Dental Insurance Benefit Limitations are OK
Dental insurance benefit limitations are a reality. Although our patients and team members often misunderstand this. And miscommunicate this. How do we best accept and integrate this into our practice?
It’s simple. Let go of the battle. And embrace the reality. Dental insurance benefit limitations exist. So, we do well to get a handle on those limitations. Especially as we enter into financial discussions with our patients.
Dental Insurance Denials
Avoid dental insurance claim denials with knowledge. Knowledge of limitations in plan benefits. They are very black and white. When benefits are payable and when they are not is very clear. We must learn the language. And read policy terms with care.
Often, the dental team may not truly dig into benefit limitations. They are there. Inexperienced dental office team members miss this. Which leads to unhappy patients and growing receivables. We lose our patients’ trust and credibility. Which is nearly impossible to gain back.
Dental Insurance Benefit Limitations Matter!
Because our patients matter. We are in dentistry to be of service to our communities. Remember, we can work with benefits without restriction. And we help our patients most when we lead them to step beyond insurance limitations in treatment acceptance.
When we know and understand their benefit limitations, we offer better service. And even extend opportunity for our patients to accept and receive care differently.
