IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING DENTAL INSURANCE:
Dealing with your dental
insurance can be a confusing process. We
have prepared this document to help you better understand the complexities of
the dental insurance relationship. To
begin, we feel obligated to highlight a misconception – dental insurance is not designed to pay for all dental care.
Unfortunately, dental insurance has not kept pace with the rising cost
of care and economic inflation. Most
contracts have limitations and/or various degrees of patient responsible
co-payments. By which, we do not have
access to the contractual information as stipulated by your employer (or self
as Individual). The responsibility of acquiring awareness of contractual information is
All levels of payments and
percentages by insurance companies, including allowed fees, downgrades, and
exclusions are governed by the premiums paid by your employer (or self as
Individual). They are not stipulated by
the actual dental procedure charges. Our
fees are based upon a combination of our costs, our time invested, and our
constant dedication to providing our patients with the highest quality of
dental care. The treatment recommended by our office is
never based on what your insurance company will cover. Your insurance contract should not govern
your treatment acceptance.
Please understand that the dental
insurance contract is between the insurance company, your employer (or self as
Individual), and the insured. We are an unrelated party to your insurance
contract. Our obligation is to
process the applicable fee schedule and claims as stipulated by our contract
with insurance companies. The subscriber
bears the ultimate financial responsibility.
We do our very best to estimate insurance reimbursement and process
claims on your behalf. Therefore, we cannot guarantee benefits,
coverage, or insurance payment.
You have the right to appeal any claim denial. After you have contacted your insurance
company for appeal instructions, if necessary, we will be happy to assist you
in the process. As always, you may feel
free to ask any member of our staff for clarification on services, billing, and
insurance claim processing.
We trust this information to be
helpful. We strongly suggest that you review your insurance contract thoroughly.
