At Compassionate Dental Care, we know it’s important for people to have access to affordable dental care so they can properly take care of their teeth. One way we help them do that is by taking Humana dental insurance. If you have a plan with Humana, you’ll be able to get a variety of free and discounted services that will help your dental care fit easily into your budget.
What it Means to be a Humana Dentist in Lake in the Hills
Dr. Tim Stirneman is proud to call himself a Humana dentist. What does that mean? It means Humana, the third largest health insurance company in the nation, has closely looked at Compassionate Dental Care and decided that the skills of its doctors and the quality of their facility makes them one of the best places for the people of Lake in the Hills to take care of their teeth. Because of this, Humana has decided to partner with them and make them part of their care provider network. This means Humana has agreed to pay for part of the services provided by Compassionate Dental Care to people with Humana plans. They also set the prices for these services, which are greatly reduced as well. This is what makes Compassionate Dental Care “in-network” with Humana, and you can read a more in-depth explanation of what this means right here.
The key is that with Humana and Compassionate Dental Care, you can now enjoy benefits that will significantly reduce the amount you have to pay at your next dental visit.
The Benefits of Seeing a Humana Dentist in Lake in the Hills
Humana has 3 different dental plans, and they can be used by an individual, spouses, or entire families. You can usually have a dental plan added to your overall health insurance, but in Illinois, you can actually buy a dental plan as a standalone policy as well.
The main benefit of these plans is that they completely cover (or deeply discount) preventive services like dental cleanings, check-ups, and x-rays. These are some of the most effective tools in dentistry and are very important for maintaining your oral health year after year. This is why Dr. Stirneman recommends that patients of all ages should have at least two hygiene check-ups per year. Interestingly enough, most plans practically pay for themselves just by getting these two standard visits.
But, the benefits also extend to other services as well. Treatments such as fillings, crowns, bridges, and orthodontics can be discounted up to 50%. This is in addition to the greatly reduced prices, so it’s easy to save hundreds if not thousands of dollars with each treatment. All in all, you’ll now be able to completely take care of your teeth without having to worry about your finances.
WHAT IF I DON’T HAVE HUMANA DENTAL INSURANCE?
This is OK! If you don’t already have Humana dental insurance, there are two easy ways you can get it:
- Call and ask your employer if you can add a Humana dental insurance plan to your employee health coverage.
- Call Humana or visit humana.com to view, choose, and sign up for a plan
Most plans have very low monthly payments, and with the Humana Dental Savings Plan, you can start using your benefits almost immediately without having to pay a deductible.
