Assignment of Benefits
Our office will accept an assignment of benefits from your insurance company with the provisions listed below. It is important to understand that the agreement regarding your dental benefits is between you, your employer, and your insurance company. The obligation you have with our practice is to pay for treatment regardless of the amount that may or may not be reimbursed by your insurance company. The following provisions identify our office policies governing insurance claims.
• Although we are willing to complete insurance forms and submit a claim on your behalf, we do not accept responsibility for the outcome of the transaction. Completing insurance forms and filing to your insurance company on your behalf is a courtesy we extend to you in an effort to save you time and to facilitate payment to our office from your insurance company. By having our office process your insurance forms, it is important that you understand that this does not eliminate your financial obligation for your treatment.
• We require you to sign this agreement and/or other necessary assignment documents that may be requires by your insurance company. This instructs your insurance company to make payments directly to our office.
• We require you to pay the estimated co-payment, which is the amount not covered by your insurance company, at the time treatment is rendered. The co-payment is ONLY an estimate of charges and may be found to be insufficient after review by your insurance company.
• Insurance payments are ordinarily received within 30-40 business days from the time of filing the claim. If your insurance company does not pay within 90 days, you will be responsible for the entire balance at that time. You will be reimbursed if payment is made afterwards.
• Our office does not guarantee that your insurance company will pay for treatment you receive from our practice. We perform routine insurance billing procedures upon verification of coverage. However, if for any reason your claim is denied, you will be responsible for paying the full amount for the treatment rendered.
• Returned checks are subject to a $50 admin fee. All balance older than 60 days will be subject to a collection action fee.
• There is a $75 charge for all no-show and cancellations of scheduled dental appointments WITHOUT a 24 hour notice.
• We respect our patients’ time so in order to provide timely, professional care, we do have a 15 minute rescheduling policy. Patients who are 15 minutes late to their scheduled appointments will be rescheduled.
