Dental Insurance Kids – Looking for low-income family dental insurance 

Friday, Jun. 21st 2024 6:58 AM

Question: My husband just lost his job. I am only working part-time, and we have two kids under ten. We were a low-income household before my husband got laid off; now, we hardly get by each day. My husband is looking for a full-time job. In the meantime, I would like to know if we could get any low-income dental plans. 

Answer: When it comes to finding low-income dental insurance plans for your family, Dental HMO insurance plans are a good place to start. HMO plans typically have lower premiums and deductibles than other types of dental insurance plans, making them a more affordable option for low-income families. 

Another option to consider is dental discount plans. These plans are not insurance plans but they can help you save money on dental procedures by offering you discounts on dental services provided by participating dentists. 

You can research various dental insurance plans and dental discount plans to find one that fits your budget and provides the coverage your family needs. Some websites like healthcare.gov can help you compare different plans and find the best one for your family. 

In addition, you can also check with your state’s health department or local community health clinics to see if they offer any low-cost or free dental services for low-income families. Some dental schools also offer discounted dental services, so you can check with local dental schools in your area to see if they have any programs that may be helpful for your family.

You can call our member service line at 310-534-3444. Our team of experts can explain each plan’s various options and benefits and help you select the one that best fits your needs and budget.

Benefits of Dental Insurance – Dental Insurance Kids

Thursday, Jun. 13th 2024 5:50 AM

Dental insurance benefits vary depending on the type of dental insurance plan. When reviewing the benefits of dental insurance, especially when selecting a dental insurance plan, remember that there are various policy coverage options, dental plan deductibles, co-payments, limitations, restrictions, and exclusions.

It is vital to read the list of benefits the dental insurance provider provides and be sure you are getting a dental insurance plan if that is what you want to purchase.

A reminder: Discount dental plans are not dental insurance plans. A discount plan partners with specific dentists to provide customers with savings on visits to the dentist’s office, much like dental insurance. The downside to discount dental plans is that they are not regulated, and you have limited recourse if you experience dental problems.

Dental Insurance Kids – Should Dentures be Worn at Bedtime?

Tuesday, Jun. 11th 2024 10:32 AM

Dentures are custom-made appliances that replace missing teeth and the surrounding gum tissues. They are usually worn daily to help restore the mouth’s functionality, including chewing and speaking. However, wearing dentures while sleeping is generally not recommended because it can lead to discomfort, irritation, and other issues.

Wearing dentures for an extended period can cause pressure on the gum tissues, leading to soreness, inflammation, and even infection. Additionally, dentures worn for long periods can cause bone loss in the jaw, resulting in a change in facial structure over time.

Removing your dentures before bed and storing them in a container with water or a denture cleaning solution is advisable. This will help keep them clean and free from bacteria while allowing your gum tissues to rest and recover from the pressure of wearing dentures.

Furthermore, removing your dentures at night also allows for regular stimulation and cleaning by the tongue and saliva, which can help keep your mouth healthy and prevent bad breath. So, following the recommended practice of removing your dentures before going to bed is essential.

Dental Insurance Kids – What happens when you get dentures?

Wednesday, Jun. 5th 2024 6:02 AM

Knowing what to expect during the process is essential if you or your child needs dentures. Full or partial dentures can replace your natural teeth, which may have been lost due to periodontal disease, tooth decay, or injury. Dentures can help improve your appearance and overall health. One of the benefits of dentures is that they can help support facial muscles, which can prevent sagging and make a person look older.

Typically, getting dentures takes about one month and involves 4-5 appointments. During the initial exam, your dentist will evaluate your oral health and determine if dentures are the right option. The next step involves taking wax bite impressions to create a mold of your mouth. This mold will be used to make your custom dentures. Finally, you will have several appointments for final adjustments to ensure your dentures fit comfortably and securely.

If you have dental insurance for you and your child, you must check what is covered under your plan. Some plans may cover a portion of the cost of dentures, while others may not. Be sure to talk to your dentist and insurance provider to understand your options and make the best decision for your child’s dental health.

Prevention is the Key to Good Oral Healthcare

Saturday, May. 18th 2024 7:27 AM

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 13% of children and teens have untreated cavities. Not having cavities treated by a dental professional can lead to more serious dental problems. Children with poor oral health are nearly three times more likely to miss school due to needing severe or emergency dental treatment. That accounts for almost one-fourth of missed school time for dental needs. The cost of dental care becomes more of an issue as simple filling turns into more significant, more costly dental care issues.

Why do some parents postpone dental care for their children?

There could be various reasons why parents postpone dental care for their children. One of the most common reasons is the fear of their child having a negative experience or feeling anxious during the dental visit. Additionally, some parents may not have dental insurance or may not be able to afford the cost of dental care. Others may forget or not prioritize dental appointments, especially if their child is not experiencing any pain or discomfort. However, it’s important to remember that regular dental checkups can prevent more serious dental issues from arising and can promote good oral health habits in children from a young age.

Dental Insurance Kids – What is the Age Limit for Children?

Tuesday, May. 14th 2024 5:32 AM

How Long Can I Stay on My Parents’ Dental Insurance?

Question: I am 18 but will soon be 19, and I want to know how long I can stay on my parents’ insurance. My parents are letting me stay on their plan for as long as I allow since it is cheaper for me that way. 

