Our goal is to help remove financial barriers so our patients can receive the dental treatment they need and desire. Prior to scheduling any treatment, we are happy to provide patients with an estimate of costs. Many patients have some type of dental insurance. In the majority of cases, we are able and pleased to assist you in maximizing your benefits. At your first visit, we will ask you for current insurance information. We may ask you to confirm this information at subsequent visits, so we can remain up-to-date and fully informed to serve you. Insured patients will receive cost estimates broken down by insured and uninsured costs. We ask that you pay uninsured costs the day services are rendered.
For patients covered by insurance, we will accept assignment of benefits. This means that you sign the portion of your insurance that “assigns” payment to our office. Most dental insurance plans do not cover 100% of the cost of your treatment. It is because of this, and the extreme delay in receiving payment from insurance companies, that you are asked to pay your deductible and your portion of charges at the time services are rendered. All estimates are based on information provided to us by your insurance and are not a guarantee of payment. Only after a claim is submitted and reviewed by your insurance company can final payment be determined. As a courtesy to you, we file claim forms electronically, provide postage for special claims, and we track claims for you.
Patients are asked to pay for services as they are provided.
The cost of these items will vary depending on the patient’s situation and state of their oral health. After your consultation, when all of the steps and requirements have been defined, we will provide the patient with an estimate of their total cost for the procedure.
