Coordinating with Humana Dental Insurance, Sunnyvale Dentist, Dr. Bhawna Gupta and his highly skilled team are here to help you maximize your dental benefits and provide you with the best oral health care possible. Detailed comprehension of your plan is of utmost importance and here at Sunnyvale Dental Care we strive to educate you on the in’s and out’s of your plan.
Humana Dental Insurance, like most insurance, has a plan maximum. This term “plan maximums” refers to the total dollar amount provided for you to use for dental care during a benefit period, which is typically 12 consecutive months or one calendar year. The plan maximum renews on the renewal date of your benefit period. Humana plan maximums vary based on the tier selected by you or your employer and typically range from $2500 on the higher end to $1000 on the lower end. Certain treatments, such as elective and cosmetic procedures are not usually covered and therefore do not deduct from your maximum. It’s important to understand that varying levels of procedures are covered at varying percentages and will affect your maximum accordingly. Preventive care is often covered at 100% while a procedure such as a crown may only be covered at 50%. You will pay the percent not paid by Humana. Understanding these stipulations is vital to maximizing your dental plan benefits
The term “deductible” alludes to a payment that needs to be made by you for dental services before Humana will begin to pay. Like maximums, deductibles renew on your plan’s renewal date, but not all procedures will require a deductible. Many types of insurances require deductibles; car insurance is a good example.
There are a variety of dental insurance plans available to you. At Sunnyvale Dental Care we believe that a clear understanding of your Humana Dental Plan is vital for reaching your best oral health. Sunnyvale Dentist, Dr. Bhawna Gupta and his team are dedicated to helping you understand all of the terms of your dental insurance.
