Lumbertown Dental Wellness wants to help every patient to maximze their insurance benefits. We will help by sending claim forms and any supporting documentation that is appropriate including narrative reports and copies of x-rays and photos.
Please understand that what is called dental insurance is not insurance in the typical sense. It is a dental benefit to help in paying your dental expenses.
While we understand that getting your money back from the insurance company is important, we never lose sight of our first priority - YOUR DENTAL HEALTH. Thus, we do not allow insurance companies to dictate your care. You will decide with Dr. Donley what is best for your dental health and then proceed with the care you need and deserve. For this reason, Lumbertown Dental Wellness is an out-of-network provider and not a contracted employee of any insurance company.
Having dental insurance or a dental benefit plan can make it easier to get the dental care you need. However, most dental benefit plans do not cover all dental procedures. Your dental coverage is not based on what you need or what your dentist recommends. It is based on how much your employer pays into the plan.
When deciding on treatment, dental benefits should not be the only thing you consider. Your treatment should be determined by you and your dentist.
Warning Limiting your dental treatment to the benefits of your dental plan may be hazardous to your
We understand that every patient's financial situation is different. No matter what your circumstances are, you should be offered the best dentistry possible. Therefore, we provide a variety of financial options to help you receive the care that you need and deserve. You may apply for any of our financial options and have a reply back in as little as a few minutes. You will know what treatment you need and your financial options before you leave your appointment. We will prepare a written agreement that explains these options and your decision.
Prosper Healthcare Lending
Cash, Check, Credit Cards: We ask for the appointment fee to be paid at the time of service for your first visit. If you have dental benefits, all co-payments are to be paid on the day of your scheduled appointment. For major treatment needs, various payment options can be discussed prior to scheduling treatment.
Insurance: We accept most dental insurances, but we are not a contracted employee of any dental insurance company. We will take care of sending your claim to your insurance provider and we will do everything that we can to ensure you get all of the benefits to which you are entitled.
If you have a secondary insurance provider, you will be responsible for that payment at time of service.
Payment Plans: We allow a courtesy discount for total payment in advance of scheduled appointments. We also have several payment plans available through different accredited companies to finance your dental care; companies such as CareCredit and Prosper Healthcare Lending. Many of these plans have no down payment required, no interest, and no pre-payment penalties. Some plans offer longer terms with a low interest rate. Our patients have been very happy with the terms offered by these payment plans. These companies give you alternative options so that you can have the dental treatment you need and deserve.Payment Plan Options
