Mercury Safe: Financial FAQ
Do you take my insurance?
Our office is happy to cooperate with patients who have dental insurance benefits. We will complete all forms pertaining to your claims and predeterminations. We send them promptly to your benefits carrier, usually electronically. It is our goal to help you obtain the benefits to which you are entitled because we know how important it is.
Insurance is meant to cover basic dental care. Please understand that treatment that we recommend for your healthy teeth, gums, and smile is determined by your needs and may not always align with the benefits of your particular insurance plan.
We are not a member of any network for insurance plans but we do accept assignment of benefits for insurance. Some insurance companies will only send payment to the patient; in this case, we have you pay at the time of service and you will be reimbursed by your insurance. If your insurance will send payment to our office, you will pay your estimated portion at the time of service and you will be responsible to pay any unpaid balance, once your insurance has paid.
Do you have Financial Options or Payment Plans?
We do not want your finances to become a barrier to receiving the dental care you need. We are always happy to discuss financial options and how they pertain to your individual situation. We will make sure that you understand the fees associated with your care and come up with a plan that works for you prior to treatment. To help our patients who don’t have insurance, we have Dental Wellness Plans.
Dental Wellness Plans
Our three plans support your decision to acquire and keep healthy teeth, gums and smile. These preventative plans may be just what you need to get back on track. In addition to covering your preventative needs, you will receive discounts on dental treatment and special offers. Ask your Hygienist which Dental Wellness Plan works for you!
