Financial and Insurance Policy
While our office is more than willing to submit insurance claims on your behalf if we are out-of-network, we are doing so as a courtesy.
Treatment is not determined by your dental insurance plan, it is determined by what Dr. Weil deems necessary at the time of visit. Procedures covered or not covered are the responsiblity of the subscriber/member.
WE ARE IN-NETWORK PROVIDERS FOR:
CIGNA PPO, DELTA DENTAL PPO & PREMIER, METLIFE PPO, UNITED CONCORDIA PPO, & AETNA PPO ONLY
For any other insurance company, we are considered out-of-network. We don’t accept any DMO Plans. We will gladly answer questions to the best of our knowledge about your plan, but it is your responsibility to know your benefits and eligibility. All insurance claims and payments are always the responsibility of the Parent or Guardian of the patient whose name and signature appears below regardless if they are the subscriber of the insurance. We are not responsible for failure to file a claim or for improperly filed claims. After insurance claims have been filed and payment received, you are responsible for any remaining balance. Dr. Weil’s treatment is what he deems is in the best interest of the patient, not what is covered or not covered by your insurance plans. Balances are due upon receipt of the statement. All outstanding balances must be paid in full prior to future visits.
If a payment plan is set up, balances must be paid off within 90 days unless other arrangements are discussed. If these payments are not made in a timely manner, you may be charged an APR of 19.99% and/or a late fee of $10 per month the balance remains unaddressed. This also applies for any overdue balance. If credit card is saved on file I understand it will be auto charged for any outstanding balance. If an account becomes delinquent and is subsequently sent to a collection agency, you will be responsible for any attorney’s fees which are incurred.
Late arrivial to scheduled appointments may result in cancellation of the appointment and may be subject to a fee.
We have a 24 hour cancellation policy for appointments. Failure to cancel an appointment 24 hours in advance may result in a charge of $50.00.
I UNDERSTAND AND AGREE TO THE ABOVE STATED INFORMATION AND THAT I AM ULTIMATLEY FINANCIALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR SERVICE PERFORMED.
