Fees, Insurance and Payment Options
The fees in our office are based on the care, skill, time and judgement required to provide the service. We will discuss the fee for your treatment with you before treatment. Payment is due at the time services are rendered. If other arrangements are necessary, please discuss this with our patient treatment coordinator before your appointment.
We will do everything we can to help you get the most from your insurance coverage. Please bring one of your insurance forms with the patient information filled out and the authorization signed.
Specialty exams and consults may not be covered; therefore, you are responsible for this fee at your first visit.
We have found that most insurance plans pay 50-80 percent of a preset schedule of fees established by the insurance company. Benefits are determined by the type of plan chosen by your employer.
We will be happy to file a predetermination prior to treatment. This simply tells the insurance carrier what we plan to do and what it will cost. The insurance carrier will then advise you and our office, in writing, exactly what they will pay towards your treatment. We can accept insurance assignment of benefits as payment or partial payment only after we have this information. Keep in mind that most policies have a $25 to $100 deductible and a yearly maximum.
We pride ourselves on communication with our patients. Our thorough understanding of your insurance benefits is important to our relationship with you.
We accept cash, checks and credit cards (Visa and Mastercard). We also offer a variety of finance options, including CareCredit. You will have an opportunity to discuss payment arrangements with our patient treatment coordinator at your initial treatment conference, but you may also call the office at any time, 274-1950, to ask about financial arrangements.
