We can work with you and your budget to help get you started with your healthy and beautiful smile!

We are dedicated to helping every South Texas patient we treat receive the dental
care they need without blowing their budgets!

At La Costa Dental, we know that the cost of treatment is a major concern for many of the families we treat, and that’s why we are happy to accept your dental insurance plans. If you invest in a dental benefit plan to offset the cost of your treatment, we want to help you make the most of this coverage. Our Corpus Christi, Beaumont, and Port Arthur dentists will process and file insurance claims for most traditional PPO and HMO dental plans, Medicaid, CHIP, Molina, and Ambetter dental care plans. If you have questions about your specific coverage, contact La Costa Dental today. We’d be happy to help. We hope to see you and your family soon in one of our five convenient South Texas dental offices. We’re located in Corpus Christi on Ayers Street, Kostoryz Road, and Leopard Street. We also have offices in Port Arthur and Beaumont.

Traditional PPO & HMO Insurance Plans For South Texas

We are happy to process and file claims for traditional Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) and Healthcare Maintenance Organization (HMO) plans. These insurance networks are designed to provide patients with partial coverage for the dentistry services they need. Every plan is a unique contract between the patient, their employer (in some case), and the insurer, so we will need to review your benefit plan to give you specific out of pocket cost estimates for the care you need. If you have a PPO or HMO dental insurance plan, please let a member of our team know. We’ll review your plan and carefully explain available coverage for your treatments.

Maximizing Dental Insurance For South Texas

We will always work hard to help our patients receive the maximum coverage from their dental benefits. However, there are some steps you can take to ensure you get the maximum benefit, including:

  • Prevention – preventive care typically receives the highest percentage of insurance coverage, so keeping up with your six month dental checkups and teeth cleanings is an easy way to maximize your insurance benefits.
  • Communication – talk to our team about your coverage. In some cases, we can adjust your treatment plans to better fit the parameters of your insurance plan. If you’re worried about the cost of care, let us know. We’ll do our best to help you receive the coverage you deserve.
  • In-network providers – working with in-network dentists means you can be sure they have agreed to your insurer’s established fees for your healthcare services, which can save you money. For instance, when you receive a treatment that your insurer indicates should cost $100 and receives 50% coverage, you would only pay $50 at an in-network practice. Out of network dentists may charge more than $100, and you will need to pay the difference in price and the $50 you would pay at an in-network office.

Medicaid & CHIP Insurance Plans For Patients in Corpus Christi, Port Arthur and Beaumont

Medicaid dental insurance plans and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) plans are offered jointly by state and federal agencies to ensure individuals and families who live below the poverty line, children, seniors, and persons with disabilities have access to the dental and healthcare services they need. CHIP Medicaid insurance is processed by our team for children’s dental care. We also have a skilled Medicaid orthodontist on our team to offer young patients and adults a straighter, healthier smile. Our Medicaid clinics provide treatments for qualified individuals and families. Our Medicaid dentist and team will maximize Medicaid dental coverage for a wide range of preventive, restorative, and orthodontic services to keep patients smiling. If you’re looking for a dental office that takes Medicaid, we’re here to help you process and file your insurance claims to make our treatments even more affordable.

If you’re looking for a dentist that accepts Molina healthcare plans, our team would be happy to help. We are happy to process and file Molina health plans, and our Molina dentist and team will work with you to make the most of your supplemental Molina dental plan.
