Overland Park KS Dental Practice Services | What Your Patients Need to Know About Their Insurance Plan

Each year, dental insurance plans are covering less and costing more for your patients. You already understand the benefits of having a Private Dental Plan™, but your patients may not be convinced. Here is what you should inform your patients about to help them make the best decisions concerning their coverage options.

  1. Unlike medical insurance, dental insurance is meant only to act as an aid, and won’t completely cover their treatments.
  1. Many insurance companies will try to convince patients to use something called a “preferred provider”. If you are not on this list, you may end up losing patients. This is bad news for both your practice and your patients. Remind them that these dentists are “preferred” by insurance companies because they reduce their fees to entice more patients. In order to do so, the quality of provided care often drastically declines.
  1. Another common tactic to keep costs down is something called a “down-code” or an “alternate benefit”. This will often result in patients receiving outdated care that is cheaper. It’s important to remind your patients that their insurance company wants the cheapest dentistry available. You want to give them the best dentistry available. Which do they want?
  1. By choosing a Private Dental Plan™, patients can expect to make their care more affordable and immediate. Created by you, this insurance plan covers the exact procedure your patient needs and simplifies the process for both you and your patients.

Your care for your patients encompasses more than just the bare minimum. By making sure your patients understand their options, you demonstrate to them the level of dedication you have to their oral healthcare needs. This is a reminder that they will be sure to appreciate.

Overland Park KS Dental Practice Services | The 74 Million Potential Patients You’re Missing Out On

Health insurance, including quality dental plans, is in high demand around the country. Despite this, a surprisingly high number of Americans lack coverage. According to the National Association of Dental Plans, nearly 23% of Americans have no dental insurance whatsoever.

That equates to 74 million people in the U.S. who may not be going into dental practices at all. More than a third of adults haven’t seen a dental professional in the past year. It’s time to get those patients into your office and accepting the care they need before it’s too late.

For many potential patients, going to the dentist is thought to be simply too expensive. What they don’t realize is that the longer they go without seeing a professional, the more expensive their eventual visit becomes. Without dental benefits, people are at an increased risk of suffering from other diseases or conditions too.

Studies have shown that declining oral health can increase the risk of heart disease by 67%,  the risk of diabetes by 29% and even lead to some types of cancers.

As a practice owner, you have the potential to provide both coverage and care to these patients through an in-office dental plan. By carrying your own dental coverage, you make care more affordable, allowing patients to accept treatment plans. You also have the ability to provide treatment immediately, providing the care that patients may otherwise neglect.

A Private Dental Plan™ from Dental Practice Services, Inc. is also a great benefit for you. By allowing you to retain patients for longer and simplifying the payment process it means more revenue for your practice.

It’s time to ask yourself if you can continue to afford not having a Private Dental Plan™. Don’t miss out on the millions of patients that need your care. Contact our office today to learn more about creating the perfect in-office dental plan for your practice.
