Many people delay visiting their dentist because they are concerned about the cost. However, if you have dental insurance, a healthy smile is possible without worrying about a large bill. You will benefit from reduced rates when choosing a Humana dentist in Hillsboro. We can help you achieve the healthy, beautiful smile you deserve by using your monthly investment.
Humana is a nationwide provider of affordable dental plans for families and individuals. Their policies focus on prevention because research has shown that every $1 spent on preventive care can save up to $50 on restorative services. Your dental plan is designed to stop common oral health issues from occurring in the first place. However, if a problem arises, Humana is there for you. They'll pay a portion of the cost, so you can rehabilitate your smile, even if money is tight.
Although every policy differs, most plans include:
Paying your monthly premiums allows you to visit your dentist every 6 months for a cleaning and checkup after a co-payment. You'll benefit from a variety of preventive services, like diagnostic imaging and oral cancer screenings.
If a dental problem occurs later, you can use your annual allowance to offset the cost after meeting your deductible. Humana recommends choosing a dentist in their network to enjoy more coverage at the time of service, but you have the freedom to visit any practice that accepts your coverage.
We are proud to work with in-network and out-of-network patients. We will help you maximize your annual benefits before they expire at the end of the year.
Dental insurance in Hillsboro can be confusing, but you don’t have to navigate your policy alone. Our dental hygienist, Heidi, has over 30 years of experience in the dental field. She has completed courses at Boise State University and Pierce College, becoming a Registered Dental Hygienist. She has also completed additional training to earn her permits in dental anesthetic and nitrous oxide.
Heidi is passionate about helping our patients achieve their best smiles. She will work on your behalf with Humana to handle all the paperwork, so you have one less thing to worry about. Heidi will explain how your coverage is being used to pay for your care and if you owe any remaining balance. If there are any out-of-pocket expenses, she will also review your payment options, like third-party financing.
You pay for your dental insurance every month, so why not use it? You won’t be reimbursed for anything you don’t use, and it won’t accumulate in the next year. We will help you use your dental coverage to achieve optimal oral health for minimal expense.
