Flexible Payment Plans
Flexible Payment Options
At CORE Dental Care, we understand that dental treatment can be an investment. Sometimes the financial commitment is unexpected or something that a patient needs a little help with. As a service to our patients, we are happy to offer flexible payment options to help patients afford the dental care they want, need, and deserve. We make it our goal to never leave patients without proper care; our highly trained staff can discuss financing options with patients in our private consultation area.
For your convenience, we accept the following methods of payment:
- Cash (5% discount applied)
- Care Credit
- Dental Benefit plans (Insurance)
Dental benefits and insurance plans
We are pleased to be able to accept ALL dental benefit plans (insurance plans), and we are very familiar with the majority of the policies in our area, so we know we can help you make the most of your plan benefits (as long as that plan lets you choose your doctor). If you are unsure of whether your dental plan allows you to choose your own dentist, we advise you to contact your dental plan provider for details.
It is important to know that Dr. Nelsen is an “unrestricted provider” with most PPO plans. Being an out-of-network provider allows her to offer or discuss ALL treatment options with patients, and not just the contracted ones.
Many plans cover the majority of common dental procedures; however, most will leave a remaining portion that is the responsibility of the patient. Rarely, the claim is rejected in full. If a plan does not pay, or pay as much as estimated, the balance is the patient’s responsibility. We will discuss all fees with patients before treatment is performed to avoid surprises and make sure it fits within your budget.
No Surprise Fees
Prior to any dental treatment being done with Dr. Chalsey Nelsen, we will review the planned treatment and associated fees with you. During this consultation, our financial coordinator will also provide you with the estimated coverage amount that we can expect from your dental plan provider. It is important for patients to know that depending on the dental plan carrier, some procedures may not be covered benefits, and ultimately, the financial responsibility will be that of the patient.
As a courtesy to our patients, CORE Dental Care offers third party financing through Care Credit. Qualified patients can set up low or no interest monthly payments to budget dental care. Click on the logo for an online application.
