Dental Insurance & Finances
The Team at Chestermere Station Dentistry is pleased to offer direct billing to your insurance for most of our services, and we are here to help you navigate coverage and obtain the maximum use of your benefits. Please contact us at (587) 349-5858 for a consultation to discuss your insurance coverage.
Payment for services is expected on the day of service. We offer several payment options for your convenience:
- Credit Card: Visa, MasterCard & American Express
- Interac Direct Payment
We are happy to file your insurance claims for you. Please bring your insurance information when you come in for your appointment. We will work with you to ensure that you receive the maximum benefits to which you are entitled. Remember, insurance is intended to cover some, but not all of the cost of your treatment. The fees charged for services rendered to those who are insured are the usual and customary fees charged to all our patients for similar services. Your insurance policy may base its eligible fee on a fixed fee schedule, which may or may not coincide with our usual fees. You should be aware that different insurance carriers vary greatly in the types of coverages available.
Q) Do you offer direct billing?
A) Yes, we do offer direct billing for some services, also called assignment (as long as a valid Credit Card is left on file).
Q) What costs will my insurance company cover?
A) Benefits change from time to time, so it’s important to make sure you know what your plan covers. If you provide us with a breakdown of what your benefits are we would be more than happy to give you an ESTIMATE of what your costs will be.
Q) What factors do you consider when providing an estimate for treatment?
A) Our estimates are based on the most recent information we have on file. If you’re concerned about the costs you’ll be responsible for, simply ask about our “Pre-Treatment Estimate.”
Q) What is a “Pre-Treatment Estimate”?
A) A Pre-Treatment Estimate gives you the exact cost of the treatment. Upon request, we’ll file this paperwork with your insurance provider before any dental work is performed. While this may delay your treatment, you’ll know exactly what (if any) out-of-pocket costs you may be required to pay.
Q) What payment options are available to me?
A) We require payment in full at the time of treatment. We accept Cash, MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Interac (Debit).
Q) What is the best way to budget for my treatment?
A) We’re happy to provide a detailed treatment plan with the associated costs clearly outlined so that you can budget for each appointment accordingly. We can also prioritize treatments so that you can attend to the most urgent dental needs right away and then plan further treatments over time.
