We accept assignment of estimated insurance benefits as a courtesy to our patients. Please note that your dental insurance is a contract between you and the insurance company. It is not a contract between the dentist and the insurance company. Our usual and customary fees, which are modest with our geographical area, are a reflection of our commitment to excellence. All estimated co-pays and deductibles are due at the time of service.
All insurance claims are submitted within 24 hours. However, we have found that some insurance companies do not reimburse us within an adequate timeframe. After 30 days, we will re-submit the claim as an added courtesy to you. If the claim is still not paid 60 days later, you will be responsible for the total amount. We strongly recommend that you follow up with your insurance company to ensure prompt processing of claims.
Balances remaining after sixty (60) days may accrue interest and may be sent to a collection agency.
Angel Dental Care will not accept secondary dental insurances. We recommend that you read your policy carefully to be fully aware of any restrictions that may apply to your dental benefits. For your convenience, we may process your secondary insurance claim for you for a small fee of twenty dollars ($20) per claim.
Patients who are enrolled in any HMO dental plan (managed care dental plans), please remember that your plan offers you comprehensive treatment at a discount of our usual and customary fees. In accordance with your contract, all payments are due in full at the time of service, unless other arrangements have been made. Any treatment not covered by your plan will be charged from our usual and customary fee schedule.
In the event that insurance does not cover your treatment or is cancelled/terminated for any reason, or cannot be verified for any reason, the patient or responsible party will be responsible for the entire fee amount including the insurance portion.
