Dental care: Many patients believe that their
insurance pays 90%-100% of all dental fees.
In reality, most plans only pay between 50%-80% of
the insurance company's predetermined fee
schedule. Some pay more, some pay less.
Both the fee schedule and the percentage paid is
usually determined by how much you or your
employer has paid for coverage or the type of
You may have noticed that your dental insurer generally reimburses you or the dentist at a lower rate
than the dentist's actual fee. Frequently, insurance companies state that the reimbursement was
reduced because your dentist's fee has exceeded the usual, customary, or reasonable fee ("UCR")

insurance company is unreasonable or well above what most dentists in the area charge for a certain
service. This can be very misleading and simply is not accurate.
