We know that many different dental and medical plans exist, and our insurance coordinators do their best to provide patients with accurate, up-to-date estimates based on the information available to us. Insurance companies often change benefits, co-pays, and deductibles several times annually, making it very difficult to accurately estimate a patient’s insurance co-payment. For this reason, we ask that you keep us updated on any changes to your insurance coverage, as dealing with these companies is often very time consuming. We appreciate your effort to communicate to us all information about yourself and your insurance.
Though we will gladly provide the service to our patients, some patients file a claim themselves. Overall, insurance process claims filed by patients are faster than those filed by dental offices.
Moreover, the majority of dental insurance policies only cover a portion of the procedure(s) that may be necessary. We encourage our patients to check with their insurance companies regarding possible questions about their coverage, as treatment is not guaranteed coverage under your insurance plan.
Most dental plans reimburse clients nearly 30-80% of their total treatment costs. For this reason, we ask our patients to pay 20% of their fee at the time of the treatment.
Private & Group Insurance
As a service to our clients with medical and/or dental coverage, we will turn in all necessary claim forms, receipts, and needed other information to your insurance company.
Once an insurance payment has been received, we will bill you for any remaining balance. In the event that you deposit an excessive co-payment, a refund will be sent to you.
