As a courtesy, we try our best to verify all codes prior to you coming in to avoid any surprises! Some plans such as: Alberta Blue Cross, Green Shield, Co-Operators and Canada Life have services available to dental providers to verify your coverage. Unfortunately, some other providers such as Claims Secure have very strict privacy rules where they will only release this information to the subscriber of the plan, not the dental office. This means it is not always possible for us to verify on your behalf.
Why does my insurance plan only cover an exam every 9 months, but my dentist wants me to come every 6?
A dentist’s first priority is your health. Your dentist will first present a plan based on your oral health needs, which may or may not be covered by your dental plan. Your dentist can do their best to work within your plan whenever possible.
