For our patients convenience we except VISA, MASTER CARD, DISCOVER, and AMERICAN EXPRESS, as well as cash, check, and money order. Payment is expected at the time of service. When more extensive treatment is recommended, financial arrangements, such as a payment plan, can be discussed with the administrative staff.
As a courtesy to you, we will file your claims with your insurance company. We will try to answer any questions you may have about your insurance company and policy. However, we will ask you to contact your insurance company with any additional questions. We do our best to estimate any patient potion due with the information provided by your insurance company. However, your contract is with you and your insurance company. IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO KNOW AND MONITOR YOUR BENEFITS AND YEARLY MAXIMUMS.
*Please note, insurance companies often pay what they call “usual and customary” fees. This means that they may only pay a portion of our fee schedule due to the plan that your employer has purchased from your insurance company. The difference between an insurance company payment and our bill is always the patient’s responsibility.
If we are contracted with your insurance company, DELTA DENTAL, BLUE CROSS, and REGENCE, we must follow our contractual obligations and their requirements. Any co-pay or deductibles must be met at the time of service. Your insurance company will make the final determination of eligibility.
Insurance is a contract between you and your insurance carrier. We are NOT a party to this contract. We cannot be held responsible for any plan limitations or plan exclusions. Although we estimate what your insurance company may pay, it is your insurance company that will make the final determination of benefits payable and eligibility. You will be responsible for any charges incurred and not covered by your plan.
Insurance Companies who “Pay the Patient”
If your insurance company issues payment to you for services rendered, we will ask for payment in full at the time of service. Insurance claims will still be filed on your behalf.
