Insurance


Dental Insurance is different from Medical Insurance. Many patients aren’t familiar with the specifics of their dental insurance benefits. Your dental benefits are based on the agreement your employer negotiated with your insurance carrier. Please review the insurance benefit booklet provided by your employer to better understand the benefits they make available as part of your insurance coverage. The patient payment portion covered for procedures varies depending on the coverage provided by your employer. An estimate of the amount covered by your insurance company will be provided at the time of your treatment, based on the information they provide to us. The estimate is never a guarantee of benefits or the amount that will be paid. We will file all insurance claims as a courtesy to our patients. This does not however, transfer the responsibility of your financial obligation to the insurance company. If the amount paid by the insurance company is less than or greater than the estimate, then you will be billed the difference or issued a credit on the account in the event of an overpayment. Please let us know if you have questions about our financial policies or financing options prior to your treatment.

We currently participate with Anthem, Blue Cross / Blue Shield, Delta Dental, Mashantucket, United Concordia, Aetna (Extend Network only), and Cigna. We are happy to complete and submit claims for all other private dental insurances. When there is an estimated co-pay, we ask that it be paid at the time of service. We do not participate with state Medicaid programs.

Beachcrest Dental is happy to offer our patients CareCredit, North America’s leader in patient payment plans. CareCredit lets you begin your treatment immediately, then pay for it with low interest-free monthly payments that fit easily into your monthly budget.
