As validated by my electronic signature on the bottom of this form, I understand and agree that: all patient balances are due immediately after treatment is rendered. Please ask us if you are interested in learning about third party financing, which may allow you to finance your treatment in low monthly payments.
Should a balance accrue on the account a statement will be sent and payment is to be made, in full, by the date on the statement. If payment is not paid within 30 days interest may be applied to the entire balance. A revised statement with the new account balance, payable immediately, will be sent.
A returned check fee will also be applied and must be payable from you for each check payment returned to us by your bank.
Dental insurance is a contract between the patient, their employer (if applicable) and the insurance provider. Submitting claims for payment to the insurance provider is a courtesy provided by the dentist, not an obligation. Ultimately, I am responsible for any treatment that is unpaid by the insurance provider.
If there is dental insurance on the account, I understand that Deerhaven Dentistry has established the patient balance based on the information I have provided. Final treatment payment is subject to the terms and conditions of my insurance provider on the date of service. As such, until payment is received from my insurance provider, no patient payment is final.
Predetermination estimates, and treatment plans are based upon information gained from the examination. As with any dental treatment, there may be unforeseen treatment adjustments and/or complications. This is a preliminary estimate only and lab charges (if applicable) have been estimated and included in total.
Estimates do not take into consideration any money that was billed toward my insurance financial maximum or treatment limits that may have been used at other dental facilities.
A submission to my insurance provider will be sent to predetermine an approximate final payment. However, it is an ONLY an ESTIMATE and is not a guarantee of payment from my insurance provider.
As with any dental treatment, there may be unforeseen treatment adjustments and/or complications. Deerhaven Dentistry will try to anticipate any changes in the treatment plan and advise me at that time. However, such events are unpredictable. Likewise, the timing or spacing of appointments may need to be modified as needed to accomplish the best result possible.
I have read, understand and agree to the above financial policy for payment of professional services. I understand that I am ultimately responsible for all fees for services rendered to me and/or my family.
