Patient update from Beverly Hills Dental Health and Wellness

During this unsettling time of COVID19 restrictions, we would like to assure you that providing a safe and healthy environment for our patients and staff is our top priority. We are now doing COVID-19 antibody testing at the office.

We take every precaution in our office to keep everyone safe. Our usual guidelines include universal precautions, frequent handwashing, and frequent sanitizing of all patient areas. We added an ozone/UV air purifier, ozone water in all our units and as a rinse, and of course, we practice social distancing here as much as possible. We are also checking everyone’s temperature as they walk in the door to make sure there are no infected patients being treated.

If you have a dental emergency, please do not hesitate to call us either to see us in person or have a phone consultation. We are open to answer your calls from Monday through Friday 8:00 am to 5:00 pm

We hope that each of you will stay safe & healthy as we navigate this complex situation together.

Sincerely,
Dr. Sanda Moldovan & her staff at Beverly Hills Dental Health and Wellness

Notice to all PPO Dental Insurance members

Let me help you get to know your insurance

Dental insurance has been the same coverage since the 60’s. Maximums back then at $1500/2000 was a lot, now not so much. Luckily being a multi speciality office, it’s easy to “max out on your maximum.”

When you are ready to call and obtain your information from the insurance company, locate the number on the back of your card, or if you do not have a card, can contact your HR for this information.

These are the things to ask for and obtain for your records, and for the receptionist that would be billing on your behalf.

  • ID number or subscriber ID # (if you have MetLife they need a social)
  • If the plan is through a spouse, please provide the receptionist with the spouses name and date of birth.
  • Group number
  • Address to mail the claims

Things that you should know for yourself and can easily obtain by calling the insurance are:

  • What is the maximum?
  • What amount do I have remaining?
  • Does this run on a calendar year, or month to what month?
  • Is the deductible waived on preventative?
  • Are major services covered right away, if not how long would you wait to start utilizing the plan to the max?
  • What are my out of network benefits? Are they different from in network coverage?

What is the % of coverage for the procedures listed in bold below:

Diagnostic and preventive procedures, such as cleanings and checkups, are typically covered at the highest percentage (for example, 80% to 100% of the plan’s contract allowance). How often can I be seen? This verbiage is called frequency.

Basic procedures, such as fillings and gum treatment, are usually reimbursed at a slightly lower percentage (for example, 70% to 80%).

Major procedures, such as crowns and root canals, are usually reimbursed at the lowest percentage (for example, 50%).

Procedures can fall under a different category depending on your plan. Please see your plan booklet or Policy for a complete description of benefits, limitations and exclusions.

Deductible

Similar to car insurance, this is the amount you pay before your benefit plan begins to pay the cost of your dental treatment. A deductible usually doesn’t apply to diagnostic and preventive treatment. But check on this because sometimes preventive isn’t waived.

Being a holistic office be mindful certain procedures we bill for will not be covered, we still try, in hopes that someday they will recognize these procedures should be a covered benefit. ie not covered are ozone, PRF, etc.

What is helpful is when we do a treatment plan, the codes are attached to this plan and you can call the insurance and find out with that specific code, what the coverage would be, ask if there is any restrictions.

The code would start with a letter D*** ie D0120, D4910.

Thank you for taking the time to get know your insurance.
