As a courtesy to our patients, we will gather all the necessary information regarding plan benefits and submit your claim to your dental insurance carrier. We ask that you provide us with all your insurance information at the time of your appointment. You will be informed of your estimated co-payment portion. This is the portion of the fee that your insurance company may not cover.
Please remember that you are fully responsible for all fees charged by this office regardless of your insurance coverage. We will allow 60 days for the insurance company to pay their portion. In any event that your insurance company fails to pay, rejects the claim, or does not pay the total balance, you will be responsible for the remaining balance.
If your insurance company pays more than the estimated amount, a refund check from this office will be mailed to you. If your insurance company pays less than the estimated amount, you will be billed for the remaining balance. Your prompt remittance is greatly appreciated.
Be advised insurance companies routinely indicate that coverage verification does not guarantee payment. While we try our best to estimate your out-of-pocket expense, actual payment is determined by the insurance company once they process the claim.
The contract that your employer negotiated with your insurance carrier defines your dental benefits. Various dental plans cover endodontic procedures at different payment levels and, as a result, your payment portion will vary.
If you do not have any dental insurance, or we do not participate with your dental insurance, payment is due at time of service.
We will gladly answer any additional questions or concerns you may have.
