As a convenience to our patients with dental insurance, our office will submit the charges to your insurance carrier at no extra cost. We do ask that you provide us with dental claim forms.
Please understand that your insurance is a contract between you and the insurance company. No insurance company covers all dental costs. Some companies pay fixed allowance for certain procedures and others pay a percentage of the charge.
It usually takes three to six weeks for benefits to be paid. If after 60 days the insurance company has not paid, we ask the patient to pay the balance of their account. We will continue to seek settlement from your insurance company for a reasonable period of time. It may be necessary for the patient to contact their insurance company to expedite payment.
