What Does My MetLife Dental Insurance Cover?

In the state of Nevada, you are covered under the MetLife Preferred Dentist Program. The services you are eligible for are detailed under your group benefits. Look for the dental certificate of insurance to find more about coverage, limitations, exclusions, and reductions.

Most dental plans cover your preventive care. That’s two checkups and cleanings plus a set of x-rays each year. These services are crucial to maintaining your clean, healthy teeth for a lifetime to come. Preventing gum disease also supports your overall health -- the gum condition has been linked to heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and other serious health problems.

Why Does It Matter If My Dentist Is In-Network?

While you can always visit a dentist who is out-of-network with your insurance plan, you may have to pay higher out-of-pocket fees because he or she has not previously agreed to accept MetLife’s rates. Dr. Hollingshead is in-network with MetLife, so visiting our office for your dental care guarantees you will be receiving the full benefits of your dental insurance.

How Do I File a Claim?

First, based on the details of your dental insurance coverage, you pay any money you owe out-of-pocket at the time you receive services. Then, our office will take care of the rest. We submit and file your claims for you! That means you don’t have to worry about any paperwork or complicated instructions. Let our experts take care of everything for you.

How Do I Make the Most Out of My Dental Insurance Plan?

Your money should work for you -- and we want to help all of our patients get the maximum benefit from their dental insurance. The key to making the most out of your insurance is understanding what your plan covers. First, find out which treatments are completely covered each year. Make sure you schedule an appointment to have those preventive services rendered before the year is up and your plan renews. 

You may not meet your deductible each year, but when you do, you will want to make sure you come close to your annual maximum, too. Your deductible is the amount of money you must pay out-of-pocket for restorative or other care before your dental insurance will cover other services. After you have reached the deductible, you have an annual maximum beyond which your insurance will not pay. We invite you to contact our office to find out how we can help you be smart about using your plan to benefit your wallet and your oral health.
