Welcome to our office. We are proud to be a team of health care professionals whose goal is to provide you with the highest quality and most cost effective care possible. We are also aware that unexpected health care costs can significantly impact your budget and we want to make our services as affordable as possible. In order to assist you with your health care investment, we provide the following payment options and ask that you read the following information.
The patient (or parent/legal guardian, if patient is a minor child) is responsible for payment in full at the time our services are rendered. Acceptable forms of payment for these services are CASH, PERSONAL CHECK, MASTERCARD, VISA, DISCOVER, AMERICAN EXPRESS OR CARE CREDIT. WE DO NOT CARRY ACCOUNTS IN OUR OFFICE.
At Andrew R. Rahn DDS, PC Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, we make every effort to provide you with the finest care and the most convenient financial options. To accomplish this, we work hand-in-hand with you to maximize your insurance reimbursement for covered procedures.We will gladly estimate your portion of treatment costs, and bill your insurance company for your treatment fees. The estimated amount not covered by your insurance company is due at the time the treatment is rendered. Our estimates are subject to final approval by your insurance company. Therefore, your exact portion of treatment costs cannot be determined until we have received the final payment from your insurance company. If you have a balance remaining after the insurance pays, you will be sent a final statement at that time.
Please understand that our professional services are provided to the patient, and not to the patient’s insurance company. THE PATIENT IS ULTIMATELY RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYMENT, AND THE INSURANCE COMPANY IS ONLY RESPONSIBLE TO THE PATIENT. We will do the initial billing to your insurance company, but it is the responsibility of the patient to see that the insurance company pays on their claim. We will try to make this process as simple for you as your insurance company allows.
Pre-authorization of insurance benefits may be in your best interest. Many patients are uncertain if recommended treatment is covered by their insurance plan, or at what percentage the insurance may pay for covered benefits. In some cases, insurance companies do require pre-authorization for any treatment. In these situations, we will be happy to send the required information to your insurance company for pre-authorization consideration. This process normally takes 4 to 6 weeks for insurance companies to process the paperwork and get it back to us. Emergency treatment is normally excluded from this pre-authorization process.
If you have any problems or questions, please ask our staff. They is well informed and up-to-date. They can be reached by phone at 559-435-7993.
Please call if you have any questions or concerns regarding your initial visit.
Please bring your insurance information with you to the consultation so that we can expedite reimbursement.
