Financial Policy

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. 

 
Insurance Assistance

As a service to our patients, our practice accepts and will file for you most dental insurance programs, including non-managed care, indemnity (traditional) and PPO out-of-network.  We believe that your health care decisions should be made exclusively by you and your doctor, therefore we do not subscribe to any managed care network.  Our staff will gladly submit a pre-treatment estimate to your insurance company so that you will know what your benefits will be.  Our helpful office team will prepare all the necessary forms for your dental benefits.  Our goal is to maximize your insurance benefits and make any remaining balance easily affordable.  If you have any questions regarding your insurance benefits, please don't hesistate to call our office at 402-397-3400 with your questions.

Please remember that your specific policy is an agreement between you and your insurance company and keep in mind that you are responsible for your total obligation should your insurance benefits result in less coverage than anticipated.

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 and non-covered procedures. Also, some companies take care of claims promptly while others delay payment for several months.

Financial Assistance

Our fees are based on the materials used and our time and experience necessary in performing your needed treatment.

Our goal is not to let a few of the more expensive procedures prevent you from benefiting from the quality of care you desire and need.  To facilitate this goal, we have developed the following financial options:

- A 5% discount is offered on operative fees in excess of $100 when paid in full by cash or check on the day of treatment.

- Major credit cards such as Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover are all accepted in our office.

- In addition, we offer a "lay-away" financing plan to help you.

- Treatments that require laboratory service: 50% is due at the initial treatment regardless of insurance coverage. 

If you would like to review our financial arrangement options in advance of treatment, please call 402-397-3400 and we will be happy to assist you.
