Choosing Sunnyvale Dental Care for your preventative, basic and major dentistry needs is a good decision. Sunnyvale Dentist Dr. Antonious has been serving the community with general, cosmetic, and specialized dentistry for many years. If you have dental insurance coverage through Ameritas Dental PPO insurance, you will be happy to know that Sunnyvale Dentist Dr. Antonious is an in-network preferred provider for patients with this coverage.
Dr. Antonious and the entire Sunnyvale Dental Care team are committed to providing you with quality dental care at a price that you can afford. They will help you get the most out of your Ameritas Dental PPO insurance plan. The best way to do this is to thoroughly understand your individual dental insurance policy. Once you provide basic information, eligibility information and a breakdown of benefits can be requested and obtained from Ameritas Dental PPO insurance company on your behalf.
Another way to help you maximize your annual benefits is to pre-authorize or obtain a pretreatment estimate for your dental treatment. Is this a requirement of Ameritas Dental PPO insurance? No. In most instances obtaining a pre-authorization of benefits is not required but may provide helpful information.
We try our best to give you an accurate estimate prior to treatment based on information that we have received about your individual policy, but the most accurate estimate would be one that came directly from the insurance company. It may take two or more weeks to obtain this information.
A copy of the pre-authorization of benefits is available to you online or can be requested by mail from Ameritas Dental. We will also receive a copy and once received we will contact you to schedule your appointment.
Contained on the pre-authorization of benefits report will be your yearly coverage maximum, the amount that is unused, your yearly deductible, whether or not it has been paid, whether or not the procedure is a covered benefit, the coverage percentage, the amount that Ameritas Dental will pay in your behalf, the amount that you will be responsible for paying, and the amount that you will save by visiting an in-network dentist.
