Tips for Choosing an In-Network Provider

Dentist and patient smiling

Whether you’re looking for a dentist close to home, one with great recommendations from patients, or a dentist office with flexible office hours that fit your schedule, we make it easy to find dental care providers.

Learn how to find an in-network provider and why choosing an in-network dentist can help you save money. Talk about something worth smiling about!

What Does “In-Network Dentist” Mean?

An in-network dentist means that your dentist is part of your dental plan, and they have agreed to provide you with dental care at your plan’s rate. An out-of-network dentist is separate from your dental plan and has not agreed to pre-established rates for treatment. You may choose to see an out-of-network dentist, but you may pay end up paying more out of your own pocket.

The difference in fees between in- and out-of-network dentists is often called a “discount” or “network savings.” Those with TruAssure plans save an average of 20-40% by choosing network dentists. See how you can save money by visiting a network dentist.

Why Choose an “In-Network” Dentist

One of the best ways to get the most value out of your dental coverage is to visit a dentist who participates in your plan’s network. In-network dentists sign an agreement with us to:

  • Provide treatment according to administrative guidelines for each plan.
  • Accept their contracted fees as payment in full.
  • Provide services at discounted rates.
  • File all claim forms for you.

In other words, it’s easier for you and can reduce your out-of-pocket costs. What’s not to love?

How To Find a Provider

Depending on what’s best for you, choose a dentist near your home or work so that getting to and from your appointments is a breeze.

TruAssure makes finding a dentist near you easy with our ‘Find A Provider’ search tool. This tool can help you search for in-network dentists within a certain radius of your home or workplace. From this online portal, select your member type, set search criteria, and enter the requested information. You will have the option to search by location, provider name, or office name. Also available is the opportunity to search for an in-network specialty dentist, such as an oral surgeon or pediatric dentist.

Review your policy or contact TruAssure to see if visiting a specialist requires a referral. Always be sure to verify your dentist’s network participation before you schedule your appointment.

*All TruAssure dental plans, other than Basic and Preferred dental plans, are offered in association with the DenteMax Plus dental network arrangement, which includes participating dentists from the DenteMax, United Concordia, and Connection dental networks.
