Dental Insurance is intended to cover some, but not all of the cost of your treatment. Most plans include a deductible and other expenses which must be paid by the patient. You will also need to find out from your employer and your dental plan provider exactly what your policy covers. To avoid delays in reimbursement, obtain any necessary forms from the benefits manager at your company and bring them with you to your appointment. We will, at no additional cost, assist you in filling out claim forms so that you can receive the maximum benefits to which you are entitled.
HMO – Health Maintenance Organization
You are responsible for a co-payment when services are rendered.
PPO – Preferred Provider Organization
If you are a member of a PPO, you will most likely have a deductible, office co-pay or co-insurance amounts which are applicable to our services. You are responsible for payment of deductibles, co-payment, co-insurance amounts which are applicable to our services.
Please note that even though the patient and doctor may be contracted with a PPO or HMO, or any other kind of insurance, final and full payment is still the responsibility and obligation of the patient. If you have questions regarding your coverage, please ask a member of our office staff and we will work with you to find the answer.
