Why Dental Insurance Can Be Aggravating for Dentists (video)

Why Dental Insurance Can Be Aggravating for Dentists (video)Many dentists feel that dental insurance is the bane of their existence.

Dentists often say that dealing with dental insurance is one of the most complicated aspects of dental practice management.

In fact, most dental patients have little understanding of how their dental insurance coverage actually works.  The intricacies of dental insurance and the lack of sufficient instruction provided by some insurance companies make it almost impossible for some dental patients to properly understand their dental insurance benefits.

This creates a widening divide between patients’ expectations of their dentist’s fees and what their the actual dental insurance coverage provides.

As one prosthodontist complained in a The Wealthy Dentist Survey on dental insurance, “My patients demand that I accept insurance assignments. At first I refused, but I lost more than half of my dental patients to other practitioners accepting insurance.”

The Wealthy Dentist survey asked dentists if they see dental insurance as friend or foe.

Not all dentists who responded to the survey see dealing with dental insurance as all bad.

“Patients with dental insurance coverage are much more likely to agree to a treatment plan,” responded one dentist.
