Dr. Brad Heim and Dr. John Carroll have a goal, and that is to make high quality dental care accessible to all patients. For this reason, we’re in-network with a number of dental insurance companies, including United Healthcare. In addition to providing a full range of services for Glastonbury families, our friendly staff is always here to ensure that you understand and maximize your dental benefits.
Dr. Heim and Dr. Carroll are in network with United Healthcare, which means that they have an agreement with them to provide dental services to you at a set fee. This ensures that you’ll know exactly what your out-of-pocket cost is before you have your treatment done.
United Healthcare offers a few different plans to choose from, including a Value Plan that doesn’t have a yearly maximum. The other plans have various deductibles and maximums, and your percentage of coverage will be based on the type of plan you choose. Reviewing plan specifics will help you determine the coverage that will best suit the needs of you and your family. We know that dental insurance can be confusing and hard to understand, so our knowledgeable staff is available to answer your questions about your coverage.
It’s important to understand that while Dr. Heim and Dr. Carroll have an agreement with United Healthcare, as the subscriber, you ultimately have a contract with them, and it’s important to review your policy so you understand how your benefits work. We’re happy to file claims to United Healthcare on your behalf, and help you learn how to utilize and maximize your benefits.
As with many dental insurance plans, most United Healthcare plans have a yearly maximum that they will pay toward your treatment. For calendar year plans, if you don’t use those dollars by the end of the year, you’ll lose them. Be sure to contact our dental office today to schedule your next appointment and maximize your dental benefits.
