I need oral surgery. What are things to consider about insurance?

ANSWER

You can find oral and maxillofacial surgeons that are in your insurer’s network by calling them or visiting their website. Most companies will list doctors by specialty and show you where their offices are.

Make a list, cross-check it with any recommendations you get, and go from there.

You can choose out-of-network doctors, too. But that usually costs more.
