We are in network with most dental insurance companies including all forms of Nevada Medicaid and are currently accepting new patients.
Our office is happy to file your dental insurance claim for you but we require that you supply your insurance information to us on or before the date of service. It is important for you to be familiar with your insurance benefits as we will collect from you the estimated amount insurance is not expected to pay. We file all insurance electronically so your insurance company will receive the claim on the same day of service. We will allow a maximum of 45 days from the date of service for your insurance to process the claim. You are responsible for any balance on your account after 45 days from the date of service. Please keep us informed of any insurance changes such as policy name, insurance company address, or a change of employment.
Please understand that we file dental insurance as a courtesy to our patients. We are not responsible for how your insurance company processes the claim or for the benefits available on the individual policy. We can only assist you in estimating your portion of the cost of treatment. We at no time guarantee what your insurance will or will not pay on each claim. We also cannot be responsible for any errors in filing your insurance; once again we file claims as a courtesy to you.
Dental Insurance FAQ
We are in network with most dental insurances companies including all forms of Nevada Medicaid and are currently accepting new patients.
When estimating the cost of dental treatment, all deductibles, co-payments and percentages of coverage must be taken into consideration. Typical insurance companies will require an annual deductible ranging from $25-$100 per patient as well as co-payments for certain procedures. These co-payments are based upon the percentage of coverage that is outlined in the policy holder’s specific plan. Insurance companies will not share this information with our office. It is up to the policy holder to understand the specific coverage of their dental insurance policy.
Insurance companies set their own fee schedule to determine their “allowable” fee. These allowable fees are significantly lower than our regular office fees. Each policy holder’s benefits can also change on an annual basis. Our office will ask at each appointment if there has been any change to the insurance policy. It is again imperative that each patient understands the benefits and coverage’s of their individual insurance policy.
Dental insurance is meant to be an aid in receiving dental care. Many patients think that their insurance pays 100% of all dental fees. Unfortunately this is not true. The percentage paid by your insurance company varies from policy to policy. Our office stresses that it is the policy holder’s responsibility to understand the benefits and coverage of their individual policy.
