Insurance Responsibility

  • Please familiarize yourself with your insurance coverage since benefits vary among plans and may change at times depending on your coverage and employment. We will assist you in maximizing your full benefits, but please understand that your insurance is a contract between you, your employer and insurance company, not our office and your insurance company.
  • We file dental insurance as a courtesy to our patients. There is no direct relationship between our office and your insurance company. The type of plan chosen by you, and/or your employer determines your insurance benefits. We have no say in the selection of your insurance company, no control over the terms of your contract, the method of reimbursement or the determination of your insurance benefits. We do not have a contract with your insurance company, only you do. We are not responsible for how your insurance company handles its claims or for what benefits they pay on a claim. You are responsible for payment in full of any portion of our fees not covered by your dental plan.
  • We at no time guarantee what your insurance will or will not do with each claim. Once again, we file claims as a courtesy to you and the treatment plan is an estimate. You are responsible to pay the full balance that your dental insurance plan does not cover.
