The cost of your orthodontic treatment may vary depending on your individual needs and treatment plan. Our staff will discuss with you the cost of your treatment and your payment plan options, so you can make the best choice for you, and your smile. We will work with you to create a payment plan that fits your budget, so you will know what to expect before beginning treatment.
We ask that you provide us with all your insurance information we would need to help determine the benefits you may have available. We ask you to bring your insurance card and if you would bring a completed Health History Forms when you come for your initial appointment. We will contact your insurance company to confirm benefits and answer any questions you may have.
For your convenience, we offer an Automatic Electronic Bank Account Withdrawal Service, as well as Visa and MasterCard for flexible no-interest payment plans. Our staff members are willing to assist you and your family whenever possible to choose the best plan for you.
How does orthodontic insurance work? There are many different agreements between insurance carriers and their subscribers, and each contract provides a different benefit. However, orthodontic insurance generally differs from regular dental insurance in that each insured individual usually has a lifetime maximum benefit for orthodontic services. This benefit is paid as a percentage of the orthodontic fee (diagnostic records, initial fee, monthly payments, etc.) until the benefit maximum has been reached. Charges for lost or broken appliances may not be covered by insurance.
How does this office assist you with insurance? For your convenience we will gladly assist you in submitting both predetermination and initial insurance claims pertaining to charges for care rendered in our office. However, please be aware our primary financial relationship is with our patients or their families and not with their respective insurance companies. Final responsibility for collection of benefits from your insurance company rests with the insured party. Our professional services are rendered and charged directly to the patient or their family and they are responsible for payment of all fees incurred.
