“Smiles are great investments: the more you collect, the better you feel.” –Unknown
There are many different agreements between insurance carriers and their subscribers. Each contract provides a different benefit. Unlike ordinary dental insurance, orthodontic insurance usually provides each insured person with a lifetime maximum benefit for orthodontic services. This benefit is paid as a percentage of the orthodontic fee until the maximum is reached.
We Can Help You Submit Claim Forms
We will gladly submit insurance claims for care rendered in our office. However, our primary financial relationship is with our patients and their families, and not with their respective insurance companies. Final responsibility for collection of benefits from your insurance company rests with the insured party. We will accept payments from your insurance company assigned to us by the insured. Such payments will be credited accordingly to your account. Simply provide us with the name, address, telephone number of your insurance carrier, the subscriber ID number, and the company group number. If your company requires verification of continuing treatment, you may send them copies of your cancelled checks or cash receipts. If your insurance carrier provides a form for verification of continuing treatment, we will gladly complete the signature portion.
A variety of payment plans are available for payment of professional fees. Specific terms will be discussed once the need for treatment and associated fees are determined.
