We cooperate fully with our patients who are covered by insurance plans. We expect insured patients to read their policies carefully. It is very important that you are familiar with its benefits and limitations. We will accept assignment of benefits provided the necessary documentation has been provided. We do require that you pay your deductible and/or estimated co-pay at the time of service. If your insurance company has not paid your account in full within 45 days of treatment or denies you can claim for ANY reason, you are responsible for the total balance.
All estimates given for proposed treatment are not a guarantee of benefits. The office does not allow the insurance company to dictate recommended treatment. All prosthetic services must be paid in full on or before completion. We reserve the right to charge any account balance due over 30 days at 1.5% monthly finance charge or a $5.00 repeat billing charge, whichever is greater. You are responsible for any and all collection cost and/or fees associated with collecting the balance of your account. We consider the parent or guardian who brings the child to our office for treatment the responsible party for payment of the child’s account. If someone else is legally responsible for the child’s account, it remains the responsibility of the parent or guardian bringing the child for treatment to seek reimbursement for payment made to our office. We will be happy to assist you by providing you a copy of the charges and payments made at each visit. The office reserves the right to charge $50.00 PER HALF HOUR of a broken appointment up to the entire cost of treatment if not cancelled within the 48 hours. To avoid a charge, 48 hours notice must be given. Treatment plans signed and paid for must be cancelled within 48 hours for a refund minus 15% administrative fee. A $35.00 fee will be added to your account for any checks returned to us by the bank. A $25.00 fee will be assessed for the duplication of records/x-rays.
