Insurance:

Insurance companies change. Please call the office for a complete list of companies that we participate with. 

If we receive all of your insurance information on the day of your hygiene visit we can preauthorize your treatment. It takes at least 20 to 30 days to receive a preauthorization back, even though we file everything electronically. When we know what your insurance will pay, we are able to break down payments per visit. If there is a change in what the insurance company pays, you will be billed within days of our receiving payment. You are responsible for all amounts not paid by insurance.

PLEASE UNDERSTAND that we file dental insurance as a courtesy to our patients. You have a contract with your dental insurance company. We are not responsible for how a company handles its claims or for what benefits they pay on a claim. We can estimate your portion of the cost of treatment. We at no time guarantee what the insurance company will pay. We also cannot be responsible for errors in filing. We file claims as a courtesy to you.

NO INSURANCE COMPANY PAYS 100% OF ALL PROCEDURES:
Dental insurance aids individuals in receiving treatment. Most companies pay between 50-80% of the total fee. The percentage is usually determined by your employer who has paid for the coverage, and the contract that your company has with the dental provider. 

BENEFITS ARE NOT DETERMINED BY OUR OFFICE:
Insurances usually reimburse less than the actual fee. Their statement makes us seem that our fees are much too high. This is not an accurate statement. 

DEDUCTIBLES and CO-PAYMENTS:
When estimating dental benefits, deductibles and percentages must be considered.
