Payment at the Time of Service:
We accept cash, checks, or credit cards at the time of the appointment. Major credit cards accepted by our office include Mastercard, Visa, Discover Card, and American Express.
Patients with Insurance Coverage:
We accept most dental insurances and Tenncare, Medicaid and Dentaquest. Dental insurance pays only a portion of the total treatment charge. The portion which the pays (Deductible and Co-Payment) can be handled according to the Payment Options outlined above. The portion that the insurance company pays can be assigned to our office,providing the insurance company will send benefits to us. Certain insurance companies will not send payments to us, but will send them to patients. In those situations, patients will pay for their services according to the options above, and will be reimbursed directly by their carriers to the extent they allow.
Assignment of Benefits:
Our office will accept assignment of benefits under the following conditions:
- All current pertinent personal and insurance information is provided prior to the first visit.
- The patient understands and signs the financial policy form.
If this information is not available prior to the first visit, the patient will be asked for payment in full for that day’s charges. After verification of insurance benefits, we will accept assignment of benefits as a partial payment of the total charges. You will be expected to pay your deductible, if applicable, and their portion, the patient will be responsible for paying the balance in full.
