Insurance and Financing
For your convenience, we accept cash, money orders, visa, mastercard and american express. Payment is due at the time services are performed. When more extensive dental care is necessary, financial arrangements can be made with our office.
As a courtesy to our patients, our practice accepts assignment of benefits from most dental insurance companies. We do require a credit card to be left on file for this option. Our administration staff will prepare all the necessary forms for your dental benefits. However, we remind you that your specific policy is an agreement between you and your insurance company. Due to the privacy act we cannot be held responsible to know the details (maximums, frequency) of your coverage. Please keep in mind that you are responsible for your patient portion should your insurance benefits result in less coverage than anticipated. Our staff will gladly submit a pre-treatment estimate to your insurance company so that you are aware of what your benefits will cover.
The fees charged for services rendered to those who are insured are the usual and customary fees charged to all our patients for similar services. Your policy may base its allowances on a fixed fee schedule, which may or may not coincide with our usual fees. You should be aware that different insurance companies vary greatly in the types of coverage available. Also, some companies take care of claims promptly while others delay payment for several months.
