Dental Insurance

Insurance Information

At the dental practice of Dr. Marvin Winter, we work with our patients to ensure they receive the most from their benefits. If you have any questions about your dental health insurance or how your plan covers your dental care, or if you haven't received a clear understanding from your insurance company, you are welcome to give us a call at (404) 373-2667, and we will try our best to help explain.

How Your Dental Health Insurance Works

Dental insurance can be confusing, but we want you to understand how your dental health insurance works. The more informed you are regarding your coverage, the more you'll know about how to maximize your insurance policy. Your dental plan is a form of compensation provided by your employer or plan sponsor. You can expect your insurance company to reimburse you for a portion of our fees. However, be aware that reimbursement portions are determined by the contract between your employer and the insurance company.

Processing Your Dental Health Insurance Claims

Although we are not a party to the contractual arrangement with your insurance company, the staff at our dental practice want to help you receive the maximum reimbursement to which you are entitled. As a convenience to you, we will help you process your insurance claims in order for you to receive the maximum benefit. We will also gladly provide dental x-rays and a written diagnostic report should your insurance company have any questions about the services provided. Dr. Marvin Winter and his team always do their best to make sure our patients receive the most coverage possible allowed through their dental health insurance plans.

Important Information about Your Dental Health Insurance

Some plans require you to choose your dental care from a list of providers, which can often limit your choices, and potentially affect whether or not you’re receiving the best dental care possible.

The dental practice of Dr. Marvin Winter is not a participating provider for any insurance company. We are considered “out of network,” therefore most dental insurance plans pay only a portion of your fees. We urge you to be fully aware of the provisions of your dental health insurance plan.

Please be advised that some, and perhaps all, of the services provided at our dental office may be non-covered services and not considered reasonable and customary under the terms of your insurance policy. Unfortunately, most dental health insurance companies arbitrarily determine these usual and customary rates, and you must be prepared to pay all fees associated with your dental care, regardless of your dental health insurance’s policies. It’s important to understand the limits and expectations of your dental health insurance plan, especially before you approve of treatment plans or attend visits with Dr. Winter.
