Our insurance coordinators deal with many different insurance companies. Some companies offer many different dental and medical plans. These companies can change benefits, co-pays and deductibles many times throughout the year. We do our best to provide you with accurate coverage estimates based on information available to us. At times, it is almost impossible to accurately estimate our patients’ insurance co-payment. Many insurance companies will not give out fees until after the treatment is completed. Dealing with these companies can be difficult and time consuming. As a courtesy, we ask that you keep us informed of any change to your insurance. It is important that all information about you and your insurance is current. For your initial consultation, we will bill you directly and assist you in getting your reimbursement from your insurance company. On subsequent visits, we will bill your insurance company directly. You will be responsible for the portion not covered by your insurance at the time of treatment.
Most dental insurance policies are limited and often only pay for a portion of the procedure(s) that may need to be done. Further, some plans may have limitations on the amount of cleaning per calendar year (i.e. scaling and root planing).
