Insurance Information for our Greenbelt Dental Offices
Several members of our administrative team are experts in dental insurance. They have years of experience helping our patients maximize any dental benefits they are eligible to receive.
Dental insurance like other forms of health insurance is an ever changing, complex industry. We are happy to submit all claims on your behalf and include any supportive x-rays, photographs, and narratives that companies may request. We often assist with strategic prioritization and phasing of treatment to bridge benefit periods to decrease patient out-of-pocket expense.
If your insurance plan pays us directly, we will only ask to collect your predicted portion. If the plan pays less than anticipated, each patient is responsible for their own balance. We will make every effort to accurately predict your insurance benefits but sometimes insurance companies do not share exact benefit information or change benefits without patient’s knowledge. Even after receiving a written predetermination of benefits, insurance companies don’t guarantee the exact amount they will pay. To help you in receiving your maximum benefits, it is very important that we receive copies of insurance communications. The Explanation of Benefits (EOB) is sometimes only sent to the patient. This is a crucial document for appeals and billing of any secondary policies. Please bring a copy of your EOB to us.
As you may see, maximizing dental insurance benefits is complicated. Let us help you with it! Please refer to Interest Free Financing for additional payment options.
