Dental Insurance - Fee for Service

Fee for service dental insurance plans assume that each time you see a medical professional you will pay the fee. As a patient, you have your choice of physician or professional. You then submit a claim report to the dental insurance company. While this type of plan does not restrict the patient regarding doctor selection it can restrict the type of treatment that will be reimbursed.

Within the Fee for Service policy you can have two kinds of payment structures for dental procedures:

Dental Insurance - Direct Reimbursement
With direct reimbursement dental insurance plans you pay upfront and the dental insurers will reimburse you. In most of these dental insurance plans you will be reimbursed based on the number of dollars spent as opposed to by procedure type. You will have complete freedom to choose the Dentist of your choice.

Dental Insurance - Indemnity
