Insurance

 

Our goal is to provide you with the best most comprehensive care possible.  We determine the optimal treatment for your specific needs not want the insurance companies dictate. Because virtually all insurance companies limit the procedures and materials that they will pay benefits on we have chosen to not be contracted with any dental insurance provider.  We accept ALL PPO plans but NO HMO / DPO plans. We are happy to do all the claim filing and required paperwork, and are very proficient in obtaining maximum benefits for you. If you are allowed to see a non-contracted dentist you will get benefits from the dental insurance company.  You will not be paid any benefits seeing us from any HMO / DPO dental insurance providers.  Some dental insurance companies like Delta Dental and Blue Cross will send the benefit payments directly to you.  In those cases, we expect to be paid at the time of service, and you will receive your benefit payment from the company in a few weeks usually.  Please understand that dental insurance is a benefit for you not us.  Each plan has very specific terms, limitations and exclusions, which are determined by the individual plan you or your employer has chosen.  You are fully responsible for any balances not covered or paid by the insurance company for any reason.  In order for us to obtain maximum benefits for you, we must have complete and accurate information, and for you to understand your plan and it’s limitations.

We must have:

Name of insurance company
Claims filing address and phone number
Subscriber’s name and birth date
Subscriber’s insurance ID number OR Social Security number, and Group number 

If you have more than one plan we need this information for every plan you might receive benefits from.

If you have any questions please contact us.  We are happy to discuss and help you understand your individual plan, it’s benefits, it’s limitations, and how to most effectively use it.




This list is NOT inclusive, and we would take any policy which does not require a person to only see a specific listed dentist (HMO DPO).
