How BlueCross/BlueShield Can Help You

There is no greater feeling than knowing you are covered should you face a significant problem with your oral health. While preventive care is the most effective way to prevent serious issues from occurring, there are situations that are unexpected and unavoidable. Fortunately, as a BlueCross/BlueShield dentist in Medfield, Dr. Hirshfield and his team are here to deliver the treatment you need at an affordable rate. As an in-network professional, Dr. Hirshfield’s pre-negotiated rates make it possible for you to avoid additional out-of-pocket expenses while caring for your smile. If you’re unsure how to maximize your benefits or want to learn which treatments are covered by your BlueCross/BlueShield dental insurance, contact us today and let us help you navigate the financial side of dentistry.

BlueCross/BlueShield Coverage Availability & Fees

No matter if your dental insurance in Medfield is available through an employer or was purchased individually, the reality is that it is probably different from a colleague or neighbor. However, although your premiums, deductibles, and annual maximums may vary, the benefits are largely the same when choosing to see an in-network dentist. These often include:

  • 80-100% preventive care (cleanings, checkups)
  • 70-80% minor restorative services (fillings)
  • 50-70% major restorative services (dental crowns, bridges, and implants)

Your coverage through BlueCross/BlueShield depends on your plan and the treatment you receive; however, by choosing to see someone in-network with your insurance, you can expect to save money and have your insurer pay more of the cost for the services you receive. But this does not mean you have to see an in-network dentist. Should you choose to see someone out of network, you will still be covered, but you will likely be expected to pay more for treatment.

As a BlueCross/BlueShield policyholder, you can expect your plan to operate on a calendar year, which means you will want to use your benefits before they expire. Our team is here to ensure you take advantage of your plan, so you can minimize your out-of-pocket expenses while achieving a healthier smile.
