Alexandria, VA -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/28/2016 -- Even with the Affordable Care Act (ACA) available for medical insurance, there is a major gap in dental care for adults. Dental coverage, with some exceptions, isn't covered under ACA.
Human resources managers have reported that dental insurance premiums and benefits being paid by the insurance companies are not balancing out, leaving the patient with a large bill to pay. Many employers who often pay the employee's dental insurance premiums are dropping the insurance coverage because the cost is going up. For care that goes beyond the routine cleanings, x-rays and exams, industry reports show that most plans limit coverage to $1,500 a year.
Patients at Alexandria Old Town Dental in Alexandria, VA now have an option which not all dentists offer. It is an In-House Dental Coverage Plan that many patients have joined and are already saving money. They pay a one-time fee for the year and the plan offers a number of benefits at no extra charge. These benefits include a comprehensive exam and a dental cleaning once every six months and a complete set of x-rays every 12 months.
Many other services including crowns, bridges, periodontal treatment and fillings are performed at 20 percent off the regular price. According to Forbes Magazine, dental treatments become more expensive as individuals age and require more expensive procedures. The In-House Dental Coverage Plan would be beneficial for this category of patients.
Patients can join the low-cost dental plan for a nominal membership fee. The plan entitles them to preventive dental care at no additional charge. Corrective services are available for small co-payments that are significantly discounted.
The Alexandria Old Town Dental In-House Dental Coverage plan asks no health questions and no one can be denied coverage. Patients have no deductibles and they cannot be singled out for rate increases or cancellations. This plan can't be overused.
