If my coverage percentages are the same for In-network and Out-of-network, what is the benefit of seeing an INN provider?

*Sometimes, there will be a contrast between in-network and out-of-network coverage. If you visit an out-of-network provider, you may be balance billed for the difference between Beam's contribution and your dentist's fees. 

An example of this would be that we have contracted fees between us and In-network providers. So If a cleaning at an In-network provider is 100, we know that and will cover 100% of the treatment (if your preventive % is 100) BUT if you go Out-of-network and the cleaning is 150, but we only cover 100 - we will cover 100% of that $100.00 and you would pay the remainder. 

If you'd like to get a better sense of the cost before treatment, you can ask your dentist for a pre-treatment estimate. They can submit it to us like a claim, and we'll process the estimate in 3-4 weeks. 

In addition, if you don’t see your dentist on our ‘Find a Dentist’ page, they can email us at support@beam.dental to learn how to become in-network with us!
