United Healthcare Coverage Availability & Fees
If you have a policy with United Healthcare, you’ve made an excellent choice. Not only will you likely find that your plan covers 100% of preventive services (i.e. dental checkups and cleanings, X-rays, dental sealants, fluoride treatments), but it also covers anywhere between 70-80% for minor restorative services (i.e. dental fillings, root canals, tooth extractions) and between 50-70% for major restorative services (i.e. dental crowns, dentures).
By agreeing to pay a monthly premium, you will gain access to your benefits, all of which are good for an entire calendar year. While you may not plan to encounter a serious dental problem throughout the year, your dental insurance will be there to help if you do. Learn that you need a root canal? If you’ve met your annual deductible, your out of pocket expenses will be much lower since your insurer will be responsible for paying more for the procedure.
But rest assured, our team will make sure you don’t go over your annual maximum, as you would be required to pay the remaining balance left behind after your insurance is applied. Instead, we will spread out your treatments over several calendar years to help you save in costs.
As a policyholder with United Healthcare, your level of coverage and benefits will prove even more beneficial if you choose to see an in-network provider like Premier Family Dental. By negotiating our services and rates with the insurance company, we can make sure that you pay the lowest price for the services you receive.
