Insurance & Billing
We are pleased that you have selected our doctors to provide your oral and maxillofacial treatment. We are sensitive to the fact that people have different needs in fulfilling their financial obligations. We will work with you to maximize your insurance benefits for covered procedures and will find a payment option that works best for you.
It is the responsibility of the patient or the patient's responsible party for all charges incurred regardless of insurance coverage.
We offer the following payment methods: cash, check, Visa, MasterCard and Discover. Extended financing is also available but approval must be obtained prior to treatment date.
An initial payment of 22% is due at the time of treatment. After your insurance company has processed your claim, any remaining balance is due in full at that time.
While payment in full is preferred, an initial payment of 52% must be made at the time of treatment. The remaining balance is due 30 days from the date of treatment.
If you have supplied us with complete and accurate information, we will file your insurance claims for you. Depending upon your insurance plans and the type of surgery, you may be covered by dental, by medical, by both medical and dental or you may have no insurance coverage at all. With this in mind, you should call your insurance companies prior to surgery to verify your coverage. We recommend and would be happy to file a pre-determination of benefits to your insurance companies at your request.
Please remember that insurance is a contract between you and your insurance company. You are fully responsible for all fees charged regardless of your insurance coverage. If we do not receive payment from your insurance company within 60 days of filing a claim, we may bill you directly for the full amount. We recommend that you check the status of your claim with your insurance company to ensure prompt payment.
You will receive a statement from us monthly regardless of your insurance coverage. Most insurance companies will respond within 30-60 days; this process is longer if you are covered by more than one type of insurance. Your prompt payment on the remaining balance is appreciated once your insurance has paid.
A finance charge of 1.5% per month will be applicable on account balances after 90 days. There may be extra fees incurred if outside collection services are needed.
