Insurance & Billing
Here at Southland Children’s Dentistry, we never want costs to stand in the way of quality treatment, which is why we are dedicated to providing our patients with care that is both effective and affordable. Your child’s treatment plan will include a breakdown of all applicable fees and an estimate of what insurance will cover as well as the expected out-of-pocket costs before treatment is administered. We strive to provide you with as much accurate information as possible, but encourage you to contact your insurance provider to learn the exact amount they will cover for each service. We offer a variety of payment options to meet your needs. Our office accepts payments by cash, checks, and Visa, MasterCard, and American Express credit cards. See our Financial Policy for more information.
Affordable Financing Options
Don’t let finances keep your child from obtaining a beautiful, healthy smile! We are pleased to offer CareCredit financing options with low monthly payments that make treatment more affordable. This flexible payment option allows you to pay for your child’s treatment over a period of time so you can focus on what matters most – keeping their smile healthy!
If you have any questions about financing or payment, ask us! We will thoroughly explain your choices and work hard to accommodate you.
Our office is committed to helping you maximize your insurance benefits. Because insurance policies vary, we can only estimate your coverage in good faith but cannot guarantee coverage due to the complexities of insurance contracts.
When you first visit our office, bring your current insurance card or a dental claim form with you. If you change insurance companies or join another employer’s plan, please be sure to let us know. If an insurance referral is necessary, please bring the completed form with you to your appointment.
Even though we are not contracted with your private insurance company, we will fully attempt to help you receive full insurance benefits for your child; however, please remember, you are personally responsible for their account. Private insurance companies will not discuss your specific benefits with our staff so we encourage you to contact us if your policy has not paid within a reasonable timeframe or contact your insurance company if you wish to have an accurate quote of covered benefits. We are happy to assist in any way.
