At Dental 133, we are committed to providing you with the highest quality dental care, and our goal is to consistently present you with the most ideal dental solutions for your specific oral health issues. Our fees are a reflection of the excellent care we provide to our patients on a daily basis.
We also realize that everyone’s personal situation is unique and finances may be a concern when dental treatment is necessary. For this reason, we have worked hard to provide a variety of payment options to help you receive the dental care you need while respecting your budget. Here are some of the convenient payment options we offer.
As a courtesy we will file your insurance claim for you. We offer this service to you as a courtesy only and it is not meant to be a substitute for payment. We will attempt to collect from your insurance carrier their portion of the charges for your visit. We can not guarantee that they will pay any amount for your treatment. Each plan has different exclusions and limitations and those exclusions and limitations change over time. Our office recommends dental treatment based on medical necessity and not on whether your insurance company will cover a procedure. It is your responsibility to know your dental coverage. It is your responsibility to pay any amount not covered by your insurance company regardless of the reason. We will instruct your insurance carrier to send all payments directly to our office for reimbursement.
In addition, your plan has a dollar amount limitation (maximum) each year. Once this maximum is reached, your insurance company will cover no other services. If you have any questions regarding your dental benefit, please contact your employer or your insurance company directly.
Predetermination of Insurance Benefits
We will file, upon your request, a request for pre-determination of dental benefits from your insurance carrier. A pre-determination is a process whereby your insurance company tells you in advance of treatment what procedures may be covered and the amount of benefits your plan may pay towards those procedures and the amount you may be required to pay. A pre-determination of benefits reduces, but does not eliminate the risk of error in estimating your co-payment. A pre-determination is not a guarantee of coverage. A pre-determination sets forth your expected benefits based on the information provided to the carrier at the time of processing. If your plan changes, additional claims are received after the pre-determination is processed or your oral condition changes then the pre-determination is not valid and may need to be resubmitted. Depending on your insurance carrier, a pre-determination may take up to three weeks to process.
CareCredit is a healthcare "credit card" that allows you to finance dental treatment and pay it off with affordable monthly payments. There are even no-interest plans available based on your treatment needs and eligibility.
Our goal is to remove financial barriers so that all of our patients, regardless of age, income, and dental needs, can receive the care they need and desire. If you are interested in this service, please talk to us about this option and we will help you apply. To learn more, visit Care Credit's website now
