Dental Insurance Waiting Period

Most Washington Individual Dental Insurance plans have a waiting period.  A waiting period is the length of time an insurance company will make you wait after you are covered before they will pay for certain procedures.  For example, if the policy has a three month wait period, and you need to have a root canal, you will need to wait three months before you can get the root canal and have them pay for all or a portion of it.  How much they pay is dependent on the policy that you have with them.
