It is our pleasure to assist you in maximizing your insurance benefit by completing your claim forms. If your carrier is up to date (in over 70% of the cases), the claims will be electronically transmitted before the end of the treatment day! All applicable deductibles for your insurance plan will be collected before treatment begins. As a courtesy, in addition to filing the claim, we will initially ask you only for your estimated co-payment. Please understand that this is only an estimate and is based upon the information available to us. Once your carrier has paid the claim, any difference will be due upon receipt of our statement. If your insurance company postpones payment for more than 60 days, we ask that you make the remaining payment while we work together to get the insurance company to pay you, their obligation.
The range of benefits depends solely on what your employer wishes to purchase. Some plans cover as little as 30%, or as much as 100% of dental services, with most falling in the 40% to 80% range. Many plans base the amount of benefit on a schedule of fees arbitrarily developed by insurance companies. For this reason, you may receive a lower percentage than the reimbursement level indicated in your dental plan. For example, if your plan states that it will pay 80% of the cost of a specific treatment, it means 80% of the fee arbitrarily determined by the insurance company and not the actual fee charged by our office.
The final obligation for the dental treatment is between you and our office.
