Patients of Palacios Chen Family Dentistry pay the fee for dental services provided either upon checking out from their appointment, or following one of the alternative options listed below. We accept credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, Discover) cash or check.
Patients that have dental insurance can utilize their benefits in our practice. Although we are an out of network provider, we are happy to take your insurance information, and work hard to maximize your benefits by submitting claims/records on your behalf. Patients pay the fee at the time of service, we submit the claim, and the insurance company sends the covered amount to the patient. If the insurance check does come to our office, we will forward the check on to our patient.
· Fees are owed on the day of service or can be billed, to be due in 30 days
· Fees can also be paid for utilizing these three payment options:
o Pay in full same day of service by card, cash or check.
o Pay full balance spread out over 2-6 monthly interest free payments. This requires a credit card on file. The card will be charged during the first week of each month.
o Pay interest free monthly payments over the course of 7-24 months utilizing third party company Care Credit
Why are we out of Network?
There are a few reasons that we as a practice remain out of network with dental insurance companies. First, we do not believe in allowing dental insurance companies into the operatory impacting the decision-making process surrounding your dental health. We believe dental treatment should depend solely on the goals and needs of the individual patient.
In addition, being out of network allows us to spend more quality time and attention with our patients, thus providing the highest level of dental health care and education possible.
