Is it a good idea to get an estimate of dental charges beforehand?
Blue Cross strongly recommends getting an estimate so that benefit questions are answered before your treatment begins. Your dentist may submit an estimate of benefits request to Blue Cross for any dental service or series of services for which the total charge will exceed $500. It is important that any cast or porcelain restorations, prosthetic appliances or periodontal surgeries be sent for an estimate of dental benefits.
How long is the estimate valid?
What happens if the treatment changes after I get an estimate?
Ask your dentist to submit a revised plan.
