How do you select a company for Dental Insurance?
Last year for the first time I had to research and select a company to get extended health and dental insurance for my family. Up until last year I had always received group benefits from my employer so there was never any need for me to research such insurance companies. However now that I too like my husband am self employed we had to get extended health and dental insurance as paying for these expenses without it was far too costly.
Let me tell it it was a bit of a headache as there are only about three-four that I could select from where we live and ascertaining what each one covered and comparing them was a headache. There were some major differences and not each company provided a nice handy dandy chart listing their coverage so that I could compare it easily. In fact the one company that didn’t provide it I ruled them out that way as I thought that was poor customer service.
I would have loved it if there had been a company that provided a free service where yo could compare dental insurance plans and get quotes for those plans. Fortunately for those of you in the US there is such a company and since it’s free it’s definitely worth checking out. So if you want a free quote and comparison of dental insurance plans you may want to give them a try HERE.
You’re already ahead than I was with this handy tool, let me know how it goes if you do try it out. What factors do you include when selecting a dental insurance company? Feel free to comment below.
