Are Dental Implants Covered by Insurance?
Patients often ask whether dental implants are covered by insurance? The answer is that it depends?
Many companies that provide dental insurance maintain that dental implants are a cosmetic dental procedure and not “necessary” and therefore not covered. However, there are a few insurance providers that do cover implants to some extent. It just depends on your insurance carrier.
Another question we get asked frequently is whether a patient who is planning on having implants placed can switch from an insurance provider who not does cover implants to one that does.
Unfortunately, the typical answer to that question is “no”. The reason is due to the fact that many dental insurance policies have exclusions for pre-existing conditions. In addition, many policies contain caps which limit the amount of coverage available in any calender year. Therefore, even if your policy does cover dental implants the likelihood is that you would max out your coverage.
