What You Need to Know About Dental Insurance Benefits
During the past decades, dental benefit plans have become an integral part of healthcare planning for many families. Dental benefit plans are made available to employees or members through companies, unions, and associations, and may vary considerably from one plan to the next.
Your employer has purchased a specific benefit plan from literally hundreds of combinations available. Your company decides how much it wishes to pay for benefits and chooses a plan that tries to meet as many of its employees’ needs as possible. The range of benefits depends on what the purchaser wishes to offer employees or members. Some plans may cover as little as 30 percent or as much as 100 percent of dental services, with most falling in the 50 to 80 percent range. Some plans exclude certain types of services, such as orthodontics, while other plans cover a full range of dental services.
