- HealthChoice Provider
If we have received all of your insurance information on the day of the appointment, we will be happy to file your claim for you. Please be familiar with your insurance benefits. Usually, dental insurance pays a portion of your fee (often 50%-80%), leaving a balance that is due on the day of treatment. Keep in mind that you may also have a deductible – an amount that must be paid by you before your dental insurance benefits “kick in.”
The amount the insurance pays is called the usual, customary, or reasonable fee (UCR). We do not set this fee, and it may differ from not only our rate, but also from the rates of other dental practices in our area. We know dental insurance can be confusing, but rest assured that you will be completely comfortable with every aspect of your financial obligation and that we will answer any questions you may have!
By law, your insurance company is required to respond to each claim within 30 days of receipt. We file all insurance claims electronically, so your insurance company will receive your claim(s) within just days of your treatment. You are responsible for any balance on your account after 30 days, whether insurance has paid or not. If you have not paid your balance within 60 days a re-billing fee of 1.5% will be added to your account each month until it is paid in full. We will be glad to send a refund to you if your insurance pays us or if you have a credit balance.
PLEASE UNDERSTAND that we file dental insurance as a courtesy to our patients. 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. We can only assist you in estimating your portion of the cost of treatment. We at no time guarantee what your insurance will or will not do with each claim.
