Insurance Information

Insurance Information

Your insurance policy is a contract between you and your insurance company. It is important to know that professional services are rendered and charged to you, the patient.

It is our responsibility to provide the utmost quality care. Diagnosis and treatment are determined by your Doctor, not your Insurance Company. Our obligation is to help you as much as we can by completing all forms pertaining to your claim and submitting them promptly to your company. This helps you obtain the reimbursement you are entitled to receive as quickly as possible.


Because different Insurance Companies reimburse the office at their own "Usual and Customary Fee" rates (which may be lower than ours), there could be an In-Office Co-Pay for each visit of treatment to you, the patient. Should your total treatment be covered under your plan, our office will reimburse you, or add the credit to your account after the Insurance Coverage has been received.


As your doctor may be a "Provider" on your Particular Plan, this does not mean that each visit is covered at 100%. Not all dental services may be covered under your particular plan (ie: Crowns, Gum Disease Treatment, and/or White Fillings). You may be obligated to pay the additional fee that your Insurance does not cover. At your request, we are willing to send a Pre-Determination to your Insurance Company before treatment so you have a greater understanding of your financial responsibilities.


Please Research your Insurance Company before your visit with us, so that we are able to serve you and answer any questions you may have. If there is a question about your Insurance Payment, or non-payment, we will be happy to assist you as much as we can, but the question and answers also should be directed to your particular Insurance Company. The more information the company receives, the greater chance the industry will change.


Thank You for understanding our Benefit Options. Please let our receptionist know if you have any questions or concerns at 813-251-5959.
