Financial Policy

 

Thank you for choosing CORE Dental Care as your dental healthcare provider. We are committed to providing you with the highest quality lifetime dental care, so that you may attain optimum oral health. The following is a statement of our financial policy, which we require that you read, agree to, and sign prior to any treatment. Payment is due at the time service is provided. Our office accepts cash, personal checks, credit cards and outside patient financing. Please let one of our treatment coordinators know if you would like more information about financing options.

Please note: Returned checks will be subject to additional fees. In the case it becomes necessary for our office to enlist a collection service and/or legal debt collection assistance, you will be responsible for, and agree to pay to the office, all collection and/or legal fees, costs and expenses.

Do you have insurance?

We must emphasize that as your dental provider, our relationship is with you, our patient, not with your insurance company. Your insurance policy is a contract between you, your employer, and your insurance company.

As a courtesy to our patients, we will help you process all of your insurance claims. Please understand that we will provide an insurance estimate to you, however, it is not a guarantee that your insurance will pay exactly as estimated. Your insurance company and your plan benefits will determine the amount paid. We will, of course, do all we can to make sure your estimate is as accurate as possible. If your insurance company has not made payment within 60 days, we will ask that you contact your insurance company to make sure payment is expected. If payment is not received or your claim is denied, you will be responsible for paying the full amount at that time.

We ask that you sign this form and/or any other necessary documents that may be required by your insurance company. This form instructs your insurance company to make payment directly to our office.

We ask that you pay the deductible and co-payment, which is the estimated amount, not covered by your insurance company, by cash, check, credit card or patient financing at the time we provide the service to you.

We will cooperate fully with the regulations and requests of your insurance company that may assist in the claim being paid. Our office will not, however, enter into a dispute with your insurance company over any claim.

 

We thank you for the opportunity to serve your dental health care needs and welcome any questions you may have concerning your care or our financial policy.
