In our office, many of the services we provide are covered by medical insurance. Whenever possible, we try to obtain medical coverage for impacted third molars and other treatments covered by both types of insurances. This helps us minimize dental insurance claims so that we do not max out the patient’s dental insurance. Most insurance plans and managed care payers have policies that require co-payments at the time of service. There may be specific coverage limitations under an HMO or other managed care plans. We do our best to help our patients interpret their healthcare benefits and coverage requirements. If you have any specific questions, we encourage you to contact our office. We will be more than happy to assist you.
