Questions & Answers
What is a dental discount plan and a dental savings plan?
A dental discount plan and a dental savings plan are synonymous. They alternatives to regular dental insurance. With a discount or savings plan, you pay an annual fee and get discounts on your dental care of up to 60%.
Can I use my dental discount plan with my dental insurance?
Yes, but you will have had to first reach the annual maximum on your dental insurance policy before using your discount plan. And you won’t be able to apply insurance and a discount plan to the cost of one dental procedure (according to insurance rules).
Your dentist is the best person to talk with for more info on how you can use discount plans and insurance together.
Am I limited on how many times I can get a discount on dental care?
No, there are no limits with a dental discount plan. You can get a discount with every dental care visit.
Do I have to file a claim after getting dental care?
No, once you show your membership card, your discount is applied in-office. This means you won’t have to fill out paperwork or file a claim, like you would with an insurance policy.
Where can I use my discount dental plan?
You can get a discount at any dentist in the network. To see what dental professionals are in the network, you can check out iDental’s search tool (choose the “Find Dentists” option).
What about an out-of-network dentist — can I still get a discount with them?
No, you cannot. But if your dentist would like to join your network, they can contact iDental directly.
What is a fee schedule? Why do dentists use them?
A fee schedule is a just list of set fees that a dental professional may charge to patients depending on the type of care they get. A fee schedule is mainly to streamline the process of a dentist billing the insurance company for a reimbursement.
Will I be covered if I need dental implants, braces, veneers or other cosmetic procedures?
It’s possible. Many discount plans can cover things like dental implants and other special procedures. For more info on this, you can contact :DentalPlans’ Customer Service Department at 1-844-473-9852.
Do dentists benefit from participating in discount dental plans?
Yes. Dental professionals don’t make as much when a patient uses their dental discount plan (the dentist can’t get a reimbursement like they would with an insurance company), but by being in a discount plan network(s), they attract more patients. The less a dentist charges, the more people will give them business. It’s a win-win for both the dentist and the patient.
Do you have any coupon codes or special promos?
Yes, but only for Authority Dental readers. Use the coupon code AUTH10 at checkout and you’ll get 10% off and two months free, regardless of the plan you choose.
Do you have a money-back guarantee?
Yes, DentalPlans.com offers a 30-day money back guarantee (less the $20 processing fee at checkout). This guarantee applies to any discount dental plan offered on their website.
