Complaint / review text:
This Insurance Company is a Scam. My daughter needed simple fillings like every other 10-14 yr old. With the rising costs of healthcare that I now pay, simple things like this should be covered. We were told the only fillings that are covered are archaic Amalgam fillings, which are under controversy for leaching mercury into the mouth. We were told if we wanted resin we would have to come up with the cost. One of my daughters fillings was in a brand new tooth, which came in with a cavity that could not be filled with amalgam because they would have to drill into the nerve. Most Dental insurance companies cover resin on visible teeth. We explained to customer service that we had no choice but to have this tooth filled with resin. Children's teeth are small to begin with. More enamel needs to be removed when using Dental amalgam than resin. She had 6 fillings done with resin for almost $700. Why are these fillings not covered???
