Patients with Insurance Coverage
Dental insurance pays only a portion of the total treatment charge. The portion that the
patient pays (Deductible and Co-Payment) can be handled according to the Payment Options
outlined above. The portion that the insurance company pays can be assigned to our
office, providing the insurance company will send benefits to us. Certain insurance
companies will not send payments to us, but will send them to patients. In those
situations, patients will pay for their services according to the options above, and
will be reimbursed directly by their carriers, to the extent they allow.
Assignment of Benefits: Our office will accept assignment of benefits under the
• All current pertinent personal and insurance information is provided
at the first visit.
• The patient understands and signs the financial policy form.
If this information is not available at the first visit, the patient will be asked for
payment in full for the day's charges.
After verification of insurance benefits, we will accept assignment of benefits as a
partial payment of the total charge. You will be expected to pay your deductible, if
applicable, and any estimated patient co-payment. If after 60 days, your insurance
company has not paid their portion, the patient will be responsible for paying the
balance in full.
