Dental Insurance

take dentist insurance

Dental insurance is a contract between typically an employer/covered entity and the dental insurance company.  Benefits are based on a contractual obligation between the two parties and determined by zip codes.  A patient’s coverage is solely based on that contract.  Patients have no control over coverage they may receive.

Dental insurance companies also solicit to dentists to become “participating providers” by signing a contract with them to provide dental services.  Dentists that sign a contract with insurance companies are contracted with them and must abide by the specifics set out by the agreement.  What a patient may receive in treatment is based on the specifics of the contract.   

Dr. William H. Miller is not a contracted provider for ANY insurance company.  He has not signed a contract with any dental insurance company that may influence  treatment with a patient.  He listens and works with his patients in developing dental treatment plans. 

At this time our office is happy to file your insurance provided we have correct information from the patient.  A patient may also option to receive a receipt for paid services and file their own claim as well.  Regardless, of how the claim may be filed, the PATIENT WILL RECEIVE BENEFITS DIRECTLY FROM THE INSURANCE COMPANY. 

Our office does not accept insurance assignments.  Therefore, services are paid to our office at time of service by the patient and the patient receives payment from the insurance company.

Some Facts:

  • Please note that if you have any dental PPO insurance coverage you still may have services completed within our office.
  • If you have HMO/DHMO coverage they will not pay for any services within our office.
  • Dental insurance is very different from typical medical insurance coverage.  It is basically a pre-payment arrangement between an employer and an insurance contractor.  For some services, they may pay as much as 100% but only 30% for other procedures.  (This is based on the contract between your employer and the insurance company.)
  • Please remember that insurance companies are a “for profit” entity and their purpose is for “cost containment”.
  • Many insurance companies have maximum limits of $1,000 to $1,500 per year.  The maximum insurance coverage in 1959-1965 was $1,000 per year.  Based on inflation alone, dental insurance maximums per year should be at least $7,000 to $8,000 per year!
