100% coverage for essential preventive care. This includes biannual checkups and cleanings, annual dental X-rays, and fluoride.
Necessary restorative services (fillings, dental crowns, etc) are usually partially covered, while cosmetic and other elective treatments receive no benefit assistance. If you’re interested in improving the appearance of your smile with teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, or another likeminded procedure, just let Dr. Weinman or a team member know and we can give you plenty of information about third-party financing.
Most insurance benefits are based on fees that are considered “usual” and “reasonable.” These fees may not fully cover the cost of our services here in Westfield, NJ. We are not a run-of-the-mill clinic, and we are proud to offer many high-quality amenities and technologies that keep patients feeling comfortable and at ease. This is why we are not in-network providers for any specific insurance plans. However, we are always happy to help with your insurance-related questions and concerns, and we will be sure to give you the most accurate estimate possible of what your plan will cover before any treatment actually begins. We know that you don’t want an unpleasant surprise!
