Financial Insurance

We are happy to file dental insurance claims for you. Dental benefit plans can vary from company to company with different procedures covered or not covered. Insurance companies base the amounts that they will pay toward your dental treatment on restricted fee schedules related to premium payments and geographical location. In other words, your insurance plan will pay only what it allows for each service, regardless of what the actual fee might be. Deductibles and co-payments are typically built into most plans and state law strictly regulates their required payment. Both our office and you as the policy beneficiary can be prosecuted if deductibles and co-payments are not collected. Your Employee Benefits Director can usually help you become familiar with your plan and its restrictions.
