Looking for a Guardian Endodontist in Lone Tree?
Looking for an Guardian Endodontist in Lone Tree? Here’s some important information needed to help you in your search. You must use the appropriate terminology in order to eliminate any confusion as well as to make sure you maximize your dental insurance benefits.
While the terms, “accepting” and “in-Network” may be used interchangeably they have completely different meanings. Creekside Endodontics accepts most of the major dental insurance plans and is also in-Network with the top Guardian dental insurance plans.
So what’s the difference between “accepting” and “in-Network?”
Here’s Information on “In-Network” Guardian PPO Insurance
An Endodontist who is “in-network” with a dental insurance company has a signed contract with the company. This contract provides you with peace-of-mind, as it helps to ensure that you receive all of the dental insurance benefits you’re entitled to, and that you are able to receive maximum savings with your plan. The in-network dental office adheres to all predetermined fees set by the insurance company. The difference between the dental office’s standard pricing and the discounted pricing is eliminated by the dentist, providing the patient with a discount. As an added benefit, the dental insurance company will make sure that no unnecessary treatment charges are added to the total.
Here’s Information on “Accepting” Guardian PPO Insurance
What about an Endodontist who is accepting Guardian dental insurance? If they are not “in-network” there is no contract between the insurance company and the Endodontist. While they will “accept” your Guardian insurance benefits and apply them towards your total charges, they do not have to abide by the insurance company’s conditions, terms or more importantly, their pricing. That means there is no obligation on their part to discount the cost of treatment in order to comply with the insurance company’s published fee schedule. As the patient, you will be responsible for the additional costs involved in your treatment.
Be sure to ask the right question about a Guardian Endodontist!
Often, patients call the Endodontist and ask, “Do you accept my insurance plan?” The right question should be, “are you in-Network with my insurance plan?” Remember, in-Network Guardian Endodontists have a signed contract and agree to accept the discounted fee set and negotiated by the insurance company. As the patient, you will simply pay your percentage as you agreed to with your insurance plan, and if there is any balance, it is eliminated by the dentist.
But if you choose to use a dentist who “accepts” payment by Guardian Dental Insurance, but are not “in-Network” – then the balance will become totally your responsibility. That’s why it’s so important to be sure you are asking the right question! Otherwise, you could be liable for hundreds of dollars in out-of-pocket costs.
You can rest easy knowing that Creekside Endodontics is an in-Network provider with Guardian Dental Insurance. We’ll take care of your dental treatment and take care of the paperwork required by Guardian. Because you’re using an in-Network dentist, you’ll end up saving a significant amount of money on your dental treatment!
