Delta Dental Glossary of Terms
While your Delta Dental insurance plan may be slightly different from your neighbor’s in Castle Rock, there are some basics that apply to almost all. We recommend familiarizing yourself with the following common insurance terms.
- Maximum. The majority of dental plans have an annual dollar maximum that your insurance company will pay toward the cost of dental care within a calendar year. Go over the annual maximum and you are responsible for payment.
- Deductible. Delta Dental insurance plans have a specific dollar deductible. Typically, this means that at the start of a calendar year, you must pay for a portion of your dental bill before your benefit plan will begin to cover the cost of dental treatment. Check your plan, because the details can vary.
- Coinsurance. Coinsurance is often called a copayment. This is an out-of-pocket cost that you must pay; Delta Dental pays a percentage of the cost for a specific procedure and then you pay the balance, or coinsurance. You must pay this even after you’ve satisfied your deductible.
Our Dental Services and Delta Dental
Castle Pines dentist Dr. Benzley offers a comprehensive menu of general, restorative and cosmetic dentistry services to keep your children’s smiles healthy and attractive. Your Delta Dental dentist is pleased to offer a comprehensive dental checkup that is included in all insurance plans. In fact, all dental insurance companies encourage subscribers to schedule dental checkups at least every six months for themselves and their children. These visits are an important preventive step.
At your child’s checkup, we’ll count and clean their teeth, evaluate the condition of their gum tissue and take digital x-rays once a year. Dr. Benzley may also recommend fluoride treatments or dental sealants to help prevent tooth decay.
