We are committed to providing you with the best possible care. Your fee for services includes your visit with the doctor based on treatment provided. In addition, attention to your care requires that the doctor and staff spend time working for you outside of direct patient visits.
The financial obligation for treatment rendered is your responsibility. We are happy to offer flexible payment options and as a courtesy, we will file and accept insurance on your behalf. Please be aware that some, and perhaps all, of the services rendered may be non-covered or not considered usual and customary under the terms of your policy. You are responsible for payment regardless of any insurance company’s arbitrary determination of fees.
Treatment plans are presented prior to commencing treatment. This provides you with a complete understanding of procedures to be performed and the costs associated. If at any time it is necessary to change the treatment plan and additional charges or credits are applicable, this will be explained before services are rendered.
The following are specific financial policies of Dentalcare Associates:
1. Unless previous arrangements have been made, fees for treatment rendered are payable at the time of scheduling. For patients with insurance, any co-payment or deductible is payable at time of scheduling. Insurance benefits not received within 60 days of submission become the full responsibility of the patient.
2. We accept the following forms of payment: Cash, Check, Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express. Personal checks are not accepted from patients who are not previously registered with the office.
3. There may be a fee of $75.00 for appointments missed without 48 hours notice.
4. There will be a $25.00 fee incurred for all returned checks.
5. Accounts with outstanding balances over 60 days will incur a finance charge of 1.5% monthly (18% annually).

All accounts more than 90 days delinquent are forwarded to IC Systems and will affect your credit rating. A $35.00 processing fee will be incurred for delinquent accounts.
We are committed to providing you the best possible care and payment arrangements are considered part of your treatment. If there are any questions regarding the financial aspect of your treatment, please ask to speak with a financial coordinator.
