Will you file my insurance and then bill me for my portion?
Whether you are new to our dental office or a long-time patient, we want to make sure you understand your payment options. If you choose to pay for your treatment with dental insurance, we will do everything we can to submit the proper paperwork to your insurance company first.
Once we determine the extent of your insurance benefits, we can then figure out what your leftover payment portion will be. We always collect your co-insurance or co-payment amount at the time of your visit. Payment is due at the time of service, and our friendly dental office staff will assist you with your transaction. If there is any anticipated balance due after your co-insurance or co-payment, we can accept your full payment or discuss a timeframe for you to make payments. We resolve most insurance co-payments within 30 to 60 days of dental service.
Our front office team has years of experience handling insurance claims and can help explain your benefits and your payments to you. If you have additional questions about your dental insurance payments in Lake Charles, LA, you can always call us at (337) 474-4892 to speak with a member of our clinical staff. We are here to support you, and we will help you navigate the complicated dental insurance world.
