For your convenience, we accept cash, personal checks, money orders, and most major credit cards (Master Card, Visa and Discover). If you pay with cash or check, please inquire about our courtesy offered to patients when you pay in full with one of those two payment methods.
As a service to our patients, our practice accepts most dental insurance programs, including non-managed care, indemnity (traditional) and PPO out-of-network. We are not part of any managed care network. Our front desk staff will prepare all the necessary forms for your dental benefits. However, we remind you that your specific policy is an agreement between you and your insurance company. Please keep in mind that you are responsible for your total obligation should your insurance benefits result in less coverage than anticipated. Our staff will gladly submit a pre-treatment estimate to your insurance company so that you will know what your benefits will be.
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 policy may base its allowances on a fixed fee schedule, which may or may not coincide with our usual fees. You should be aware that different insurance companies vary greatly in the types of coverage available. Also, some companies take care of claims promptly while others delay payment for several months.
Payment is expected at the time services are performed or within 30 days of the completed services. Feel free to contact our office if your treatment plan requires more comprehensive dental work and you want to discuss financial arrangements. If your treatment plan requires more comprehensive dental work, Dr. Haussermann will often work with you to arrange agreed upon monthly payments with a low interest rate. If monthly payments cannot be agreed upon by both Dr. Haussermann and patient, then CareCredit may be an option for you. With three simple steps, including an instant approval process, it's easy to apply for Care Credit. For more information or to apply online, visit carecredit.com.
