At Cornerstone Family Dental, we know the dentist’s office may not be your favorite place. However, by offering fast, safe, and effective procedures and treatments, we strive to create a comfortable and inviting atmosphere for all our patients. Another way we can ease the stress or fear of these appointments is by handling the necessary paperwork that comes with filing dental insurance claims. We understand that it can be difficult trying to understand the complexity of your Blue Cross Blue Shield policy, but fortunately, we have in-office staff who are happy to help. Although we are a BCBS dentist, we can process claims even if we are not within your network. When you call to schedule your appointment, simply let our team know what insurance coverage you have, so we can begin to work on saving you the most money the moment you walk through our doors.
Whether you are purchasing your dental insurance plan individually or through your employer, you can expect every policy to be different. From premiums to annual maximums, you will most likely pay a different amount than your colleague in the next cubicle.
When you arrive for your appointment, it is important that our team review your policy to determine how much of your service will be covered. Although policies vary with regard to the amount of coverage, you can expect yours to look similar to the following:
It’s important to remember that although you are strongly encouraged to visit an in-network dentist, you do not have to. Most insurance companies allow you to choose whomever you’d like to see for your dental health, but there are some caveats.
By choosing an in-network provider like Cornerstone Dental, your BCBS insurance benefits are pre-negotiated. That means, we work with the insurance company to determine the services and cost prior to going “in-network.” This ensures you receive the highest level of care for the lowest cost. It also means that our dental team is most familiar with all the aspects of your plan, including premiums, deductibles, co-pays, and yearly maximums. This is not only beneficial throughout the year but as the year comes to a close, we can better assist you in maximizing your benefits to ensure you get the most out of what you’re paying for each month.
