Insurance Information:

In many cases medical or dental insurance pays a portion of the investment in surgical care. Insurance is generally designed to assist you with the expense, not eliminate it. Our office will assist you in determining your specific benefits and, if you wish, will file your insurance claim for you. We expect the portion of your bill not covered by your insurance to be paid on the day of services.

If you have any uncertainty about the extent of your coverage, we recommend preauthorization as a method of determining benefits. This can be done at your consultation appointment.

It is important for you to know that you are covered as fully by your insurance if surgery is performed at our office as you would be if surgery were performed at a hospital.

Please bring all insurance information with you, including both your medical and dental cards.
