The annual enrollment period has started and it will not last long. Do not procrastinate, because your dental insurance choice for the year is most likely going to determine which dentists you will be able to visit in 2015 and the quality of dental care you and your family are going to receive.
One of the most obvious choices are between HMO and PPO plans. Dental HMO plans as a rule have lower premiums and lower co-pays, but they also tend to limit the services you can receive as well as dentists in Los Angeles you can visit. We will discuss the differences between HMO and PPO dental plans in our final post of the series. As a rule, River Dentistry accepts most PPO dental plans, but we want to help you choose dental insurance that will work best for you and gives you best coverage at a reasonable cost.
