At the Ardmore dental office of Dr. Jamie Guthrie, we’re dedicated to providing affordable dental care options that exceed the highest patient expectations. One way that we make dental treatments more affordable is processing and filing dental insurance claims for the majority of benefit plans. We are also proud to be a member of the HealthChoice dental insurance network. HealthChoice is a self-funded insurance network that covers state and local government and education employees, retirees, and their families. There are HealthChoice plans available for medical, dental, and other healthcare needs. If you and your family are covered by HealthChoice, please let our caring team members know when you call to schedule your first appointment with us. We’ll be happy to answer your questions, review your policy, and help you make the most of your dental coverage.
Like other dental insurance policies, HealthChoice plans require patients to pay a monthly premium. In exchange, the patient receives coverage for the majority of preventive and restorative dental care. Some basic terms you should know to better understand your HealthChoice benefit plan include:
HealthChoice plans cover a wide range of preventive and restorative dentistry services and orthodontic treatments. Preventive treatments are covered 100%, basic restorative treatments like root canals and tooth extractions are covered 85%, and major restorative treatments like dental implant tooth replacement and dentures are covered 65%.
You are free to visit any dental office and still receive benefits from the HealthChoice plan, but you will have lower deductibles and higher coverage percentages if you receive care from an in-network dentist.
In order to maximize your dental benefits, keep the following in mind:
