Your dental and/or medical insurance may provide coverage for a portion of your treatment. However, you the patient are ultimately responsible for any balance due on your account. Insurance is a benefit to you and we will gladly assist you with submitting your claim forms. We ask that a portion of your treatment fee be paid at time of service if your insurance is active and the yearly maximum has not been met. We will gladly assist you in contacting your insurance company to inquire as to what benefits you are entitled to. Insurance helps to offset portions of your treatment; however in some cases procedures may not be covered by your policy. If you do not have active dental coverage then we offer Care Credit, which offers no interest payment plans. For your convenience we accept Visa, MasterCard, and Discover credit cards.
Prior to receiving treatment an estimate will be given. This will happen at the time of consultation, or over the phone (219-934-0404) if you do not require an initial consultation for treatment. We highly suggest that you have a formal consultation with Dr. Pulver so that you get the best estimate for your treatment. This allows us to best inform you of your treatment plan and payment options. Also, we are then able to submit a predetermination of consideration of benefits from your insurance, therefore receiving an accurate estimate of payment for your treatment which allows us to estimate your out-of-pocket responsibility.
For your convenience, we accept Visa, MasterCard and Discover. We deliver the finest care at the most reasonable cost to our patients, therefore payment is due at the time service is rendered unless other arrangements have been made in advance. If you have questions regarding your account, please contact us at Pulver Oral Surgery Phone Number 219-934-0404. Many times, a simple telephone call will clear any misunderstandings.
Please remember you are fully responsible for all fees charged by this office regardless of your insurance coverage.
We will send you a monthly statement. Most insurance companies will respond within four to six weeks. Please call our office if your statement does not reflect your insurance payment within that time frame. Any remaining balance after your insurance has paid is your responsibility. Your prompt remittance is appreciated. We can make arrangements for a monthly payment plan, but that must be implemented prior to the actual procedure.
