As a service to our patients, our practice accepts most dental insurance programs, including some managed care programs, non-managed care, indemnity (traditional) and PPO out-of-network.
INSURANCE PLAN ADDITIONS!! As of August 1, 2009, we accept Delta Dental PPO programs and WEA Trust programs.
The Financial Coordinators at CDA will prepare and file claims to your insurer as a courtesy. To assure prompt attention to insurance claims, it is essential that we have accurate and up-to-date information. However, we remind you that your specific policy is an agreement between you and your insurance company. Please keep in mind that you are responsible for your total obligation should your insurance benefits result in less coverage than anticipated.
The fees charged for services rendered to those who are insured are the usual and customary fees charged to all our patients for similar services. Your policy may base its allowances on a fixed fee schedule, which may or may not coincide with our usual fees. You should be aware that different insurance companies vary greatly in the types of coverage available. Also, some companies take care of claims promptly while others delay payment for several months.
Many insurance plans include patient co-payments and/or lab fees. Cudahy Dental Associates requires that all co-payments and lab fees be paid at the time of service.
Some insurance companies require that a pre-estimation of treatment be sent for pre-approval before beginning treatment. Our staff will gladly submit a pre-treatment estimate to your insurance company so that you will know what your benefits will be.
