It is our desire to provide the highest quality dental care to everyone. Our office wants all of our patients to be able to comfortably afford dental care. We proudly offer the following financial policy so that our patients can have the opportunity to decide which payment option best suits their needs. The following is a statement of Dr. Brenner’s office and financial policies. We ask that you please read, agree to, and sign before any treatment is rendered.
Treatment recommended by our doctors is never based on what your insurance company will pay. We request that you understand your benefit plan and be familiar with the dental benefits covered by your insurance in advance of your appointment so that together we can make the best treatment decisions. If you have any questions about your coverage, we encourage you to call your insurance company’s Customer Service Center to learn more about your coverage.
At the time of treatment, the patient/guarantor’s is responsible for the estimated portion that the insurance does not cover (also called “copay”). If for some reason your insurance carrier has denied the claim, or has not made payment within 60 days, the patient/guarantor is responsible for the balance in full.
Our goal is to maximize your insurance benefits. Please remember that dental insurance is not designed to cover 100% of the cost of all treatment. For example, you may choose treatment that your dental insurance excludes from coverage (i.e., a “non-covered service”). In those cases, you will be responsible for the full amount of those services. Due to pending claims and patient privacy issues, we do not always know how much an insurance company has already paid to another office or specialist, and the balance remaining on a yearly maximum.
Please be prepared to show your insurance card and driver’s license at the time of each visit. It is the patient/guarantor’s responsibility to provide any new information regarding insurance. Our office will gladly submit your insurance claim to your insurance carrier as a courtesy to you.
