Emergency Out-Patient dental treatment

TOB-Glossary-Medical-Insurance-Emergency-In-Patient-dental-treatment

Emergency out-patient dental treatment is a benefit that covers costs associated with urgent dental care that does not require hospitalization. This type of care is typically required as a result of an accident or sudden onset of a dental condition. It typically does not include treatments such as extractions, repairs, and temporary fillings. The treatment must typically be completed within a certain time frame from the onset of the emergency in order for the benefit to be applicable.

It’s important to note that this benefit does not usually cover follow-up care, such as regular check-ups, dental surgery, orthodontics, or periodontics. These types of treatments are typically covered under separate benefits. Additionally, coverage for this benefit may vary between insurance policies, and it’s important to carefully review your policy to understand what is and isn’t covered.
