Understanding our payment policy and how we work with insurance companies is very important. If you have any questions about the information below, please be sure to contact us and we will be happy to help!
Generally, dental offices prefer direct payment from the patient at the time of service and then process the insurance information for later reimbursement to the patient.
However, as a courtesy and convenience to you, we will accept direct payment from the insurance company. Therefore, the following guidelines are necessary to prevent confusion. Since policies and plans vary between companies, certain insurance policy standards are made as follows:
We will cooperate in every possible way in order for you to receive the maximum insurance benefits for which you are entitled. Despite our efforts, disputes occasionally arise with dental insurance companies. If there is a dispute with your insurance company, we will supply any documentation you may need to help resolve this disagreement. However, we must remind you that the financial relationship is between you and this office, not between our office and your insurance company. Therefore, you have the final responsibility for payment of your bill.
Our main goal is for you to obtain the highest quality of dental care by providing you the service that is based upon a professional, courteous, and confidential working relation¬ship between you and our office. In order to prevent misunderstandings, it is our policy to clear all financial procedures at the beginning of your treatment.
Payments must be made when services are rendered. If your treatment requires several visits, you will be given an estimate of the cost involved. For patients with extensive treatment plans, partial payments can be arranged pending on the treatments (restrictions apply). However, final payment is expected in full upon completion of a procedure. To make payments as convenient as possible, we accept major credit cards, checks and cash.
We are unable to carry balances over 30 days. Finance and repeat billing charges are applied to all overdue accounts. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have about our payment policy.
