What may be of concern though is that your new insurance may have a" pre-existing condition" clause that may absolve them from providing reimbursement for procedures done to replace a tooth that had been extracted prior to the insurance policy taking effect. I would check on the terms of the policy. Your dentist may be able to help you in this matter. ...Read more
