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 planning on having implants placed can switch from an insurance provider that does not cover implants to one that does.
Unfortunately, the typical answer to that question is “no.” The reason is that many dental insurance policies have exclusions for pre-existing conditions. In addition, many policies contain caps limiting the coverage available in any calendar year. Therefore, even if your policy does cover dental implants, you would likely max out your coverage.
