In an attempt to clarify any doubts regarding our office financial policy, please understand that:
- We will file a claim with your insurance company for you. And we will ask that our office receive payment (partial or in full) for dental services rendered in our office.
- Our office will communicate with your insurance company and a list of your benefits will be obtained. You will be given a copy of your Insurance Coverage in your New Patient Package.
- A deductible of usually $25 to $50 is paid by the patient to activate payment of benefits. If one applies, this needs to be paid in our office only once a year.
- Our office will calculate the estimated out-of-pocket expense to our patients based on the percentage formula given to us by your insurance company.
- Example: A $100 filling is covered at 80% and you pay $20 out-of-pocket. This amount will be collected in our office at the time of treatment.
- When an insurance company denies a claim, we will re-file such claim when necessary. A copy of this transaction is often mailed to the beneficiary, so you will be notified by your insurance company just as we will.
- Patients are ultimately responsible for payment of their dental bills. Our office will regret any miscalculation in your insurance coverage due to pre-set fee schedules. Our computer system records and upgrades these transactions so that we may better calculate your out-of-pocket expense in future treatments.
- You will be billed any outstanding balance after an insurance company denial if services have already been rendered.
- This is part of your contractual agreement with your insurance company and your doctor’s office.
