What is primary and secondary dental insurance?

If a husband and wife both have dental insurance through their employers, the employee's insurance is primary when the employee is the patient, and it must pay it's benefits. The spouse's insurance is secondary, and will only pay once the primary insurance has paid. Depending on how the policy is written, sometimes the secondary insurance will pay any residual fees up to the annual maximum. Sometimes the secondary insurance only pays if their fee schedule allows higher fees than the primary insurance. This assumes that each spouse is named as a dependent on each other's policy. Ask the insurance coordinator at your dental office to what benefits are available between the two policies.

You have Medicare as primary insurance and BCBS as secondary insurance Do you pay the copay on the secondary insurance?

The answer to this question depends on what kind of secondary insurance you have - is it a group health plan? Is it a supplement? If Medicare is primary, there are still deductibles, copays, coinsurance that would need to be satisfied by your secondary insurance. Based on your question, I'm assuming that you have a group health plan with a copayment as your secondary insurance. If so, then yes, you would pay your copayment but it would not exceed the part B deductible.


how does secondary insurance work?

Here's a basic example of how secondary health insurance works. You go to the doctor, he charges you $100 for the visit. Your primary insurance pays him $50 and disallows $10.

What does Carve out coordination of benefits mean in dental insurance?

When a patient has primary and secondary insurance plans and there is a CO Bcarve out clause on their secondary plan this is what happens. Primary pays their amount and secondary subtracts primary's payment from what they were suppose to pay and pays the difference. Example: Primary pays 50% of a filling which cost $100.00 and secondary pays 80%. Primary pays $50.00, secondary would pay $80.00, therefore, secondary would only pay $30.00 of the remaining $50.00. It is a very confusing issue and I have been in dental for over 25 years and I still have a hard time explaining this to patients.
