Insurance and Billing
It is our pleasure to assist you in maximizing your insurance benefits by completing your claim forms.
We will need you to bring us a copy of your benefit booklet if you would like help in interpreting your benefits. If your carrier is up to date (in over 90% of the cases), the claims will be transmitted via computer modem before the end of the treatment day. Your estimated co-payment is expected at the time of service. Please remember that this is only an estimate based on the information available to us. After insurance reconciliation any overpayment on your part will be credited or refunded to you and any unpaid balance will be due by you upon receipt of our statement.
The range of benefits varies from policy to policy. Some plans cover as little as 25% or as much as 100% of dental services, with most falling in the 40% to 80% range.
Some plans base the amount of benefits on a schedule of fees arbitrarily developed by insurance companies others use a UCR fee schedule based benefit. 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 no more than 80% of the fee arbitrarily determined by the insurance company and may not be the actual fee charged by our office or not even a Fair Usual and Customary for the industry.
The financial obligation for dental treatment is between you and our office. The insurance company is responsible to you, and not to our office. We will assist you in any way that we can. Once your carrier has paid the claim, any difference will be due by you upon receipt of our statement. If for any reason, we have not received your insurance carrier's payment 90 days after the claim, the remaining balance will be due and payable by you, and subject to 18% APR.
We accept checks, cash or credit cards. We also offer a flexible payment plan. Please see our Financial Coordinator for details.
