Visits to the dentist can be expensive. From preventive care to major services, dental insurance is a smart way to help protect your smile and your pocketbook. Smiles are free, but they are worth a lot. While costs will vary based on where you live, the average family of four spends $1,824 a year on Dental services.
How it Works
While eating dinner one evening Katie bites down and breaks a crown. The next day, Katie visits her dentist, who participates in the MetLife network.
The going rate for a crown in her area is about $1,462. But since Katie’s participating dentist has agreed to provide the service for $680 for TakeAlong Dental policyholders and their covered dependents, and Katie’s plan covers 50% for this type of procedure, Katie’s out-of-pocket costs are only $340, that’s a savings of $1,122!
Depending on the fees her dentist charges, this bill could have cost Katie over a thousand dollars. By using a participating dentist, Katie maximizes her plan benefits and pays less than a quarter of the typical cost.
