During a patient’s exam and consultation process a treatment plan of recommendations will be thoroughly discussed, as well as the financial aspects of treatment. Dr. Barry and Dr. Love will inform patients of all aspects of treatment before they perform services.
PAYMENT IS DUE AT THE TIME OF SERVICES unless other financial arrangements have been made with our financial coordinators. Most insurance plans are accepted and for your convenience we will assist you by processing and filing all insurance claims. Our office will estimate your insurance benefits and based upon standard dental benefits and collect your portion at the time services are rendered. ALL INSURANCE COPAYS ARE DUE THE SAME DAY OF SERVICE.
Our office will accept assignment of your benefits from your insurance company, which simply means we will wait for payment due per the particular insurance contract. Insurance benefits by law should be received within 30 days, which after a period of 60 days if payment is not received the patient is responsible for all fees. When your insurance has paid a claim or after 60 days if there is a remaining balance you will receive a statement from our office. We do our best to maximize your insurance benefit and may appeal on your behalf regarding unfavorable decisions.
At Lifetime Dental Health, we want to do everything we can to ensure you and your family receive the quality dental care you need, without worrying about your finances. That is why we are proud to accept most major insurance plans. We are currently accepting the following plans:
Aetna, Anthem, Cigna, Delta Dental,United Concordia, MetLife, Guardian, Stratose, & Ameritas.
We also understand that for larger treatment plans patients need other options. If treatment requires several visits you can pay half of the balance when the treatment is started and the remaining balance will be due on the final appointment. If these options are not flexible enough for you we are pleased to offer patients a plan through GE Capital Consumer Card Company.
For your convenience, our office has developed a full range of payment options to choose from in order to make this dentistry affordable for you.
- Personal Check
- Visa & Mastercard
- Patient financing programs (CareCredit)
- Assignment of Insurance Benefits
