We DO accept most traditional insurance plans, contact our office to verify acceptance of your plan. Arbor Dental does not participate in Health Management Organizations; however, we will be happy to file your insurance claims for you. We are a Fee-for-Service practice.
Currently, no. The Medicaid program, while well intended, comes nowhere close to covering our costs of being a small independent general office. We are currently unable to accommodate
providing our services under Medicaid coverage, but we do however provide services under the category of charitable care. When we provide charitable care to patients in need, we do so directly. In bypassing the State's inefficient Medicaid claims process, we can actually deliver charitable care more efficiently. We do try to connect people trying to use Medicaid coverage with clinics that accept Medicaid.
Some dental patients feel restricted by their dental insurance, in that they’re not able to select a provider that offer the level of quality care they are looking for. However, many fee-for-service dentists do accept insurance, even if they do not participate as a “preferred provider” in the plan that you carry.
Working outside of the network allows the fee-for-service dentist to charge a fair and fixed rate for specific procedures that they offer, rather than have their fees managed and dictated by a third-party insurance provider.
This measure allows dentists to utilize the highest quality labs and materials, rather than having to select lower-quality facilities in order to meet cost restrictions. As a result, patients will be able to receive excellent care that isn’t restricted by an insurance carrier’s contract..
Our response is that we will file with ALL insurance companies, but we are a fee-for-service practice which means we have found our patients receive far better personalized care and have a better experience in our practice than if we were in network with any insurance company. We will happily file for benefits with your insurance company and the insurance reimbursement goes directly back to you the patient/insurance subscriber.
Fee-for-service dentistry is a deterrent for some individuals when seeking out a new dentist. But the truth is that when you need the best care at a competitive rate, seeking out a fee-for-service dentist provides both you and your dental practice with more freedom in regard to what’s possible for your smile. The fair pricing allows your dentist to select the best procedures and methodologies, rather than the ones that will “only fit into the insurance plan’s package.” A fee for service practice by definition means that procedures are not determined by a certain fee schedule dictated by an insurance company. We do not bill treatment based on what and how an insurance company will pay. This can lead patients to believe that if insurance doesn’t cover or pay very much for a procedure, the recommended treatment must not be necessary, which is not the case at all and can cause detrimental effects to the health and welfare of patients. We cannot do quality dentistry if we are only concerned with what a certain insurance company will reimburse.
We are happy to file insurance claims on their patients’ behalf. Even though you are paying the office directly, we will manage all of the paperwork and forms that are needed to seek reimbursement for your plan’s coverage at no extra charge.
It’s important to note that insurance claims can take well over 30 days or more to file, process, and a reimbursement check sent out. Once it arrives, the payment should be made and mailed directly to your home address.
