How does dental insurance work? And why is it soooo confusing!
Prior to working as an oral surgeon, I had no idea what insurance really did. I knew that when I was younger I was covered by my parent's insurance, and in school I was covered through my school plan, but I really didn't know what any of that meant. Sometimes I got a small bill compared to what I was charged, and sometimes I got the full bill of what I was charged, what gives! And explaining in-network, out-of-network, estimate of benefits...? It might as well have been written in Greek! If you have ever wondered, please click this link here to get more information. It explains a lot about how dental coverage works and why you shouldn't pull out your hair just yet.
The good news is, our office is In-Network with many major PPO insurances in the state of Maryland as well as Maryland Healthy Smiles and DC Medicaid.
