What is Anthem Insurance?
Anthem is a nationwide insurance provider that offers dental coverage on its own and through Blue Cross Blue Shield. Either way, this company provides both group and individual dental insurance plans at a variety of coverage levels. You can sign up for coverage for yourself, your spouse, and your kids through your employer or by getting their individual and family plans.
When signing up, you’re able to get standalone dental coverage only or add health and vision insurance as needed for your family’s well-being. You will need to renew your insurance policy on a yearly basis to maintain coverage with Anthem. At the signup and renewal periods, you will receive your ID cards and a booklet sharing all the details of your dental insurance coverage.
Dental Coverage Offered by Anthem
Dental plans offered by Anthem vary from state to state. Depending on your location, you may be able to sign up for their Essential Choice or Family PPO dental plans. There are also many other employer-sponsored plans to consider.
All their plans cover preventative care and diagnostic tests in full without any waiting periods. They’re also known for offering comprehensive pediatric essential dental health benefits that help keep teeth healthy and beautiful through age 18.
Coverage for basic and major dental care services differs from plan to plan, as does the annual benefit maximums. Basic dental care typically includes simple fillings, root scaling and planing, and emergency procedures. Major care services range from root canals and crowns to extractions and dentures.
How to Confirm Dental Coverage
When you sign up for coverage through Anthem, take the time to read through your dental coverage booklet. Then, repeat that step every year after renewing your coverage to stay well-informed about any changes.
By doing that, you’ll get to know what preventative, basic, and major dental care procedures are covered by your plan and at what rate. Your plan may cover preventative care services at 100%, while major procedures are only covered at 60% at most, for example.
If you’re not sure how your insurance will handle the charges, just ask our team for support. We can go over your bill line by line or even provide you with a quote before moving forward with care. Our team just has to complete the preauthorization process to see what the insurance will cover and what you may need to pay.
Alternative Payment Methods
To help you preserve your child’s healthy, happy smile, we offer many ways to handle your bill, including billing your insurance, of course. Our team will process your payment through your insurance plan and then let you know what you have left to cover.
You can settle your end of the bill using any major credit cards online or in person. We also accept payments using cash or check at the front counter of our dental office. Just let us know how you’d like to proceed, and we’ll make it happen.
If you need additional support in handling your bill, ask about CareCredit. We’re always here to help you explore all your financial options as needed to ensure your child gets the highest quality of dental care through the years.
