We encourage patients to ask our team members questions about their insurance coverage. Typically, dental insurance offers patients limited coverage for services provided by specialists. It is important that patients maximize their annual insurance benefits for preventive care in the offices of their general dentistry practice.
Our office is not considered ‘in-network’ with any insurance companies. However, as a courtesy to our patients, we are happy to file a 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. We do our best to provide you with accurate coverage estimates based on information available to us. 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.
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.
