We are open - safety is our top priority!
Dental insurance makes dental care affordable for millions of Americans. Most of our patients receive their dental insurance through their employer. The employer has negotiated the plan benefits with the insurer and normally pays part of the cost. Since the coverage amount for a service can vary employer to employer, it is possible for individuals with the same provider to pay different amounts for the same treatment. In the end, it is the responsibility of the patient to pay any portion of the total fee that is not paid by their insurance.

How Do I Find Out How to Use My Dental Insurance with a Dentist in Wilbraham?
Whether you are looking for a dentist that accepts PPO insurance or a dentist that accepts HMO insurance, it is important to understand the basics of what your plan covers. While our staff can help you find a dentist in Wilbraham by insurance, specific benefit questions should be directed to your insurance provider. Before scheduling an appointment, you should contact your provider to ask the following questions:
- What is my deductible?
- Do I have a co-pay?
- Are braces, Invisalign®, and other orthodontic treatments covered?
- Do services have to be authorized in advance?
- Is there a cap on annual benefits?
- Are dental implants covered?
- Is there a waiting period before certain procedures are covered?
- Are cosmetic treatments, such as overlays and veneers, covered?
- How many visits am I allowed per year?
- What coverage options do I have for replacing missing teeth?
- Are specialized services, such as endodontics and oral surgery, covered?
- Is there a dentist near me who accepts my insurance?
It is also important to understand the distinctions between PPO and HMO insurance plans. PPO plans normally provide greater flexibility in choosing a dentist. However, you may be required to pay a copay for each visit. HMO plans require you to select from a list of providers, but they typically have lower premiums.
At Baystate Dental of Wilbraham, we will work with you to help you get the most out of your dental insurance benefits and to keep any out-of-pocket costs to a minimum. We also offer flexible financing options to help you manage any unexpected costs.
