Our team at Grand Dental – Lockport is pleased to work closely with Aetna, providing patients with a more affordable way to receive the dental care they need. As an Aetna dentist in Lockport, we strive to make our services accessible so that individuals do not feel as if they must choose between better oral health or buying groceries for the week. Our partnership as an in-network dentist for various insurers allows us to keep costs low when it comes to certain treatments (i.e., preventive and restorative). Patients who have questions about eligibility or level of coverage are invited to call us today.
Many individuals are unaware that the majority of dental insurance companies design their plans based on a 100-80-50 system. When reviewing a particular plan, the premium, annual maximum, deductible, and co-pays may be different, but the same breakdown of coverage levels remains largely the same.
It is not uncommon to see the following when reviewing a dental insurance plan:
Being proactive about oral healthcare will serve to positively impact a person’s smile and wallet simply because these services are covered partially or in full. Apart from being able to keep smiles healthy year-round, taking advantage of the immense savings for these two appointments allows individuals to avoid serious oral health problems later on.
As a patient of Grand Dental – Lockport, the only way to take advantage of these kinds of benefits is to choose to see an in-network dentist. This allows them to pre-negotiate fees and services to more easily lower expenses. However, if a patient’s dental insurance company is not someone we are in-network with, we will still provide exceptional dental care but will require the patient to pay the remaining fee from the dentist as well as the insurance company at the time services are rendered.
