Dental Insurance in Springfield MO
Dental insurance works very similar to health insurance. You typically pay a monthly premium and are then entitled to certain dental benefits usually including regular checkups, cleanings, x-rays and services to promote general health. While most plans provide these benefits, provide coverage much differently. Most companies put covered services into there categories: Preventative, Minor, Major. Every company is different on how they categorize. It is really important to look thoroughly look over policy benefits before you sign up for a plan.
Missouri has two different provider types that includes Indemnity plans and then also managed care plans. With an indemnity plan, you must pay up front and the carrier reimburses you at a later date. Managed-care plans typically maintain dental provider networks. For example, only certain dentists in Springfield, Missouri would contract with a Managed Care Plan. With this type of plan, dentists participating in network agree to perform services at pre-negotiated prices. Generally, you will have lower out of pocket costs and not have to worry about paperwork. With the indemnity, you will have a broader choice of dentists.
Most plans have waiting periods for both minor and major services. These waiting periods can range anywhere from 6 to 12 months. There are a few policies that don’t have waiting periods. When purchasing a policy, make sure to ask about what kind of waiting period the policy has. Sometimes although changing plans may be cheaper, you might be faced with a lengthy waiting period for a variety of services. At Millennium Brokers, we offer plans that don't have waiting periods for either Minor or Major services.