Reply:  Thank you for your question. It’s great that your parents allow you to stay on their dental insurance plan, which can be more affordable. 

Regarding your inquiry, the age limit for children to stay on their parents’ dental insurance varies depending on the plan and state laws. While most plans only allow dependents to remain on the plan until they turn 18, some insurers extend the age limit to 22 or 26 for full-time students or those with a certified disability. 

It’s important to note that the Affordable Care Act (ACA) only extends dependent coverage of medical health benefits to age 26, but it doesn’t apply to dental or vision insurance. Therefore, you should contact your parent’s dental insurance company to verify their age limit or review the policy. 

If you can not stay on the current dental plan, you can buy an individual dental insurance plan for yourself. If cost is an issue, consider reviewing an HMO insurance option, as they are typically the lower-cost option. You can call our member service line at 310-534-3444. Our team of experts can explain each plan’s various options and benefits and help you select the one that best fits your needs and budget.

Dental Insurance Kids – Searching for California Dental Insurance Plans  

Sunday, Feb. 12th 2023 2:42 PM

When shopping for dental insurance online, it can become overwhelming quickly if you are not sure what you want in an insurance plan.  Here are some quick tips that may help your search for a dental insurance plan for you and or your family. 

1) What you type in your search: When searching online try to be more specific in your search. Do not just type “dental insurance” or you will may get too large of a selection that may not even apply to you in your state.  Do put something like California Dental Insurance for individual and or family or California HMO or PPO dental insurance plans. By doing this you will hopefully only pull plans that you want and not plan in TX if you live in CA.  

2) Type of Dental Insurance:  Have an idea what type of dental insurance you are searching for such as HMO, PPO Indemnity and or even Discount Plans.  By searching for a plan type this will also help to to avoid pulling up say a dental discount plan when wanting dental insurance.   

3) Name of the Dental Plan: Sometime it is not good enough just to know the insurance company name in your search if you are looking for the insurance plan your dentist takes. Example, many dentist take Delta Dental, but just knowing that is not enough information to start your search since there are many different Delta Dental Plans (such as their PPO Plans Gold Diamond, and Platinum to name a few. Delta Dental also has HMO plans depending on the state you live in.)  Ask your dentist which Delta Dental plan they take so that you do not buy the wrong one. Many dental insurance companies offer multiple plan options with different plan names.   

4) Know what dental insurance plans your dental office accepts: Often times people already have a dentist they are seeing before having dental insurance, and it is important to that to stay with that dentist.  Keeping your own dentist is important since it can take time to build up trust and having to change providers is not something many people want to do when they are seeing a dentist they like. Therefore if that is the case with you save yourself so time. Before starting your dental insurance search online ask your dental office what plans they are a provider of so you are only looking for them and not wasting your time on plans they do not accept  

5) When in doubt ask: There is nothing wrong with asking questions before buying a dental insurance plan. If you are not sure about the dental plan you are reviewing, or if you do not understand the terms and conditions of the plan, call member services for help. Most dental insurance web sites have a member service line you can call before buying their plan. It is better you call and find out, then to buy a dental plan that does not work for your dental care needs.

Dental Insurance Kids – The Benefits of California Dental Insurance Plans.

Thursday, Feb. 9th 2023 6:39 AM

Sadly many people do not buy dental insurance when they are not receiving it from their employer.  They continue to go without dental insurance often times because they either feel they can afford their preventive care such as twice a year cleaning’s or they are going without dental care because their teeth are not bothering them and feel they do not need twice a year check ups.    

However the problem with that line of thinking is two fold. For the person that can afford preventive dental care, why pay for something when most insurance plans pay 100% for preventive dental care? Even low cost dental insurance plans such as HMO’s will normally have preventive dental care for free.  Also ask yourself will you still be able to pay for dental care out of pocket if you do need to have larger dental care needs. Dental care can become expensive quickly once you get beyond preventive dental care services.   

For the individuals that do not have dental insurance because they do not go to the dentist.  Sure it would be hard to say to buy something if you do not have intentions on using it. And in the short term this method may seem the best way in saving money.  However without regular dental visits you do put yourself at a higher risk of needing larger much more costly dental care needs.  Also when you wait to buy dental insurance until you are in need of larger dental care needs you limit the plans that can address your dental care due to the fact that many dental insurance plans have waiting periods for major dental care services. Delaying dental care in the end will be more expensive to you in the long run.

1) The HMO: Dental HMO are normally the more affordable dental insurance plan option. However, with an HMO you do need to choose a dentist within the plan network of providers and it important to understand there is no benefits/coverage if you go to a dentist not accepting the plan or is other out of the plan network.   

2) The PPO: Dental PPO insurance plans can tend to be more costly then the HMO plans but they normally will have a broader range of plan network providers. In additions dental PPO plan will normally provide coverage’s to out of network dentist though sometimes at a reduce coverage’s.  These types of plans may also come with waiting periods and yearly maximum dollar limitation that you need to be aware of. 

3) The Indemnity Plan: An indemnity dental insurance plan in many ways is like your PPO dental insurance plan with similar limitations.  However this types of dental insurance plans will normally not have a network of dental providers as they provide you a free choice of dentist. Meaning you can pick your own dentist without worry if they are a plan provider or not.
