You will pay for your services at your appointment. We will fill out the claim forms for you and your insurance provider will then send your reimbursement check directly to you. This process, called “direct assignment of benefits,” reduces the likelihood of benefits being denied and allows claims to be processed more efficiently. Most patients receive their reimbursement checks within two weeks of treatment.
We have experience with nearly every dental insurance company. We work with them on a daily basis to maximize the benefits of our patients. Here are just a few examples* of the companies we can file the benefits for on your behalf:
*NOTE: If your insurance company isn’t listed, it’s no problem. We can file practically any dental insurance company claim on your behalf!
Although our practice files all kinds of insurance, Dr. Harrell is not affiliated with any insurance company as a “preferred provider.” Since insurance companies dictate fees under this arrangement, “preferred providers” are often forced to cut corners and use cheaper materials and dental labs to make ends meet.
Our practice operates with the opposite perspective, aiming to offer the highest-quality treatment options to every patient, but keeping fees reasonable to provide you with incredible value for your money. We also believe that decisions about your dental health should be made by you and your dentist, not by your insurance company.
However, we are fully committed to assisting you in any way we can to help maximize your reimbursement. Most patients don’t realize that they can go to a dentist who is out of network and can still maximize their reimbursement.
