Just how outrageous is dental “insurance?” Check this out!

As a practicing dentist for almost 11 years now, in a practice that does accept assignment of dental insurance benefits, I have seen almost every conceivable attempt by dental insurance companies to hold up payment, deny payment, or anything they can do to keep the money that should rightfully help pay for your dental care.  But this one took the cake for me, and I have to share.  Which insurance company?  Metlife.  Seriously……..they said there was not enough missing tooth structure due to decay or fracture on these teeth, and therefore they don’t need crowns.  Are they CRAZY!!!!!?!?!?!?!?

Amazing - a dental insurance company said these broken and decayed teeth don't need crowns.  Can you believe it?
