If you have dental insurance….
We make every effort to provide you with the finest dental care and the most convenient financial options. To accomplish this we work hand in hand with you and your insurance company to maximize your insurance benefits for covered procedures. Please bring all necessary information to your first visit so that the Patriot Dental staff may help you to receive any benefits that you may be entitled to. If you have any problems or questions, please ask our staff. You can reach our financial coordinator via email at email@example.com. Please email or call if you have any questions or concerns regarding your initial visit.
As a courtesy, our caring and helpful staff will file any insurance claims required for your treatment. If you are unsure of your insurance reimbursement policy we can submit an insurance predetermination. However, it usually takes 3-4 weeks for the insurance company to respond. Most insurance plans provide benefits that do not fully cover charges you may incur. For our patients who have insurance coverage our policy is to collect 50% of the total treatment cost regardless of insurance coverage at time of service. Please remember, you are fully responsible for all charges by the office regardless of your insurance coverage.
Our fee is your responsibility, regardless of how much your insurance covers. You should read your policy or check with your insurance representative concerning your coverage before treatment. Our financial coordinator is available to help you in this process.
If you have questions regarding your account, please contact our financial coordinator via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Many times a simple telephone call will clear any misunderstandings.
*Insurance companies do not set our fees, but they do establish a list of fees that they refer to as “usual and customary.” You should know how your plan is designed, since this can significantly affect the plans coverage and your out-of-pocket expenses. Our financial coordinator is available to help you take maximum advantage of your insurance, once we know your plan design.
*Treatment decisions must be made by you and your dentist. While dental benefit coverage should be taken into account, it should not be the deciding factor in your choice of treatment. If you need to make other financial arrangements, please feel free to talk with our financial coordinator prior to treatment.
