We have established a partnership with Care Credit, an outside financing company that offers 12 month interest free financing as well as extended payment plans.
Our office currently participates with the Gulf Coast Dental Network which includes Sarasota Memorial Hospital, The City of Sarasota, and Ringling College of Art & Design. We are also part of the CIGNA Dental PPO Plan. As a service to our patients, our office will submit the necessary forms to your insurance company. However, we remind you that your specific policy is an agreement between you and your insurance company.
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 our services rendered to those who are insured are the usual and customary fees that are charged to all of our patients regardless if they have insurance coverage or not. 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.
