(For fees over $1,000) Total patient obligation may be divided as follows: 50% due at the first treatment; with the remaining balance split into two equal payments, due 30 and 60 days after the first treatment visit. For any fees under $1,000, the full payment is due at the initiation of any procedure.
Note: Remaining payments will be written at the initiation of the treatment, “post-dated” for 30 and 60 days. Our guarantee: If a post-dated payment is deposited prior to the date on the face of the check (or credit card slip) we will credit your account for an amount equal and in addition to that payment.
In order to facilitate access to the very best health care possible, you may choose from any of the following: Cash, Personal Checks, Visa, Mastercard, American Express, or Discover.
We offer extended payment plans with our payment partners:
All of these companies have 12 or 24-month INTEREST-FREE plans available for your convenience! Balances over 60 days will incur a finance charge of 18% APR.
It is our pleasure to assist you in maximizing your insurance benefits by completing your claim forms. Your claims will be processed before the end of the treatment day if your carrier is up to date (in 70% of the cases). As a courtesy, we can estimate your co-payment. Please understand that this is only an estimate, and is based upon the information available to us. Some plans cover as little as 30% or as much as 100% of dental services, with most falling in the 40% to 80% range.
Some plans base the amount of benefit on a schedule of fees arbitrarily developed by insurance companies. For this reason, you may receive a lower percentage than the reimbursement level indicated in your dental plan. For example, if your plan states that it will pay 80% of the cost of a treatment, it means 80% of the fee arbitrarily determined by the insurance company and not the actual fee charged by our office. The insurance company is responsible to you, and not to our office. We will assist you in any way that we can. If, for any reason, we have not received your insurance carrier’s payment 90 days after the claim, the remaining balance will be due and payable by you, and subject to 18% APR.
Our financial menu provides many affordable payment choices for our patients. Feel free to discuss these options with any of our staff.
