Anyone have Costco Dental Insurance? I am wondering how it
is and what the premium cost is for family coverage. Many
I've been really happy with Costco Dental. Their prices
just went up to $213.12 for great dental and orthodontic
coverage for a full year for a family of four. On the
dentist list of providers are many within walking distance
of my Albany home and the kids and I love our dentist. However, I'm not
so happy with their orthodontic providers.
We had selected one in Berkeley when my kids were
identified as needing braces but before they were ready to
start treatment. Now that provider is off their roster and
I'll have to choose between providers in Pinole or downtown
Oakland. These orthodontists don't seem to have any solidly
positive reviews on line. When I asked the BPN community,
there were no responses whatsoever. I suspect that their
orthodontists are either young and relatively inexperienced
or established and without a loyal following. --worried about
orthodontists, but glad I have Costco Delta Dental nonetheless
I have been laid off and need to find dental insurance for myself and my family. Can anyone recommend a good and reasonable priced dental insurance for a family or small business.
Maisy, if you need good dental insurance, try Lifelong Dental. Their staff are
very friendly and most of the dentists there are very good and super nice.
Good luck with your search :-)
Delta Dental has done it for our family for years. Seem to be the plan
more school districts use. Subsidized by BUSD, their Delta Dental --
PPO Pland was $96.96/mo. and the DMO Plan was $32.85 per month. Now
that I am on COBRA, the $32.85 dental is $83.14.
My husband's company does not provide dental insurance, and so I
am about to embark on looking for dental insurance, at least for
me, and ideally for my family. I am aware that dental insurance
is going to be terribly expensive. I'm hoping that someone has
done the research for dental insurance recently, and can point me
in the right direction.
Nationwide has great insurance rates. They are one of the
largest insurance carriers but b/c they don't have a large
advertising budget, they are far less costly. They offer Delta
Dental through their program but you do have to join the
Farmer's Bureau to qualify......
You can get an individual HMO dental plan through Delta Dental
(and administered through their affiliate PMI Dental Health
Plan). You can sign up on their web site at
www.deltadentalca.org and link to Individual Plans from PMI
Dental Health Plan.
