Do you take my insurance? Why?
That depends on what exactly you are asking. If you are asking if we are in your insurance company’s network of preferred providers and you have Blue Cross/Blue Shield, we are in-network. Also, if you have Delta Dental we are a premier network provider. If you have any other insurance provider, we gladly submit to your insurance but as out-of-network providers. We no longer take Medicaid but can direct you to providers who do.
Preferred providers are contracted with individual insurance companies to provide dental care to their members usually at a discount in price. Even if a dentist is not a preferred provider, they can accept your insurance, they just are not under contract with that particular company and can charge their full fee.
We are in-network with Blue Cross/Blue Shield and in Delta Dental Premier Network because these are the two most common dental insurers in our area and because the discount in fees is reasonable. As a tradeoff, Blue Cross/Blue Shield and Delta Dental directs members to us as in-network providers.
If you have questions or concerns about your insurance, please don’t hesitate to call Chappell Family Dentistry and a helpful member of our team will be happy to assist you!
