I have dental insurance. In March, I went for a cleaning and a filling. I paid $170 at the time of the service. I also paid another $70 for X-Rays. I was cool with it.
Tonight a lady from that dentist called and said I owed $180 more. Why?, I asked. She said because my dental insurance didn't cover my services. That didn't sound right. What was I paying $51 every two weeks for if it didn't cover anything?
So I tried to call the insurance company. They are only open eastern time and they were closed. So I got on the website. According to the website, x-rays and cleanings are covered at 100% and the filling was covered at 80%.
What the hell kind of filling costs $410 after the insurance paid the other 80%?
