In order to keep our fees stable and minimize your dental costs, we have adopted the following financial policy:
- The initial visit, which includes examination, consultation and x-rays must be paid in full at the time of service.
- We always welcome your payments in cash or personal checks. As a convenience to our patients, we also accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express. There will be a $35.00 fee for ALL returned checks.
- Sixty percent (60%) of the estimated fee for treatment will be required on the day of service. We will submit your insurance claim to your primary insurance company as a courtesy to you. Your outstanding balance is due regardless of the status of your insurance claim. This amount is your responsibility! All accounts must be paid in full within ninety (90) days from the date of service.
A Word About Insurance
Please contact your insurance company or managed care information office to determine how you might be reimbursed or covered for a service provided in our office. Upon your request, we would be happy to send a pre-treatment estimate to your insurance company. Their response will give you an estimate of what your insurance may pay.
We have found that insurance companies respond best to questions directly from you, their consumers.
We will send you a monthly statement that will reflect any payment received from your insurance company. Most insurance companies will respond within four to six weeks. We are happy to work with you to help in getting your claim paid in a timely manner. Regardless what the status of your insurance claim, the balance is due within ninety (90) days.
We ask you to sign our Financial Policy reflecting acknowledgment and understanding of this policy.
