Our first concern is our patient, and delivering the necessary care. Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for you to receive the best dental care when you need it, and to keep you informed at all times of the cost. Before work begins on anything more than general cleaning, x-rays and exams, we will discuss with you the estimated cost of your treatment and payment options.
We participate in many PPO (Preferred Provider Organization) insurance plans, including many different plans from Blue Cross & Blue Shield, Delta Dental, Met Life, Cigna, and Aetna. *See a complete list below.
We are listed on most websites of insurance companies we work with, or you may contact your insurance company to inquire if we are a Preferred Provider for your plan. Our office staff is also happy to check if we accept your specific insurance, upon request.
Working with your insurance provider is our top priority in order to facilitate reimbursement for all covered services. We promise to promptly file dental claims for our services.
At the same time, most dental insurance plans have deductibles and co-payments, and may assign a percentage of the cost that the insured patient must shoulder.
Patient's responsibility for payment is due in full by the time treatment is completed.
If you have any questions about your insurance plan or payment options, please do not hesitate to discuss your concerns with our office staff.
*Insurers and Health Plan providers accepted by our office: Aetna PPO, Ameritas PPP, Anthem (Blue Cross) PPO, Blue Shield PPO, Cigna Dental PPO, Delta PPO, First Dental Health PPO, Guardian PPO, Humana PPO, MetLife PPO, Operating Engineers, Principal Financial PPO, United Concordia PPO, United HealthCare PPO.
Payment is ordinarily due in full at the time service, unless insurance is being billed or when other arrangements have been made in advance with out office staff.
When there is insurance coverage, only the co-payment, deductible and/or estimated patient share is due when treatment is completed. Until all insurance payments are received, we send the patient a statement each month, updating the balance due/remaining.
Please note: Regardless of insurance coverage, payment is ultimately the responsibility of the patient. Patients in health plans are responsible for any amounts not paid for by their insurance. If full payment has not been made by your insurance company by two months after the end of treatment, we will notify you to resolve any outstanding balance.
OTHER PAYMENT OPTIONS
We accept personal checks, cash or credit card (Visa and MasterCard).
If you are not receiving full insurance coverage for some of your dental care costs or need to take care of dental costs on your own, talk to us about CareCredit; you may be able to apply for a low-interest or no-interest financing plan to cover the costs of dental expenses.
