We will file for each patient any insurance benefits for which they are eligible. Any insurance benefits will be paid by the insurance company directly to you. Therefore, the entire amount for the procedures performed are due at the time of service, and must be paid in full for services to commence unless arrangements for financing have been made. You should understand that most insurance company contracts still require significant out-of-pocket payments by the patient, and any amount not paid by insurance is still your responsibility to pay completely before treatment is completed.

If you’re covered by an “indemnity” or PPO insurance plan, you usually may visit any dentist that accepts insurance (many dentists don’t by the way) and receive your benefits, but you’re responsible to pay the dentist’s regular fee regardless of the amount your insurance pays. We accept all indemnity and PPO plans. Both types of plans have an annual deductible, annual maximum, co-pays on most non-preventive procedures, and a contractual amount they will pay after co-pays and deductibles for each procedure. This amount is dependent on what your employer pays for your premium to the insurance company and varies by company with the same insurance carrier. The amount is labeled “usual & customary charge” by the insurance company to make it sound like a standard rate, but it’s an arbitrary amount that is different for each company based upon the premium paid by your employer. Don’t be fooled by the insurance company or your HR department into thinking that it’s all you should pay; rather, it’s all your company is willing to pay toward your dental health. The use of the “usual & customary” instead of “your company’s contracted payment rate” is a true scam to mislead patients by insurance carriers.

DMO plans are like “in-network”” PPO plans, but benefits can be paid only to dentists who are members of the network. Therefore, with a DMO plan, if you go to a non-network dentist you will get no insurance benefits at all. Interestingly, DMO plans pay participating dentists a fee if you don't go see them in a given month, which is often more than they pay the dentist if you do see them. In fact, DMO dentists lose money if you go to them for X-rays, cleanings, diagnosis, or fillings because they are not paid by the insurance company to provide those services. Given this crazy business model for DMO', our office is not a member of any DMO plan. Instead, we offer patients without insurance, and those stuck in DMO plans, our own discount plan.
