Our office is not considered ‘in-network’ with any insurance companies. However, as a courtesy to our patients, we are happy to file claim for work done by our office, so that you may obtain direct reimbursement of your treatment fees.
Our insurance coordinators deal with many different insurance companies. Some companies offer many different dental and medical 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 impossible to accurately estimate our patients’ insurance co-payment. Many insurance companies will not give out fees until after the treatment is completed. The filing of a claim can be time consuming. As a courtesy, we ask that you keep us informed of any change to your insurance as we assist you in filing a claim.
You also have the option to submit an insurance claim yourself. In general, insurers process claims filed directly by patients faster than those filed by the service providers (dental offices).
Most dental insurance policies are limited and often only pay for a portion of the procedure(s) needed. The majority of dental insurance plans reimburse a patient for approximately 30%-80% of treatment costs. Accordingly, we ask that one-third of the treatment fee be paid at the time of treatment. The remaining monies can be paid under one of our payment options outlined on our Financal Policy page. Should dental insurance cover treatment, any proceeds can be applied accordingly.
Private & group insurance
As a courtesy to our patients with medical and/or dental benefit plans, we will submit necessary claim forms, receipts, and other necessary information to your insurance company.
Upon receipt of an insurance payment, any balance due will be billed to you. If the insurance payment exceeds your open balance the excess will be refunded to you.
