United HealthCare has an “allowed amount” and my plan pays a portion of that allowed amount. Aspen Dental’s prices are SO MUCH higher than the allowed amounts, it feels like robbery.
I should have checked prices of other dentists first. For instance, they charge $102 for a cleaning, when the allowed amount by UHC is $68. My plan paid $18. For the fillings I supposedly had to have (I think the digital imagery x-rays they use to claim that you have cavities I feel are just a crock) the costs were $247 for two surfaces (allowed amount $117) and $301 for three surfaces (allowed amount $139).
Aspen Dental did not call the insurance company on my behalf. I had to do this for them.
I will never visit again. They are schemers.
