Today, a very small number of health insurance companies will reimburse you for your dental procedures performed outside your country.
Moreover, you have to call your insurance company to find out whether it will reimburse your dental treatments abroad. You will be responsible for a co-pay depending on the insurance coverage you have. You may have to pay for your treatments yourself and file for reimbursement once the procedures are done. All your dental records shall be given to you for reimbursement filing.
Those insurance companies that do pay for dental procedures overseas typically pay only for the dental care procedure and do not reimburse the travel and lodging expenses. You may, however, be able to pay for your overseas dental treatment with your cash, credit cards or through accredited dental financing company.
It is good to maximize your dental insurance for the current year or lose it. Patient who may be needing a comprehensive treatment procedure and need to use his current and next year insurance coverage may opt to schedule a treatment at the end of the current year and beginning of the succeeding year (Dec and Jan). A better way to have a Smile Make Over using your dental insurance benefits an in an affordable and enjoyable way.
