Attachment 1 Reimbursement and Non-reimbursement Items in Dental Expense---Insurance
About the insurance reimbursement request:
To enjoy dental expenses reimbursement, you have to go to the public hospitals, make sure the diagnosis and treatment details are consistent with the total amount of invoice, and provide complete medical records. In addition, whether the cost of dental care can be reimbursed or not is depending on the treatment program and the materials used.
General non-reimbursement items:
1.Denture: ordinary denture, such as there are tooth No.1, 2and 3, among which the second tooth is pulled out for some reasons. Make dental caps (3 porcelain crowns) for the three teeth, put them on 1st and 3rd respectively, and then the second tooth is fixed too. But the premise is that tooth No. 1 and 3 must be worn off a thick layer for the crown. The advantage of this method is that it is cheaper than dental implant, and the disadvantage is that the two good teeth No.1 and 3 are damaged.
2.Dental implant: As mentioned above, among the tooth No.1, 2 and 3, the second tooth is pulled out for some reasons. Dental implant is to implant a nail into the alveolar bone on the location of tooth No.2, and then an independent porcelain crown is implanted on the head of the nail. The advantage of this method is that it has nothing to do with the adjacent teeth, but it is relatively expensive.
3.Denture restoration: including the post crown, dental crown, complete denture, partial denture etc.
4.Orthodontics: Orthodontic treatment is needed due to irregular teeth.
5.Repair: The use of imported high-end materials cannot be reimbursed generally, but the use of ordinary materials can be reimbursed.
6.Stained tooth treatment and other esthetic dentistry items.
7.Simple teeth wash, or when the teeth wash is required for the treatment, the costs involved in esthetic dentistry.
2.Tooth filling: including ordinary materials and treatment fees.
3.Oral hemostasis, periodontal disease, pulpitis, periapical periodontitis, root canal therapy, toothache and other disease treatment costs
General reimbursement ratio and form (general departments of public hospitals):
Outpatient for disease: There is a daily limit of 600 yuan (the cost within the daily limit after deduction of the expenses paid by oneself); there is a minimum charge, and the payout ratio is 85%. That is (the total amount within daily limit-minimum charge)*85%= Reimbursement amount.
