MetLife Coverage Availability & Fees
If you have MetLife dental insurance in Edmond, you understand that it is a contract between you, your employer, and the insurance company. Not only do you agree to pay a monthly premium for access to your dental benefits, but you also agree to meet your deductible before your insurance will begin to pay more for the services you receive.
Not all plans are alike, which is why you will find that premiums, deductibles, and annual maximums are different depending on the policy you choose. However, many of the benefits remain the same, some of which might look like the following:
- 100% Preventive Services (i.e., regular dental checkups and cleanings)
- 70-80% Minor Restorative Services (i.e., dental fillings)
- 50% Major Restorative Services (i.e., tooth extraction, root canal)
Because Dr. Smith is in-network with MetLife dental insurance, his negotiated fees and services will have you saving lots of money should you require preventive, restorative, or other more complex treatments. Of course, it is strongly advised that you keep your twice-yearly checkups and cleanings to avoid more serious problems later on. However, should an issue develop along the way, as long as you’ve met your deductible, you can expect MetLife to come in and pay a majority of the overall cost. Of course, this is also determined based on your annual maximum and how much of it you have already used.
Since this is the allotted amount that your dental insurance company agrees to pay in a single calendar year, we may need to spread out your treatments across calendar years to keep you from paying more out of pocket.
