Financial Information

We attempt to deliver the finest care at the most reasonable cost to our patients.  Our office is set up to submit your claims electronically to most insurance providers. We will be happy to provide you with an estimate of cost, as well as a pre-authorization, so that you may determine coverage based on your insurance policy.

Insurance/Direct Billing

If you have received written pre-authorization from your insurance company prior to your surgery date, we request payment of the balance not covered by your insurance on the day of surgery. (NOTE: If we do not receive payment from the insurance company within 30 days after surgery, you will be billed directly. Overdue balances will be sent to collections after 90 days.)

If written pre-authorization has not arrived prior to the surgery date, we request a deposit or full payment on the day of surgery.

Please remember that insurance is considered a method of reimbursing the patient for fees paid to the doctor and is not a substitute for payment. Some companies pay fixed allowances for certain procedures and others pay a percentage of the charge. It is your responsibility to pay any deductible amount, co-insurance or any other balance not paid by your insurance company.

Payment

For your convenience, we accept Visa, MasterCard, debit, cash and money orders.  Regretfully, we are no longer able to accept personal/business cheques or American Express. Other arrangements can be made with our Manager/Administration team depending upon circumstances. If you have any dental and/or medical insurance we will gladly help complete these forms for you and send a pre-determination so you will know your coverage and reimbursement level.

If you have questions regarding your account, we encourage you to contact one of our business administrators  at Mission Oral Surgery Phone Number 403-244-3678.
