Services related to the surgical placement of a dental implant are usually limited to one per year with replacement of a surgical implant frequency limitation of usually one every 10 years. Impalnt crown replacement is usually limited to every 5 years if unserviceable and cannot be repaired. The frequency limitations of certain other implant covered services are set forth in Metlife fee schedule.

How much is Metlife office visit co-payment

For in-network provider the co-payment for the first visit is $0. The MetLife Dental Copay Plan is a dental plan in which you make a copayment based on a fee schedule, called the Procedure Charge Schedule. Our Procedure Charge Schedule is based on our ZIP code 33324 where our dental’s office is located. Each time you need dental care, you can visit any licensed dentist you choose. However, if you visit a MetLife preferred network provider like our office in Plantation, you save money since providers in the network charge lower negotiated rates. If you visit an out-of-network provider you must meet an annual deductible, you pay a higher copay and your annual maximum benefit is reduced.  You can compare Metlife Dental Copay Plan benefits to the other dental plan to determine if it will meet your dental needs.

An office visit co-payment is a fixed dollar amount or a percentage that you pay for each dentist visit or for each dental service provided. For example, with some plans you may pay a fixed amount such as$0, $5 or $10 per visit.

Other plans will charge you a percentage of the total fee - or dental co-insurance -- for the visit. So if your co-payment is 10% and the dentist visit was $200, you would pay 10% which, in this case, would be $20.

When you receive dental services from a participating Metlife dentist, you are responsible for the co-payment for any covered services you receive. There are no annual maximums, deductibles or claim forms to complete. For Florida residents, if you or your family members receive a dental service not listed on the MetLife Schedule of Benefits, you will save on your out-of-pocket costs—25% off the Metlife provider’s usual and customary fee for the service.

How much is a Metlife dental Insurance deductible?

A MetLife dental insurance deductible is the amount of annual dental expenses that a MetLife dental plan member must pay before the plan will begin to cover expenses. For example, if your plan has a $50 deductible, you will pay the first $50 of your dental expenses before your dental plan begins paying the expenses.

Only expenses for covered services apply towards Insurance deductible. For example, if you paid $1,000 for Wisdom teeth extraction that was not an expense covered by MetLife dental insurance plan, then the $1,000 will not apply toward your annual deductible.
