If your employer changes and you have a new dental insurance plan you may lose access to your family dentist. This can be a real challenge for a family that has long used a family dentist and can result in a difficult period of adaptation. This article will consider various factors that you should consider when this occurs.
The first step when your insurance changes is to see if your family dentist accepts the new insurance or if there is an alternative way to pay them if you want to stick with them. BE sure to be open and honest with your dentist, particularly if you like them and explain the situation. Many dental insurance plans only provide partial coverage and others have strong out-of-network coverage so you may consider to stick with your family dentist anyway. Alternatively, you can pursue an outside insurance company that provides dental coverage. Look into the cost of this outside dental insurance plan and perform an overall comparison.
Finally, consider switching to a new dental insurance provider and visit your dental insurance website to find local dentists. Ask others in the company as well as your neighbors for a recommendation for dentists who be located nearby for the best results.
