What is “UCR” and how is it determined?
UCR” (Usual Customary and Reasonable fees) is the term used by insurance companies to describe the maximum amount they will allow for a particular dental procedure. There is no standard fee or accepted method for determining the UCR, and the UCR has no relationship to the fee charged by our office. The administrator of each dental plan determines the fees that their plan will pay, often based on many factors, including region of the country, number of procedures performed, and cost of living.
