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 treatment plan will include a breakdown of all applicable fees, and we will inform you of all costs before treatment is administered. We offer a variety of payment options to meet your needs.
If you have any questions about financing or payment, ask us! We will thoroughly explain your choices and work hard to accommodate you. We now accept Care Credit for payment.
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 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.
We will fully attempt to help you receive full insurance benefits; however, you are personally responsible for your account, and we encourage you to contact us if your policy has not paid within a reasonable timeframe. If we are not contracted under your insurance, you will be given a copy of services and charges to file with your insurance claim form.

YOUR RIGHT TO A “GOOD FAITH ESTIMATE”
You have the right to receive a ‘Good Faith Estimate’ explaining how much your medical care may cost.
Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who do not have insurance, or who are not using
insurance, a cost estimate of the bill for medical items and services.
• You have the right to receive a ‘Good Faith Estimate’ for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items
or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.
• Your health care provider must give you a ‘Good Faith Estimate’ in writing for scheduled services within
designated timeframes. You can also ask your health care provider for a ‘Good Faith Estimate’ before you
schedule an item or service
• If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your ‘Good Faith Estimate’, you can dispute the bill.
• Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
