Humana Dental Dentist - Midtown East, NY
Helping you achieve the smile of your dreams
Having dental insurance is a helpful tool that allows you to defray the cost of the dental services you need. Choosing a dentist in your Humana Dental network ensures that you receive the most from your benefits. Patients will be happy to know that Dr. Aaronson is the Humana Dental dentist in Midtown East that patients trust with their smiles and oral health, as we are in your Humana network.
While medical insurances focus on covering illnesses and emergencies, dental insurance focuses on prevention to help you avoid bigger problems in the long run. For example, if Dr. Aaronson detects decay at your six month cleaning and checkup, it’s likely that if you treat it right away a simple dental filling can restore your tooth back to health. If you wait to treat that tooth, the decay could progress into the nerve causing an infection and requiring a much more invasive procedure such as root canal therapy.
Humana Dental Coverage Availability & Fees
Even within your Humana Dental Network, your employer’s plan is unique. While coverage varies from one plan to the next, there are a few standard facts about dental insurance:
- Preventive care appointments are covered at 100% in network. This means that when you visit Dr. Aaronson& Associates for your six month cleaning and checkups, there is no out-of-pocket cost to you.
- Minor restorative treatments such as dental fillings will be covered at a percentage that could range from 70% to 80%.
- Major restorative treatment such as a dental crown or bridge is usually covered at around 50%.
- Most plans typically include a yearly maximum that falls between $1000 to $2000. This is the highest amount your plan will pay for treatment during your benefit year.
Our knowledgeable and friendly staff members are experts at helping our patients navigate their insurance plans and they will ensure that you understand your coverage so there are no surprises when it comes to the out-of-pocket cost of your treatment. We will also ensure that you maximize your benefits during the coverage year so you can get the treatment you need in a timely manner.
