At Bridgewater Family Dental we make every effort to provide you with the finest care and the most convenient financial options. To accomplish this we work hand-in-hand with you to maximize your insurance reimbursement for covered procedures. If you have any problems or questions, please ask our staff. They are well informed and up-to-date. They can be reached by phone at (908) 722-6666.
We will gladly submit an insurance claim on your behalf even if we are not participating in your particular plan. Whenever possible, assignment of benefits directing the insurance company to send us the payment will be expected. Until we are certain that your insurance company will send us the check we will expect payment in full from you at each visit.
It is important for you to understand that dental insurance may not completely cover our office fees for services rendered. Some plans have limitations for categories of treatment and some plans expect you to pay a percentage of each fee. If you are unhappy with your insurance coverage please contact your employer with your concerns.
We will do our best to help you understand your dental benefits, and will work with your carrier to maximize benefits within your policy’s limitations but it is your responsibility to understand your insurance coverage and limitations . Disputes over benefits paid or not paid will be between you and your carrier; related balances on your account will be due upon the receipt of our statement.
NOTE: Many insurance contracts provide an alternate amalgam benefit for restorations (fillings) on posterior (back) teeth. If your contract contains this specification you will have a higher co-payment for tooth-colored restorations on posterior teeth. We no longer place silver amalgam restorations.
