John’s Take

If you prefer a little background before linking and would like to read John Barbati’s thoughts on dental /vision insurance versus dental / vision discount programs, please read below.

JohnBarbati

Q). Is traditional dental insurance overpriced and limited in scope?
A). “Yes. After 12 years as a health insurance agent and helping more than 2,500 persons review coverage, I don’t see compelling value with traditional individual dental insurance. Coverage is generally expensive and seemingly favors the insurer. A typical “decent” plan might cost $35 per month for an individual ($400 per year) and maybe $100 per month for a family ($1,200 per year).   To these costs add a $1,000 maximum annual benefit limit restriction, with 12 – 18 month waiting periods before any major work. Few plans here cover crowns, bridges, orthodontics, etc.

With traditional vision insurance, coverage terms can be a bit more fair, but price can be $150 per year for an individual and more for a family.”

Q). For value conscious families, might there be a better way to access dental, vision and pharmacy savings?
A). “I see a better way with affordable dental and vision, pharmacy discount programs from marketed through Xpress Healthcare, LLC.

Families can save $1,200 per year versus paying traditional dental and vision insurance premiums and an individual might save nearly $400 per year. Already we are ahead!

Discount programs are not insurance, but when we figure the savings from not paying the insurance premiums and the discounts on services (with no limits or waiting period for dental use)… I think they often offer much better value.”

Q). Is there any “catch” here to using a discount program?
A). “For the vision coverage, none at all. For the dental coverage, where in this case the program is called Dental powered by Aetna Dental Access, you just want to be sure that the dentist is in-network. The Aetna Dental Access network has approximately 160,000 providers, but dentists sometimes come and go versus what you may see in the online directory…so always best to phone first before booking a visit. Sometimes this takes a few phone calls to get it right…but the savings can be worth it for those willing to make the research effort

We bought the Xpress Premium Package in early December and used it for my husband and 3 of our children 4 TIMES between Christmas Eve and New Year’s Day. Each time our Family Doctors or Pediatricians were away or closed and it would have cost a fortune to go to the ER. Our first Dr. callback came in 3 minutes and within 5 minutes we had a prescription. The last visit was on the way to my daughter’s practice and she sat in the backseat of our car on a video conference with the doctor, showed her the rash around her hair line and within 5 minutes we were able to get the prescription filled and picked up before I dropped her off at practice. unbelievable!!!

I will never go to a Doctor again except for well checkups! BTW – we compared the Xpress Pharmacy Card to our Health Insurance and the Xpress card saved us another $150 over the 4 prescriptions. Each took a few minutes to get prices while on my phone, but worth every minute! I would have never known about these benefits without Xpress! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
