Dental Plans vs. Dental Insurance North Las Vegas NV

Well, you can consider a dental discount plan. A dental discount plan is NOT insurance. In fact, it is more like being a member of a group-buying club. Fundamentally, what you get is a discount on your dental services. With the power of the group behind them, the founders of such plans have negotiated a reduced fee for service with dentists who are part of the discount plan. Dentists in the plan will consider this lower fee to be equivalent to payment in full.

Dental Plans vs. Dental Insurance

If you don't have insurance through your employer, or are self-employed, you may be struggling with getting a reasonably priced dental insurance plan. The costs of an individual policy can be quite high and the coverage is likely to be less than you'd get with any group plan or employer plan.

What are your options?

Well, you can consider a dental discount plan. A dental discount plan is NOT insurance. In fact, it is more like being a member of a group-buying club.

With the power of the group behind them, the founders of such plans have negotiated a reduced fee for service with dentists who are part of the discount plan. Dentists in the plan will consider this lower fee to be equivalent to payment in full. You will get that discount on the spot. You don't have to wait for reimbursement from your insurance.
