Q?

What is a “Discount” Dental Plan?

A.

The concept of a Discount Dental Plan is to provide individuals, families and small groups dental coverage at a discount. The general dentists participating in our discount dental plan have agreed to accept a discounted fee as payment in full for each service performed.

Q?

Is a discounted fee plan considered insurance?

A.

Lifetime Dental Plan, a discounted fee plan, is not insurance. It was designed as an alternative to dental insurance.

Q?

How is a discounted plan different from traditional insurance?

A.

Lifetime Dental Plan has many of the same benefits and few of the restrictions of traditional health insurance. It has a higher level of benefits in certain areas, such as no yearly maximum, no pre-existing clause, and no waiting periods. You will find the plan is easy to understand and without “fine print”, claim forms, pre-approvals or other cumbersome bureaucracy.

Q?

What do I pay?

A.

Your dental plan membership fee, plus the discounted fees you will be charged for dental services. That’s all you pay!

Q?

When do I become an active member?

A.

Within days after your payment is received you will receive your packet of information including your membership card. Your membership card will have an activation date printed on it. You can begin using your dental discount plan according to that date. There is no 30-day or 90-day waiting period or background checks.

Q?

What is a participating provider?

A.
