Our payment standards and financial assistance options
Our fees are based on the quality of the products and materials we use, and our experience in performing your scheduled treatment. We realize that every patient’s financial situation is different. Our financial policy is intended to facilitate excellent service to you while minimizing our administrative costs.
We kindly ask for payment on the day of your scheduled appointment. We request payment in full or, if utilizing insurance, the estimated patient portion not covered by insurance. As a courtesy, we will gladly process your insurance claims and estimate the amount not covered by insurance. It is only an estimate. Also, If covered by two insurance companies, be aware of the “duplication clause” and verify if your secondary insurance has standard coordination of benefits or not.
We Accept Mastercard, Visa, American Express and Discover. Credit cards do not require a signature unless the amount is over $50.
All incurred charges are ultimately the responsibility of the patient regardless of insurance coverage and are due within 45 days of treatment. Any balance over 90 days old will be subject to a 2.0% monthly finance charge. Returned checks or closed accounts are subject to a $35.00 fee. If a check is returned cash, Visa, MasterCard, Discover or American Express will be requested for payment.
Although we are unable to arrange payment plans through our office, we offer financing through a third party agency, Care Credit. This company can offer low, and in some cases, no interest payment plans. You can apply online at www.carecredit.com and usually receive approval in less than 15 minutes.
We do our best to maintain a schedule that benefits all of our patients. If you are unable to make the time we reserved for you, we kindly request a notice of three business days if you need to cancel. If you need to reschedule your appointment with less than 24 hours notice, you may be charged $50 per hour booked to cover incurred expenses. We will request a deposit of $100 or 10% of expected treatment cost, whichever is greater, when rescheduling an appointment that was cancelled with less than 24 hours notice.
