Dental Insurance Office Policy:
Call today and ask if we work with your insurance. At Green Apple, we help our patients maximize their benefits while obtaining quality services.
Important note: we encourage our patients to be familiar with their insurance benefits and recognize the following.
The treatment plans provided at Green Apple are based on estimates only, created using the information provided by insurance companies about their patient’s specific plan.
By law, insurance companies are required to pay each claim within 30 days of receipt. We file claims electronically, so insurance companies receive them within days of treatment.
If we work with your insurance, filing claims is a courtesy from Green Apple to our patients. Even though we are not responsible for how insurance companies process claims or reimburse their patients, we can assist in estimating patient portions (cost of treatment) by requesting pre-authorizations.
Unless a pre-authorization is sent ahead of time, we will not know for sure how much the insurance reimbursement will be until the insurance plan processes the claim. Out of pocket cost will be required.
NO DENTAL INSURANCE PLAN PAYS 100% OF EVERY PROCEDURE
Dental insurance is meant to help patients pay to receive dental care. Many patients think their insurance pays 90%-100% of all dental fees, but this is not true. Most plans only pay between 50%-80% of the average total fee. Depending on the plan, some pay more, and some pay less. The percentage paid is usually determined by money paid for coverage or the type of contract the employer has set up with the insurance company.
