Did you know that your MEDICAL INSURANCE could be billed in order to cover your DENTAL work? The criteria for a dental service to be considered for payment through your medical insurance is simple: it must be a medically necessary service that is based upon a medical diagnosis. A medically necessary service could be translated into services such as exams, consultations for oral-facial medical exams, oral surgery procedures, periodontal work, dental implants, etc.
You may be wondering what the advantages are to using your MEDICAL INSURANCE over your DENTAL INSURANCE…
