Insurance Payment and Financial Options

Forms-FinancialUsually, payment for services is due at the time they are provided. However, financial considerations should not be an obstacle to obtaining dental treatment. We understand that different people have different needs in fulfilling their financial obligations. We can help arrange a payment schedule. Please see our financial options below.

Balances Due

Insurance Reimbursement

It is our pleasure to assist you in maximizing your insurance benefit by completing your claim forms. If your carrier is capable, your claims will be submitted electronically via computer modem before the end of the treatment day! As a courtesy, in addition to filing your claims, we will initially ask you only for your estimated co-payment. Please understand that this is only an estimate and is based upon the information available to us.

Some plans base the amount of benefit on a schedule of fees arbitrarily developed by insurance companies. For this reason, you may receive a lower percentage than the reimbursement level indicated in your dental plan. For example, if your plan states that it will pay 80% of the cost of a specific treatment, it means 80% of the fee arbitrarily determined by the insurance company, and not the actual fee charged by our office.

The financial obligation for dental treatment is between you and our office. Your insurance is a contract between you, your employer and the insurance company. We are not a part of that contract. We will assist you in any way that we can by filing your claims and working to obtain your maximum available benefits.

If you have any questions concerning the above information or are uncertain regarding insurance information, please do not hesitate to discuss it with Lora. For more information, please review our Financial Policy or any of our available forms.
