Finance and Insurance
Due to the increase of mailing statements and in trying to keep our fees as low as possible, we find it necessary to expect our patients to pay for the services they receive at that time unless prior arrangements are made with our receptionist. We want to give you the best and most reasonable service possible without having to raise our fees and would appreciate your cooperation in this matter. For your convenience, we accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Exspress. We also have financing options, such as Care Credit, available to those who qualify.
To avoid misunderstanding regarding dental insurance, we wish our patients to know that all professional services rendered are charged directly to the patient and that patients are personally responsible for payment of fees, in accordance with our above mentioned financial policy. We will help you prepare necessary forms to aid you in obtaining your benefits from insurance companies “upon full or partial payment of the bill.” We do not render our services on the basis that insurance companies will pay all fees. Each fee is individual for the individual patient.
Some plans require that the treatment plan is submitted for a “pre-treatment” estimate.” If this is included in your plan, then we will submit this information for you; however, it is only an estimate, not a guarantee of payment from your insurance company, and you are responsible for any portion not covered by your insurance company.
