Our practice accepts most major insurance policies and follows a fee-for-service protocol; in that we collect all fees at the time services are rendered. Keep in mind insurance is never a guarantee of payment and that is why we verify insurance prior to your arrival. After your initial evaluation, a treatment plan will be discussed and agreed upon. If you would like to start your treatment immediately we will collect the fee schedule amount based on your insurance provisions. Should you decide to wait for necessary treatment we will predetermine your treatment plan and determine insurance coverage with your insurance carrier. Insurances generally reply anywhere from 3-12 weeks with an estimate of benefits. They inform us what procedures are covered, which ones aren’t and what amounts the patient will be responsible for. At that point we will accept the insurance as payment and all you have to pay is your co-payment.
