What is an insurance deductible? What is a yearly maximum benefit?
An insurance deductible is essentially the amount you are required to pay before your insurance provider can begin to cover your care. For example, if you have a deductible of $500, this means that you must pay at least $500 for services before your insurance provider can cover future services.
A yearly maximum benefit is the maximum amount of money a dental plan will allot to cover you during a benefit period. For example, if you have a maximum benefit of $1,000, your insurance provider will only cover costs up to that amount.
Do you accept my insurance?
We accept most major insurance plans (PPOs), as well as Medicaid, Medicare, and CHIP.
How much do I need to pay if I have insurance?
How much you will have to pay depends on the amount of coverage your insurance provider offers for your selected plan. Our staff will verify your dental benefit information and give you an estimate before your appointment. We will also help you with the filing process for any insurance claims during your appointment.
What payment methods do you accept?
CareCredit, Lending Club, cash, check, or major credit cards.
