The team at Lifepath Wellness Dental want to help you obtain the maximum benefits under your insurance plan.
Payment for services is expected on the day of service. We offer several payment options for your convenience:
We will be happy to file your dental insurance claims for you. Please bring your insurance information when you come in for your appointment. We will work with you to ensure that you receive the maximum benefits to which you are entitled. Remember, dental insurance is intended to cover some but not all of the cost of your dental care. 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 eligible fee on a fixed fee schedule, which may or may not coincide with our usual fees. Be aware that different insurance carriers vary greatly in the coverages available and group benefits are designed based on options your employer has chosen for you.
Q: Do you offer direct billing?
A: Yes, we do offer direct billing, also called assignment (as long as a valid Credit Card is left on file).
Q: What costs will my dental insurance cover?
A: Benefits coverage changes from time to time, so it's important to make sure you know what your plan covers. If you provide us with a breakdown of your benefits, we can provide you an estimate of what your costs will be.
Q: What factors do you consider when providing an estimate for treatment?
A: Our estimates are based on your latest diagnosis and assessment by our dental team. If you're concerned about exactly what costs you'll be responsible for, simply ask about our Pre-Treatment Estimate.
Q: What is a Pre-Treatment Estimate?
A: A Pre-Treatment Estimate provides you the exact cost of the treatment to be provided. Upon request, we will submit this paperwork to your insurance provider before any dental work is performed. While this may delay your treatment, you will know exactly what out-of-pocket costs you may be required to pay.
Q: What payment options are available to me?
A: We require payment in full at the time of treatment. We accept most insurance plans, as well as MasterCard, Visa, American Express, and Interac (Debit).
Q: What is the best way to budget for my treatment?
A: We are happy to provide a detailed treatment plan with the associated costs clearly outlined so that you can budget for each appointment accordingly. We can also prioritize treatments to allow you to attend to the most urgent dental needs and then plan further treatments over time.
