Dental Insurance: Are you in or are you out….of Network?
Understanding dental Insurance is one of our specialties and helping you get the most out of your plan is to your benefit if the need for treatment arises.
We are proud to be part of some of the countries largest Dental Insurance providers.
Some of the Preferred Provider Organizations that we are apart of:
By choosing to be part of these Preferred Provider Organizations, we can help cover some of the costs of your dental care. The estimated amount we expect your plan to reimburse us is accepted as a form of payment but any deductibles and co-pays are due at the time of service. As a courtesy to you, we will bill your insurance company first and any remaining costs will be owed directly by you. In the event that your child needs to have treatment (fillings, crowns, etc.) completed, we will submit a predetermination (Pre-D) to your insurance company to acquire a more true to life estimated cost of the prescribed treatment.
We file all insurance claims electronically so your insurance company will have your claim within days of treatment. We utilize a computer program to estimate the benefits and estimated co-pays provided by your plan. Please understand this is only an ESTIMATED amount, and is not a guarantee of complete payment. Your insurance plan only guarantees payment after each visit and after it has been reviewed by them.
We can only assist you in estimating your portion of the cost of the treatment. We are unable to guarantee how your insurance company will process each claim submitted. Employers have the opportunity to frequently change insurance plans and it is your responsibility to inform us of any changes since your last visit. Please keep us informed of any changes, as they may significantly affect your benefit level. We suggest you contact your insurance carrier directly for more definitive information regarding your costs; including the breakdown of benefits, copays, and deductibles. IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO UNDERSTAND ALL BENEFITS AND AGREEMENTS PERTAINING TO YOUR INSURANCE POLICY. We try to help you navigate your insurance benefits as a service to you. Please let us know if you have questions.
Insurance companies provide benefits using online portals, telephone, and via fax. Due to this process, verifying insurance can take up to 30 mins or more, and so to ensure a more comfortable visit we verify insurance before your appointment time. Verifying insurance at the time of visit may result in longer wait time or rescheduling of your appointment.
