Grimes & Simek Dentistry‘s Dental Insurance Policy
Grimes & Simek Dentistry truly cares about our patients! We will do everything in our power to give you the care you need, and we hope to have as much of your charges as possible paid by your dental insurance. Some dental offices require that you pay everything in full and then ask you to file your own insurance claim. We, however, will use over 30 years of experience with insurance claims to help you with your dental insurance and treatment costs.
Grimes & Simek Dentistry files most insurance, if allowed by your insurance plan. Our office is sometimes allowed to take “assignment of benefits”. This is a big benefit for our patients, as we wait to be paid by your insurance contract. We estimate our patient’s part and you pay only that estimated portion at the time of service.
Having said that, please understand that we deal with over 100 insurance companies, each having varying plan options, and they’re always changing! We do our very best to estimate what your insurance may pay, striving for accuracy. However, sometimes a patient’s insurance refuses to pay a portion of, or even all of, a claim. We will send your insurance company your dental photos, x-rays, along with written narratives in an attempt to assist you in obtaining payment.
PLEASE REMEMBER, YOU ARE FULLY RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL CHARGES FROM THIS OFFICE, REGARDLESS OF YOUR INSURANCE COVERAGE.
