Insurance

One of the most persistent problems patients face is determining what is and isn’t covered under their insurance policies. There is tremendous variability in the policies written not only by different insurance companies but also with policies written for different employers by the same company.

Every plan written for a specific employer has different levels of coverage and eligibility requirements. Adding to this confusion is that only your medical insurance and some only by your dental insurance may actually cover some procedures we perform.

TO BETTER ASSIST YOU IN UNDERSTANDING YOUR INSURANCE, PLEASE BRING YOUR MEDICAL AND DENTAL INFORMATION ON YOUR FIRST VISIT WITH US.

We are familiar with many of the local policies: while some insurance still covers many procedures at 100 percent of our fee, lately this type of coverage has become more unusual and frequently exists only for very basic services such as exam and x-ray. In reality, many insurance plans now require payment of deductibles, co-pays, or have lower rates of reimbursement (often 75-90 percent). At the initial visit, our office will always try to inform you before we perform any procedures.

Please remember however, that ultimately you are responsible for the fees charged by our office and payment is due at the time service is rendered, unless you have made previous arrangements with us.
