MetLife Coverage Availability & Fees
MetLife insurance is designed to help you maximize your oral health while minimizing your out-of-pocket expense. By paying your monthly premiums and yearly deductible, you have access to routine dental checkups, procedures, and all necessary services in between to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
MetLife Dental offers PPO plans for individuals and families, which provides you access to an extensive network of dentists and specialists, like Dr. Richard Gochman. Depending on your specific policy, you may benefit from:
- 100% coverage for preventive care, including cleanings, checkups, and x-rays.
- 30% to 45% lower dental fees for restorative services, like fillings or root canals.
To make the most of your coverage, it is recommended that you choose a dentist who is in your network, like Dr. Gochman. This means he has pre-negotiated rates with your insurance company to reduce the amount that you will have to pay out-of-pocket.
As an in-network dentist, he will help you maximize the value of your policy. With yearly maximums and limits strictly enforced, he will help you utilize your policy during a calendar year to keep your care affordable, even if that means splitting treatments if your benefits are about to expire for the year.
Although it is recommended that you choose an in-network dentist, you still have the freedom to choose one who is not; however, you will have to pay the difference between their fees and your insurance’s allowable coverage.
