At Great Neck & Mid-Island Dental Associates, payment is expected at the time a dental service is performed. We accept payment in the form of cash, check, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express. Alternative financial arrangements can be made with our office manager if your treatment involves dental insurance or some form of extensive dental care. We encourage you to inquire about our financing options so we can work with you to create a payment plan that is designed to fit your financial circumstances.
If your treatment is covered by dental insurance, our billing department will prepare all of the forms necessary to process payment. However, it must be stated that your dental insurance policy is an agreement between you and your insurance provider, not between your insurance provider and our office. While we can make no guarantee regarding estimated coverage, we will do our best to ensure you receive the most coverage possible. However, you are ultimately responsible for your total obligation if your insurance benefits yield less coverage than anticipated. We can submit a pre-treatment estimate if you would like to learn what your expected insurance coverage will be. Generally, your insurer will send you a detailed response to this request within four to six weeks.
Cosmetic Dentistry and Insurance
Most dental insurance policies do not cover cosmetic dentistry procedures. However, insurance policies often provide partial benefits if a patient’s teeth are severely damaged or require restoration work on previously placed fillings, dental bonding, or dental crowns. Most insurance providers will pay an estimated 80 percent for the cost of silver fillings on bicuspids and molars. In cases in which a more expensive tooth-colored or porcelain filling is used, the insurance provider may pay a percentage based on the cost of silver fillings. We are proud to accept Cigna PPO.
