Insurance Policy

Our office accepts and will file insurance for all qualified PPO plans. We will be happy to take assignment o PPO plans as long as the insurance provider will make payment to the provider. (Several Deltal Dental plans will only pay the patient or insured.) If you have any questions, please call us and we will contact your insurance carrier to see what coverage you have. Our office does not participate in any PPO plans, we will file your claim for you, and accept assignment (except as noted above), however the balance the insurance does not pay will be the responsibility of the patient or guarantor. Dental insurance is unlike medical in that there is usually very little if any difference between in and out of network benefits. A Patient with a PPO plan will usually have a difference on a cleaning of $0.00 to $10.00. The other difference is if your company offers a High and a Low Plan, and you choose the low plan, you will see much larger differences. I understand your premium is much lower and if you usually do not have any dental problems, and are not accident prone, you may come out better off financially. If you have multiple crowns and fillings, or have diabetes, or had chemo or radiation, you would probably be better off with the “High” plans.

The biggest difference is that Dr. Ruehle believes that when there are choices in treatments, the in network provider may only give you the options your insurance company will pay for. With our office you will receive ALL the options and YOU may choose which option you prefer. The choice should be yours, not your insurance company’s.
