A Word About Our Payment Policy
We make every effort to keep down the cost of your care and accept most types of insurance. You can help by paying in full after each visit. You may request an estimate of the charges for any procedure or surgery.
We feel that everyone benefits when there is a definite and clear financial agreement prior to treatment. To make your financial arrangement as easy as possible, we accept the following methods of payment: Cash, Check, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, and CareCredit.
Before your appointment, please download our payment policy form, sign and date it, and bring it with you to your appointment.
We will be happy to file your insurance as a courtesy; however, any balance still due after 90 days will become the patient’s responsibility. Any balance still due after 120 days will be charged a finance charge (1%) per month until paid in full. Your insurance is a contract between you, your employer, and the insurance company. It is the patient’s responsibility to know their insurance benefits and to make sure that any claims are paid within a timely manner. Any procedure not covered by a patient’s insurance will be the responsibility of the patient. This will include any procedure that their insurance denies as medically or dentally unnecessary.
Self-pay patients, or patients not utilizing insurance coverage, with balances over $1,500 and making full payment on the day of service, will receive a 5% discount. (Cash, Check, and Credit all apply)
In the event of a returned check, there will be a $20 fee charged to that patient’s account, and the account must be paid in full within 10 days to avoid further collection activity. If an account is turned over to an attorney or collection agency, the patient/parent/guardian is responsible for all reasonable attorney and/or collection agency fees that may be charged in addition to their balance due.
