For your convenience, we offer several means of payment for your periodontal care. Payment is expected at the time services are performed. When more extensive dental care is necessary, financial arrangements can be made with our office.
Option 1: Full Payment at Time of Service
For your convenience, payments may be made with cash, personal check, MasterCard, Visa or Discover. We will make every effort to work with your insurance company to receive all available benefits. Your estimated co-payments are due at the time of service.
Option 2: Outside Financing
An excellent option for patients who would prefer an extended payment plan. We work with the Citi Health Card, a healthcare finance card that offers interest-free financing. If you have any questions, please give us a call. We can be reached by phone at (617) 965-3830.
As a service to our patients, our practice accepts most dental insurance programs, including non-managed care, indemnity (traditional) and PPO out-of-network. We are not part of any managed care network. Our business manager will prepare all the necessary forms for your dental benefits. However, we remind you that your specific policy is an agreement between you, your employer, and your insurance company. Please keep in mind that you are responsible for your total obligation should your insurance benefits result in less coverage than anticipated. We will gladly submit a pre-treatment estimate to your insurance company upon request.
The fees charged for services rendered to those who are insured are the usual and customary fees charged to all our patients for similar services. Your policy may base its allowances on a fixed fee schedule, which may or may not coincide with our usual fees. You should be aware that different insurance companies vary greatly in the types of coverage available. Also, some companies take care of claims promptly while others delay payment for several months.
