DENTAL PLAN

If you are going to have any extensive, expensive dental work done, pre-certification is strongly recommended. Although it is not mandatory that you do so, it will let you know what your cost will be, based on the prescribed course of treatment. Also, it would give you the opportunity to possibly negotiate the dentist's charges BEFORE services are performed.
