Our insurance coordinators deal with many different insurance companies. Some companies offer many different dental plans. These companies can change benefits, co-pays, and deductibles many times throughout the year. We do our best to provide you with accurate coverage estimates based on information available to us. At times, it is nearly impossible to accurately estimate a patient’s insurance co-payment. Many insurance companies will not give out fees until after the treatment is completed. Dealing with these companies can be difficult and time consuming. As a courtesy, we ask that you keep us informed of any change to your insurance. It is important that all information about you and your insurance is current. VERY IMPORTANT TO UNDERESTAND IS: IF YOU COMPLETE ANY DENTAL TREATMENT WITH YOUR GENERAL DENTIST OR ANOTHER SPECIALIST, IT REDUCES THE REMAINING AMOUNT OF BENEFITS/MONEY FOR THE YEAR. YOUR ANNUAL MAXIMUM IS THE TOTAL FOR ALL OF YOUR DENTAL CARE.
Although we will gladly file a claim on your behalf, you may wish to submit the claim yourself. In general, insurers process claims filed directly by patients faster than those filed by the service providers (dental offices).
Further, all dental insurance policies, we have ever encountered, are limited and only pay for a portion of the procedure(s) that are needed to achieve optimal dental health.
The majority of dental plans reimburse approximately 30-80 percent of treatment costs up to your annual maximum. We will do our best to provide an estimate of your co-payment prior to any surgical appointments.
Private & Group Insurance
As a courtesy to our patients with dental benefit plans, we will submit necessary claim forms, and other documentation/x-rays to your insurance company.
Upon receipt of an insurance payment, any balance due will be billed to you. If your insurances pays more than was estimated, the difference will be refunded to you.
