How can dental plans make dental care more affordable?

Dental plans can help you manage your dental care costs better — because the cost of not taking care of your oral health could cost more.

  • People without individual dental coverage are less likely to get routine dental care
  • Waiting until there’s a problem means that dental treatment will often be more involved and expensive
  • Major problems linked to poor oral health (like heart disease and diabetes) are more likely to appear

Frequently Asked Questions

Like health insurance, there are different kinds of dental insurance plans. 2 types are health maintenance organization (HMO) plans and preferred provider organization (PPO) plans.

PPO dental insurance means that you can choose any dentist, in or out of network, and you don’t need a referral. You also have the flexibility to visit dentists and specialists outside of your network, but at a higher cost.

Dental insurance from an HMO comes at a lower cost, but requires that you only visit dentists and specialists that are in network. Dental HMO plans also commonly include copays.

Dental insurance works a lot like health insurance. Each month you pay a premium (a set dollar amount) and when you visit the dentist, you may be responsible to pay a copay, if your plan includes copays. The dentist’s office will bill the insurance company directly for your care. Most preventive dental care visits, which often cover checkups and cleanings, are covered under your dental insurance plan. Your insurance company will pay the dentist directly for your preventive care visits while you are only responsible for your copay, if your plan includes copays.

If you have a dental procedure that is not considered preventive care, the dentist’s office will send your insurance company a bill and, depending on your plan, your dental provider will bill you for the portion of the procedure your insurance company did not cover. You can find which procedures are covered by reviewing your plan details.

Like health insurance, there are a variety of dental insurance plans that offer a range of coverage options. Depending on your family’s needs and your budget, there are several affordable dental options available for you to choose from. To calculate the cost of dental insurance for you and your family, first identify your specific needs and then choose a plan that meets those needs.

Yes, you can buy dental insurance without health insurance. When you purchase a health insurance plan, it doesn’t automatically include dental coverage. Dental insurance is separate from health insurance.

The term “full coverage” can mean different things to different people. For some, “full coverage” means a dental plan that covers basic preventive services, such as routine checkups, cleanings and X-rays. Others expect a full-coverage dental plan to reduce the cost of any dental service they may need, such as crowns and root canals. The good news is that Growers Choice has a range of dental plans, so you can find the coverage that best fits your needs.

Every dental insurance plan is different. A deductible is the amount you pay before your insurance company begins paying. Typically, there is a basic level of preventive services like checkups that are covered whether you have paid your deductible or not.

If you or a family member needs orthodontic care, or will need it in the future, it’s smart to look for a dental insurance plan with orthodontic benefits in order to manage those costs. Different dental insurance plans offer different discounts on the cost of braces and other devices, so be sure to read carefully through the benefits offered in each plan.

Orthodontic care may not be covered if you begin treatment before you start a dental insurance plan. Be sure to get dental coverage before you start working with an orthodontist.

No. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) doesn’t cover dental insurance. However, under certain conditions you can purchase dental insurance from the Marketplace.

No. The ACA doesn’t require adults to have dental insurance. Having dental coverage is an important part of being fit and staying healthy.

Yes, dental insurance is worth it! In many cases, your annual premium is less than the cost of 2 visits to your dentist per year for regular checkups.

Maintaining good oral health is a key part of staying healthy. It’s important that your kids have regular dental care as they grow. Dental insurance helps manage the costs of preventive care and also helps lower costs in the case of unexpected events, like a broken tooth or a cavity.
