Are you and your loved ones covered by Aetna dental insurance? If so, finding an Aetna dentist in McKinney should be at the top of your to-do list. Working with an in-network dentist is key for getting the most bang for your buck. Keep reading to learn more about how Dr. Rana Lee can help you save money while also enjoying better oral health -- all thanks to your investment in dental insurance!
What Does It Mean to Be an Aetna Dentist?
An Aetna dentist -- which Dr. Lee is proud to be -- has signed a contract with your dental insurance provider to offer certain services at a fixed, reduced rate for you. Services include the preventive and restorative treatments you need to maintain a clean and healthy smile for life (more on what is covered below).
When you visit an Aetna dentist for a treatment that is fully paid for by dental insurance, no money exchanges hands at all. We’ll just schedule a time for you to come back and wave goodbye to you on the way out! For anything else, you will be expected to pay the amount you owe when the service is rendered. We will file the claim and receive the full payment later on.
The Benefits of Seeing an Aetna Dentist
Life is easier when you visit a dentist who is in-network with your Aetna insurance plan. You may be eligible to receive the same savings in the form of a reimbursement when you visit an out-of-network dentist, but you will often have to wait weeks or months for that to come through.
Some of the considerable benefits of visiting an Aetna dentist include:
Receive your savings immediately
We handle all the paperwork for you
As experts in your insurance plan, we can talk you through the nitty-gritty details of coverage
We perform a verification of benefits to learn about the ins and outs of your coverage
Feel confident knowing you are making the most out of your investment from year to year
What Services Are Covered by Insurance?
The details of your Aetna coverage will depend on a few specifics, like your copay, deductible, and other features decided upon at the time of enrollment. In general, you can expect your coverage to look something like this:
Two checkups and cleanings per year are completely covered by dental insurance
You can receive an annual set of X-rays and possibly dental sealants and fluoride treatments, as well
Basic restorative care is covered up to 80% -- including fillings, simple extractions, and more
More complex restorative treatments and prosthetics are usually covered by half
Elective procedures are typically not covered by dental insurance
