Dental Discount Cards

Discount dental plans are becoming a very popular way to supplement true dental costs. In many cases these discount cards can give you most of the services needed at a fraction of the cost. Small employers are making the change from true Dental Insurance programs over to dental discount cards to help their bottom line. The unemployed and self-employed are also making use of them as a less expensive way to maintain oral health. In response to this demand, a wide range of plans is available for you to choose.

Discount dental plans offer reduced rates to members, who pay an annual fee. The plan administrator negotiates the reductions, which range from 20 to 60 percent of "reasonable and customary" charges for each procedure. In return for offering reduced rates, the practitioners get referrals from the program.

Choosing the right Discount Dental Plan
There are so many plans available, choosing among them requires some thought, but not all that much. Procedures and treatments offered vary from plan to plan; so take into consideration what you are most likely to need. If you have growing children, for instance, orthodontia should probably be covered in the plan you choose. If you are a senior citizen, orthodontia is unnecessary, but you should choose a plan with coverage for periodontal procedures, crowns, bridges and dentures. Make sure to pick and choose the best benefits that fit your individual need.

There are several websites that can help you compare costs and services available. When you enter your zip code, you will see a chart that presents summarized information for plans available in your area. Remember that the lowest fees might not be the best choice if necessary services aren't covered. Your choice should be balanced between costs and your likely usage.
