The practice of dentistry involves treating the whole person. If the dentist determines that there may be a potentially medically compromised situation, medical consultation may be needed prior to commencement of dental treatment. I authorize my dentist to contact my physician, listed below.
Insurance & Coinsurance: If you have insurance coverage, we will make our best efforts to coordinate your care in a cost-effective manner within the limits of your insurance benefit and to minimize the expenses for which you are responsible for. Your policy determines the extent to which you will be responsible for all deductibles, copayments, co-insurance, and non-covered services. Forever Dental is not responsible for incorrect information given by your insurance company or failure of your employer to provide accurate information to your insurer about your employment status. The coverage available to you depends upon your employment status and the choices you make within the plans that are offered to you buy your employer. We rely on you to keep Forever Dental up to date with correct information about your coverage. This information includes, but is not limited to:
Insurance Copayments & Deductibles: You are financially responsible for all charges incurred for treatment unless we can verify insurance benefits and expect to receive payment from a valid insurance plan. Patients that have dual dental coverage will still be responsible for any non-covered services by either primary or secondary insurance. Each insurance may have its own deductible and must be met individually by the patient.
Fees, Scheduling, and Collection: Forever Dental may find it necessary to decline to treat any patient if the insurer or patient has not made payment. There is a charge of $25 for Not-Sufficient-Fund checks along with the amount for the check. We make every effort through text messages, email and voice message to confirm and remind you of your appointment. We reserve the right to charge $35 for cancellations of less than 48 hours, multiple reschedules and no shows. Excessive abuse of re-scheduled and/or canceling appointments may result in discharge from the practice. All costs incurred for the collection of past due accounts, including reasonable attorney’s fees will be passed onto you.
Communication and Statement Delivery: Forever Dental may communicate via text messages, email, voicemail, and mail regarding appointments and statements.
Minors: Minors must be accompanied by a parent or a guardian to be seen in the office, unless special arrangements have been made with the office.
