Insurance And Payment Options
- We accept most insurance plans.
- We also accept payment from most PPO and indemnity plans.
- Please call our office to make an appointment and to ask any questions you may have.
We accept all major credit cards, debit cards, cash, and personal checks.
For our patients' convenience we have arranged a payment plan through a third party, Care Credit, that helps our patients receive their treatment in a timely manner if you are eligible.
Please be advised that we are happy, for most of our patients, to process your insurance claims on your behalf, and wait for payment. Unfortunately some insurance companies can take as long as four to six weeks to pay the office. Many insurance companies allow for electronic submisstion of your claims. Most physicians don't process insurance forms for their patients for this reason. Therefore this is quite a benefit relative to how your physician operates.
Please keep in mind that you will have co-payments for almost all of your treatment. Co-payments are expected when the services are completed. In some instances full payment will be requested when services are completed.
You will receive, in writing, a comprehensive treatment plan with all fees listed. Please remember that even though we attempt to make this plan as accurate as possible during your examination, changes may be made during the course of treatment that could either lower or raise the cost of your treatment. This will be discussed with you immediately when and if this occurs.
Our offices also offer payment program contracts to ease in any difficult problems with extensive treatment plans. This can be extremely helpful when a patient is unable or not eligible to receive remuneration from the third party assistance program that is offered.
Please also keep in mind that our office has little to do with dental fee structuring. Dental offices sign up for plans where the fee structures have been set and we have absolutely no influence with insurance companies in this matter.
Please feel free to discuss insurance issues and payment responsibilities with our competent front desk staff members. They will usually be able to answer your questions. If additional information is needed they will call your insurance company for the answers to your questions.
