The American Dental Association recommends visiting your dentist every 6 months for a cleaning and checkup. However, many people view routine appointments as a luxury because of cost concerns. If you have dental insurance, you don't have to worry about a large bill. You can benefit from high-quality dentistry for minimal out-of-pocket expenses when choosing a Humana dentist in New Bedford at Clear Coast Dental.

Humana Coverage Availability & Fees

Humana provides comprehensive dental plans for families and individuals nationwide. Your premiums for your policy give you access to discounted rates for the services you need to support your oral health. Although every plan differs, most dental insurance policies include:

  • 100% Coverage for Preventive Dentistry
  • 80% Coverage for Basic Dental Care
  • 50% Coverage for Major Dental Work

You can commit to visiting your dentist every 6 months for a cleaning and checkup, even when money is tight. Preventive care is covered 100% for only a co-payment. You'll keep preventable issues at bay to avoid needing costly treatments later. Researchers have found that $1 of preventive dentistry can save up to $50 on restorative fees.

If your dentist finds anything concerning, don't worry because Humana is there for you. After meeting your annual deductible, your dental insurance will cover some of the expenses of medically necessary treatments, like fillings, dental crowns, and tooth extractions. You can use your yearly allowance to lower your out-of-pocket expenses.

Humana recommends choosing an in-network dentist because they have pre-negotiated rates for select services to reduce the amount you'll pay. However, you can still use your coverage at an out-of-network dentist, but you may pay more out-of-pocket. We are proud to accept both in-network and out-of-network patients.

With less than 3% of Americans meeting or exceeding their annual limits, you have plenty of benefits at your disposal. Unfortunately, they don't last forever. Your coverage resets at the end of the year, and you'll lose anything you haven't used. We will help you make the most of your dental insurance to invest in healthy teeth and gums without it costing you an arm or a leg.
