Secondary insurance, or “supplemental insurance,” can greatly reduce your medical costs, but in most cases, secondary dental insurance does not exist. (The one exception being indemnity policies available at the high cost of $300+ per month.)
If you are looking for another way to save on dentist bills, you should know that dental discount plans are the most cost-effective way to receive discounts in addition to any coverage you already have.
While dentist offices typically accept only one plan per visit, you can, however, strategically use different plans on different visits. By gaining a discount dental plan in addition to the coverage you already have, you may gain more freedom to save on more procedures!
Instead of secondary dental insurance, using a dental discount plan to supplement your primary coverage is typically cheap and easy. Finding the right discount program may require a bit more research before your appointment, but can be well worth your time and energy.
