Cigna PPO: Find an Endodontist Who Accepts Cigna PPO Insurance.
If you want to be sure that you will maximize your dental insurance benefits, while avoiding any future problems over billing, you have to use the appropriate terminology when looking for a Cigna PPO Endodontist to complete your root canal.
Otherwise, you may end up spending a lot of money unnecessarily.
Here’s the problem: people often use the terms, “Accepting” and “In-Network” interchangeably, but they have completely different meanings. You’ll be happy to know that Creekside Endodontics accepts most major dental insurance plans, and more importantly is also in-Network with the top Cigna Dental Insurance plans. As a Cigna policyholder, that will save money.
Let’s look at the difference in “Accepting” and “In-Network”
Because we’re an in-Network provider, Creekside Endodontics is required to charge you predetermined fees negotiated by Cigna. You’ll get all the dental benefits you’re entitled to receive, but you’ll get them at maximum savings under your dental plan.
These predetermined fees are lower than our dental practice’s regular fees. The difference in fees can be substantial, but because our Endodontist eliminates the difference, our patients receive a significant discount on their bill. Cigna also reviews the bill to ensure that there are no unnecessary treatment charges added.
Next up: “Accepting” Cigna PPO
An Endodontist can “accept” Cigna insurance, but if they’re not an in-Network provider, they don’t have a signed contract with the insurance company. Which means they don’t have to limit their charges to the negotiated fees. Your insurance will be “accepted” and your benefits will be applied towards your bill, but there’s nothing in place to keep them from charging their regular fees. Bottom line: it will cost you more to use an Endodontist who is not in-Network with Cigna. And it could add up to a lot more.
3 Additional Benefits to an In-Network Cigna PPO Dentist
Professionally Credentialed Cigna Provider
To become an in-network dental provider for Cigna, dentists must pass professional credentialing requirements. To insure that dentists stay compliant, Cigna re-credentials dentists every year. This ensures that you have quality professionals rendering your care.
Paperwork Filed Directly to Cigna
When you have treatment completed with an in-network Cigna dentist, your dentist will file all of the necessary dental claims and paperwork. You simply go to the dental office and receive treatment, your dental office will do the rest.
Direct Payments Mean No Waiting For Reimbursement
Cigna pays your in-network dentist directly. Without direct payment, a dental office may require you to pay the entire amount upfront and you would have to wait for Cigna to reimburse you. However, with an in-network dentist, Cigna pays the dental office directly and you only need to pay your portion as described in your insurance policy. After Cigna receives the claim, they will send you an Explanation of Benefits(EOB) The EOB will inform you of what claims were submitted, your expected co-payment and your remaining benefits.
Ask the right question before you make a big mistake!
If you get an answer that’s, “Yes,” you’ll be using an Endodontist that has a signed contract with the insurance company and is required to accept the discounted fees set by the company. That means that as a patient, you’ll only pay the percentage that you agreed to when you signed up with the insurance plan. The Endodontist will eliminate any difference in fees – saving you money!
Just remember: if you use a dentist who “accepts” payment by Cigna PPO but isn’t an “in-Network” provider, any balance becomes your total responsibility. And that might end up costing you hundreds of dollars.
So you can see why it’s important to always ask the right question!
We’re proud to be an in-Network Cigna endodontist provider. We’ll handle all of your dental care, and all paperwork that Cigna requires. Most importantly, you’ll receive the negotiated fees for your dental treatment – saving you money.
