All of us at Maspeth Dental want to make your visit to our office as pleasant as possible. With this in mind, we are an in-network dental provider with several insurance carriers including Cigna. By choosing an in-network dentist, you’ll be able to take care of your family’s smiles at a lower cost. You’ll also find that we offer a comprehensive menu of covered preventive and restorative services.
What does being an in-network Cigna dentist mean? Simply put, we have negotiated pre-set fees for covered services. Therefore, you’ll likely have a lower starting cost and end up spending less on your family’s dental care in the long run. We are contractually obligated to charge no more than the set fee, so you never need to worry about hidden charges. Your only financial responsibility is the coinsurance payment at the time of service and your annual deductible.
As a courtesy to you, Maspeth Dental will file all of your Cigna dental insurance claim forms. This way we can help you receive the maximum allowable benefits for any particular dental treatment. All paperwork and online reporting is handled right here in the office.
Your Cigna dental benefits provide coverage for preventive care including dental cleanings and examinations as well as annual digital x-rays. Like your Maspeth dentist, Cigna understands the advantage of prevention, which can help you avoid serious dental problems. To encourage subscribers to schedule checkups regularly throughout the year, benefits are limited and expire annually. In other words, the benefits you don’t use disappear at the end of the calendar year. Therefore, your smile and your budget stand to benefit when you diligently schedule dental checkups every six months.
Your Cigna dental insurance benefits also cover a number of restorative treatments such as tooth-colored fillings, dental crowns and dentures. Repairing, rebuilding and replacing missing teeth not only restores your healthy smile, but also helps to prevent the spread of dental disease that could require more invasive treatment. Similarly, periodontal therapy is often covered to ensure gum health, an integral component of your oral and general health. The same bacteria that can lead to periodontal disease has also been linked to several bodily ailments including high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, pneumonia, diabetes and more.
Maspeth Dental is happy to answer questions you might have about your Cigna dental coverage. We can also give you an estimate of your out-of-pocket expense for any covered procedure. Please call our office to schedule a dental checkup or any other type of dental service you or a family member needs.
