If you are trying to find an In-Network Delta Dental PPO Endodontist, this is where you start!
In-Network Delta Dental PPO Endodontist
If you’re looking for an Endodontist who accepts Delta Dental PPO Insurance to complete your root canal, you’re looking in the right place. But before you spend any time searching, please read this important information! To ensure that you maximize your dental insurance benefits, as well as avoid any problems or confusion, you must use the appropriate terminology – which we’ll provide here.
Some people tend to use the terms, “accepting” and “In-Network” interchangeably, but the fact is they have totally different meanings – especially when it comes to dental insurance. Creekside Endodontics is proud to accept most of the major dental insurance plans, but is also In-Network with the top Delta Dental PPO Insurance plans as well. And that is very important to you!
Ok, What’s the Different Between the Terms, “Accepting” and In-Network?”
Let’s Start with “In-Network” Dental Dental PPO Endodontist
As an “In-Network” Delta Dental Endodontist, Creekside Endodontics has a signed contract with the insurance company. That means our patients receive all of the dental insurance benefits that they’re entitled to, along with maximum savings under their dental plan.
All iI-Network dental offices adhere to predetermined fees that are set by the insurance company – which are lower than the dental practice’s regular fees. This difference in fees can be considerable, and because the dentist eliminates the difference, patients receive a significant discount on their bill. There’s another benefit as well – the dental insurance company reviews the bill and makes sure that there are no unnecessary treatment charges added.
Here’s Information on “Accepting” Delta Dental PPO Insurance
An Endodontist who is “accepting” Delta Dental PPO insurance but is NOT an In-Network Delta Dental PPO Endodontist has no contract with the insurance company. Sure, they’ll “accept” your insurance benefits and apply them towards all of your charges, the do not have to honor the insurance company’s conditions, terms and PRICING. They have no obligation whatsoever to discount the cost of their treatment programs in order to comply with any published fees put out by the insurance company.
That means that as the patient, you’ll be responsible for the additional costs related to your dental treatment.
If you don’t ask the right question, you won’t get the right answer!
Forget asking the Endodontist’s dental office if they “accept your Delta Dental PPO insurance plan.” They might, but as we just mentioned, it won’t help with the bottom line of the bill. Instead, ask, “Are you In-Network with my Delta Dental PPO insurance plan?”
If the answer is, “Yes,” it means that they have a signed contract with the insurance company and will accept the discounted fee set by the insurance provider. As the patient, you’ll only pay your percentage that you agreed to with the insurance plan, and if there’s any balance – the dentist will eliminate it. That will save you money!
Here’s what happens if you choose to use a dentist who “accepts” payment by Delta Dental but is NOT an “inINetwork” Delta Dental PPO Endodontist: the balance becomes your entire responsibility! This is why you must ask the right question.
Otherwise – you’ll end up being liable for a lot of money.
Remember: Creekside Endodontics is an in-Network provider with Delta Dental PPO Insurance. Your dental care is handled, all paperwork required by Delta Dental will be taken care of, and you’ll get the negotiated fee for your treatment, which will save you a lot of money!
