Dental Insurance (Benefits) Information Atlanta, GA
Our Practice work with many different insurance companies. Some companies offer many different dental and medical plans and these companies can change benefits, co-pays, and deductibles many times throughout the year. Given that, we do our best to provide you with accurate coverage estimates based on the information available to us. At times, it is almost impossible to accurately estimate a patient’s insurance co-payment. Many insurance companies will not give out fees until after your treatment is completed. Dealing with these companies can be difficult and time consuming. As a courtesy, we ask that you keep us informed of any change to your insurance so that all information about you and your insurance is current.
Please call Northside Periodontics & Implants Phone Number 770-394-0007 if you have any questions.
Although we will gladly file a claim on your behalf, you may wish to submit the claim yourself. In general, insurers process claims filed directly by patients faster than those filed by service providers (dental offices).
Further, most dental insurance policies are limited and often only pay for a portion of the procedure(s) that may need to be done.
The majority of dental plans reimburse approximately 30-80 percent of treatment costs. Every insurance policy has different guidelines for coverage and reimbursement. The majority of dental plans reimburse approximately 30-80 percent of treatment costs. Following your evaluation with Dr. Benson, our Treatment Coordinator will provide you with a treatment plan that contains an estimation of insurance coverage vs. your expected copay. Please keep in mind that the estimate provided is not a guarantee of payment and that all claims are subject to review upon processing.
