There are over 3,000 different types of dental insurance plans. We do our best to help you understand and work with your insurance policy, find out the allowed annual maximum, any deductibles and eligibility for services. At Avondale Smiles, we will also submit all insurance claims for you and will fully attempt to help you receive full insurance benefits. However, you are ultimately personally responsible for your account. Please remember that an insurance policy is a contract between you, your employer and the insurance company, not us.
Because policies can change every year when contracts renew, often without clear communication, we encourage our patients to become familiar with their insurance coverage. We also recommend our patients take the time and understand which policy they are selecting during the Open Enrollment period. Changes in eligibility, maximums, or benefits could result in unexpected out of pocket costs. Ultimately, all charges for services are your financial responsibility should the insurance company not pay.
Please notify us as soon as possible of changes in:
- the insurance company we need to submit claims to
- your maximum
- your deductible
- allowable procedures or age limitations on services
If you have concerns about staying within your insurance policies limitations, please let us know in advance. At Avondale Smiles, we will do our best to help you monitor your remaining maximum benefit.
As your’s Family and Cosmetic Dentist we appreciate the trust you have put in us. We will do everything in our power to get you the dental treatment you need in the most cost effective way to you.
