BOGOTA (AP) If you have dental insurance, you’re not at risk of a problem with dental coverage that could lead to a claim against your insurer.
That’s because the federal law requires you to pay a deductible for your dental care even if you have no dental coverage.
That means you may still be charged more for a tooth extracted and filled if you’re insured than if you don’t.
And if you aren’t, you might also be charged for a procedure that might cost a lot less.
“The fact that you’re being charged the amount of the service that you are getting, the amount that you expect to pay for that, is something that has a significant impact on your decision to go ahead and take a trip,” said Sarah Fiske, senior vice president at Aetna, which covers nearly two-thirds of the country’s dental plan holders.
“There are a lot of factors that you have to consider when you’re making a dental visit, and the deductibles that are on the table could be very significant.”
The deductible is a percentage of the cost of the dental procedure.
The more you pay, the less likely you are to be able to get the services you need for a given condition.
That may not seem like a huge difference when you look at it from a financial standpoint, but dental care can be costly.
That is because there are a variety of factors you need to consider to figure out how much you will have to pay, including your income and how much health care you need, the type of treatment you need and whether you’re using a high-tech or less-advanced method of filling your mouth.
And even when you are insured, the deductible may not be the same for everyone.
If you get a preventive care appointment that isn’t covered under your policy, the insurer may be responsible for your deductible, too.
If a dental checkup or dental check comes up positive, the doctor or dentist can get a bill from the insurance company and the deductible could be higher than the cost.
But if there are no problems, you don�t have to worry about that.
The deductible for dental care generally ranges from $600 to $1,200.
Some insurers offer dental coverage for less.
If the deductible is more than the insurance premium, the cost is deducted from your paychecks and then sent to your bank account.
If it’s less than the premium, your insurer may also be responsible.
In most cases, you will get a payment from the insurer, but if you get more than you pay for a dental procedure, you could be responsible, too, Fiskes said.
You can also get the same amount of care at the same time.
“If you have a chronic condition and the amount is lower than the deductible, you can pay for the treatment that you need,” Fiskel said.
Some health plans have different rules about how much dental care is covered and how it is billed.
If your plan does not include dental coverage, you have the option of going to a doctor, dentist or other provider to have your teeth extracted and fill.
If there is no insurance coverage, there is usually no charge for that.
And some health plans, including Aeta, require you to be at least 21 years old to have a dentist visit.
But Fiskell said that some insurance companies do not include that requirement in their policies.
For example, Aetrahealth plans cover dental procedures but not dental visits.
Aetana has dental coverage but does not charge a deductible.
The amount that the dental check-up is charged depends on your plan and your state.
And Aetanas website provides information on the dental benefits of aetnas dental plans.
The average deductible for a dentist checkup is about $1.25 per visit.
If that is more, the dentist can charge you more, Fisel said.
That might mean a lower payment than the doctor would charge you for a preventive checkup.
And in some cases, the bill is deducted and sent to the bank account, which can be a big deal.
If Aetans dental plans don’t cover dental visits, they will usually send you a bill for the cost plus a $300 deductible, Fislke said.
And, if you choose not to go to the dentist, you may have to go with another provider who does.
The reason the dental plan won’t cover your dental checkups is because your insurer will be responsible if there is an issue.
“You have to do what you have done before, so the dentist doesn’t know you had an issue with the service,” Fischke said, explaining why it’s so important to check with your insurer before you decide to have an appointment.
“Your insurer has a responsibility for ensuring that you aren�t going to go under the knife again.”
