Humana Dentist – San Antonio, TX
How Humana Helps You Afford High Quality Dentistry
Here at New Image Dentistry, our patients’ oral and overall health are our top priorities. However, we also understand that many families are concerned about the cost of dental care. That is why we are proud to be in-network with several major dental insurance providers, including Humana. Your policy is an invaluable asset that can help you receive necessary preventive care at little to no out of pocket cost. It is also there as a safety net if you ever need any restorative work for your smile.
Our team are experts with dental insurance, and we’re eager to help you get the greatest value possible out of your Humana plan.
Humana Coverage Availability & Fees
Humana offers a number of different types of plans, including both PPO and DHMO plans. PPO plans are quite flexible and allow you to visit any licensed dentist. However, when you visit an in-network dentist like New Image Dentistry, you can expect lower out of pocket fees. Plus, because we’re familiar with the way Humana works, we can offer personalized tips to help you get the most out of your coverage. For example, PPO plans come with an annual maximum (the most that Humana will pay out for approved services within a calendar year). We may be able to split up certain treatments across calendar years to allow you to leverage two maximums rather than one.
We’ll also help you understand the ins and outs of your policy and how it may apply in any given situation. Here is a basic overview of how Humana PPO plans work:
- Preventive care, such as cleanings and X-rays: 100% covered
- Basic restorative care, such as fillings: 40 – 80% covered
- Major restorative care, such as root canal therapy and crowns: 20 – 50% covered
Keep in mind that not all Humana plans cover all services. For example, the most basic plan may not provide coverage for any major services. One of their plans, Dental Loyalty Plus, has coverage rates that change year after year.
If you’re ever confused about how your Humana plan works, give us a call. We can help you figure out the fine print of your policy so there won’t be any surprises when you use it to receive care in our office.
