Your dental plan is a form of compensation provided by your employer. For your convenience, we directly bill the carrier/insurance company for services provided based on your benefits. That portion is determined by the contract between your employer and the insurance company. The higher the premium paid by your company, the more generous the benefits. Any fees not covered based on your policy are due at the time of service. Your dental coverage is a contract between you, your employer and the insurance company. We, as your dental care provider, are not party to that contract. It is therefore understood that if for any reason your insurance company does not cover any part/s of your treatment in our office, you are responsible for payment of the account in full. It is also understood that any and all treatment is recommended for your overall health.
Processing Insurance Claims
We cannot limit our treatment plan options to fit into individual insurance plan coverage limitations. To do so would not allow us to deliver the high-quality dental care our patients have come to expect from us. As a convenience to you, we do process your insurance claims in order for you to receive maximum benefit. We also provide dental x-rays and a written diagnostic report should your insurance company have any questions. As a courtesy to our patients, we do process your dental claims and accept direct reimbursement from your insurance company for services provided.
Due to the Privacy of Information Act, it is becoming increasingly difficult for a dental office to obtain information regarding your personal dental insurance coverage, including limits, amount of coverage, or explanation of benefits. Please become completely familiar with your dental plan. Plan limitations and benefits often change yearly. Provide us with accurate information and immediately inform us of any changes.
