Insurance Education 



Dr. Meinbach and the staff at M Dental are committed to providing you with the best in patient care because your health is most important. Dental insurance can be valuable tool to help keep your mouth healthy. We are here to help you take the best possible care of your teeth so they will be with you for your lifetime!

Our office accepts most dental insurance plans. We verify all plans prior to seeing you in our office. We are happy to go over your benefits with you and help you to understand your coverage. Following each appointment, all claims will be electronically filed on your behalf. Please note, treatment plans with insurance coverage benefits are just an estimation. Guarantor is responsible for treatment not covered by insurance.

We recognize it is tempting to make decisions based on what your insurance will pay towards; however, we recommend you make treatment decisions based on what is best for your oral health and the treatment plan outlined and discussed with you by Dr. Meinbach.

Types of Insurance Plans We Accept

Preferred Provider Organization (PPO)

Patients enrolled in a PPO will have a list of preferred providers or dentists to choose from. Preferred providers have a contract with the dental benefit plan. They assist in covering services provided based on the contracted fee schedule. Whether you are a preferred provider or not, most plans pay 100% for preventative care treatment (x-rays, exams, basic cleanings), 80% for basic restorative care (dental fillings), and 50% for major restorative treatment (crown, bridges, partial/complete dentures). Dental care from a dentist who is not in the network may result in higher out-of-pocket costs.

  • Covered Benefits are treatments that maybe recommended by your dentist, and are listed on your insurance fee schedule and accepted under the terms of your group plan.

  • Downgrading Procedures or Least Expensive Alternative Treatment is a clause they exists in many plans today. This means your plan recognizes there are different ways to treat a specific existing condition, but is only willing to help you cover the treatment in the least expensive way possible. The least expensive option is not always the best option. An example of this would be if the doctor recommends an implant and your plan will only cover must less expensive dentures. Other restorative examples include covering metal fillings instead of tooth-like fillings or covering metal crowns instead of porcelain crowns. These situations result in Downcoding. Your plan changes the codes submitted to a less complex or lower cost procedure than was reported by the dental office of what you actually received. The difference will always be the patients responsibility.

  • Optional Treatments are either not listed on your insurance fee schedule or may be more involved to restore a tooth back to its original function.

  • Plan Frequency Limitations include the number of times your plan for pay for a certain type of treatment. Some patients may need a treatment more often to maintain good oral health. An example of this would be the plan that covers two cleanings a year, however due to periodontal conditions, it may be recommended that you have a cleaning four times a year. Treatment decisions should be based on what is best for your oral health, not just what your plan will cover.

  • Pre-Existing Conditions are conditions you had prior to enrolling in the plan. For example, if your policy has a missing tooth clause and you had a tooth extracted prior to being enrolled in the plan, benefits will not be paid for the replacement of the tooth that is missing whether it be via implant crown or bridge. When these situations arise, it doesn't mean you don't need the treatment because your plan will not cover certain conditions, you still need treatment to keep your mouth in optimal health.

Discount Plans

Discount Plans simply consist of the panel of dentists that have agreed to a reduced rate, with the subscriber being solely responsible for the entire portion of the bill. There is no billing or annual maximums for this type of coverage because all services are paid for at the time of service by the patient enrolled.
