    Great Savings Ideas - Frequently Asked Questions

    Typical Insurance Questions

    1. How do I find out about my orthodontic benefits?
    2. What is a pre-determination?
    3. What portion of the initial payment does insurance pay?
    4. Why doesn't the insurance pay more?
    5. Whose insurance is primary (filed first) if we have two insurance policies?

    How do I find out about my orthodontic benefits?

    Employees are usually given a booklet from the Personnel Department of their employer. Look under orthodontic coverage under Dental Benefits in your Booklet. If you cannot find the information, ask your company's Personnel Department or call the 800 number on your insurance card.

    If you have a problem or do not understand something, bring the information with you to our office and our staff will help you.

    What is a pre-determination?

    A pre-determination is when the orthodontist submits an insurance form to the insurance company asking them about the coverage for the procedure that will be performed by the orthodontist. This is not a guarantee of payment but an estimate of coverage. This will help you in determining your portion of the bill for treatment.

    What portion of the initial payment does insurance pay?

    Insurance companies usually pay 50 percent of the down payment and monthly charges as they occur, until your maximum lifetime benefit is reached. The insurance company does not pay your lifetime maximum up front.

    The company will usually pay only $750 ($1,500 x 50 percent) of the down payment, thus you will need to pay the other 50 percent or $750. The insurance company will continue to pay 50 percent of the bill until your $1000 coverage is expended and the rest of the balance is yours to pay.

    Why doesn't my insurance pay more?

    Good Question! The purpose of insurance is to cover large bills that bust your budget. If you totaled your car, you would not buy an automobile insurance policy that gave you 25 percent of the cost of your car.

    The insurance company should cover at least 75 percent of the cost, but it does not! The only way this will improve is to ask your employer to improve the coverage. If you and others in your company write to your employer and ask for higher coverage, your company will notice.

    Whose insurance is primary (filed first) if we have two insurance policies?

    The order of filing is determined by which parent’s birth date is first in the calendar year.

    Once the first insurance is returned, the second is sent out with the response of the first to the second insurance company.
