Sometimes I make mistakes that are beyond my belief.
Hearing radio commercials on my favorite talk station for Physicians’ Mutual Insurance Co.’s dental insurance plan, Patty and I signed up.
Recently we both had our teeth cleaned and the first visit, state-required x-rays done.
Physicians’ Mutual Insurance Co.’s dental plan is generously paying a grand total of $110.00 leaving us with a balance due our dentist of $474.00
One procedure that Physicians’ Mutual declined entirely is called “debridement.” I’ve never heard of it, so I looked it up. It’s the scraping of the plaque that has accumulated on the teeth and around the gums. It’s the integral part of the teeth cleaning procedure.
We would have been smarter to self-insure, and that is what we will do from this point forward.
