At Herndon Family Dentistry, we don't want financial problems to stand in the way of a patient receiving needed dental care. This is why we try to structure dental treatment plans in a manner that will help to maximize insurance benefits in an attempt to minimize the pain of the entire financial process. We also offer various discounts to our senior citizens, public servants, military, veterans, and others. In order to thoroughly inform our patients, we always strive to discuss all treatment options of before we set forth into treatment. Please don't hesitate to inquire about all of our treatment and financial options.
For your convenience, we accept cash, personal checks, money orders and major credit cards. Payment is expected at the time services are performed. When more extensive dental care is necessary, financial arrangements can be made with our office before treatment proceeds. We also work with the healthcare financing company "Care Credit" to aid our patients with financing.
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 accounting staff will prepare all the necessary forms for your dental benefits. However, we remind you that your specific policy is an agreement between you 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. Our staff will gladly submit a pre-treatment estimate to your insurance company so that you will know what your benefits will be.
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.
