Happy New Year from Doyle Orthodontics! January is a major time for insurance as new plans begin, old ones end, and so forth. As a parent, it’s important to make sure that your child has access to quality orthodontic care. If you’re starting a new year and are looking for help with insurance, here are a few things to consider:
Check with your employer: Many employer-sponsored health insurance plans include coverage for pediatric care should you choose a family plan. If you have employer-sponsored insurance, check with your human resources department to see what your plan covers.
Explore the options: If your employer doesn’t offer dental coverage, or if you don’t have employer-sponsored insurance, there are other options available. You can purchase a standalone dental insurance policy, or you may be able to enroll in a government-sponsored program such as Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).
Look for a plan that meets your needs: When comparing dental insurance plans, be sure to consider factors such as the monthly premium, deductible, and copayment amounts. You’ll also want to make sure that the plan covers the types of services that your child may need, such as cleanings, fillings, and extractions.
Consider a dental savings plan: If you’re unable to find a traditional dental insurance plan that meets your needs, you may want to consider a dental savings plan. These plans allow you to pay a yearly fee in exchange for discounted rates on dental services.
By doing your research and exploring all of your options, you can find a pediatric dental insurance plan that meets your family’s needs and budget.
