Dental insurance is one way our patients offset the costs of their dental care, and if you invest in dental insurance for your family, the California Happy Teeth Family Dentistry team can help. Our team is happy to process and file dental insurance claims for most providers, and we offer in-network coverage for many insurers, including MetLife. If you have a MetLife dental insurance policy, please don’t hesitate to give us a call to ask any questions or schedule an appointment with us in our Milpitas dentistry practice.
As a MetLife dentist, we have established a relationship with this insurer. Part of our agreement is that we will charge the fees outlined by MetLife for all of the covered dentistry services. That means you’ll only ever need to pay the out of pocket costs for treatment. Dental practices that are not in-network with your MetLife preferred provider organization (PPO) plan can charge higher fees. MetLife will still provide coverage, but you will need to pay the difference in the dentist’s cost and the insurers standard fees as well as your out of pocket costs. In most cases, differences in pricing our minimal, but with an in-network dentist, you never need to worry about these additional costs.
When you visit a MetLife dentist every six months for dental checkups and teeth cleanings, you know you’ll receive the highest amount of coverage from your dental plan, usually 80 to 100%. Plus, we partner with you to prevent more advanced oral health concerns that require more extensive dental care and receive lower treatment coverage. We also have experience working with MetLife on a regular basis, so we can help you maximize your coverage on every dental treatment in our office. When you visit an in-network MetLife dentist, you know you’ll receive quality care at an affordable price that makes the most of your insurance benefits.
Every dental insurance policy represents a unique contract, and patients and/or their employers are given options to elect specific coverage, which affects their monthly premiums. Without looking at your individual policy documents, we can’t tell you exactly what coverage you’ll receive from MetLife for dental care. However, most MetLife plans provide the following:
