PaymentsPayment for visits to the office
Payment for visits to the office is due on the date of service. In the event it becomes necessary to send the patient a bill for payment not received on the date of service, a $5.00 billing fee will be added each month the balance is outstanding. If you are an insured patient, we will make every effort to verify your insurance coverage prior to your first visit. We will process your insurance forms with any needed information and mail them for you.
We currently participate with Delta Premier, CIGNA and Guardian Insurance Company. Co-pays are due on the date of service. Insurance payments For GHI and some Blue Cross Plans are mailed directly to the patient. For those who have these insurances, payment usually arrives in about 2 weeks. Our fee however is due from you on the date of service. All payments are due at the time of service unless prior arrangements are made with our financial secretary.
After the initial exam a treatment plan is presented and costs can be discussed at the second visit. Financial arrangements may be made with the help of the business manager for large treatment plans. This should be discussed after the treatment plan is made and before treatment has begun. Please make an appointment with the business manager if you need to discuss your treatment and financial arrangements.
We accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express, personal checks and cash. Health Care Creditline and CareCredit are several Dental Credit cards we can help you apply for. LendingClub financing can help you finance your treatment (click on the logo below). In the event a check is returned for non-sufficient funds, a charge will be placed on the patients account. Thereafter, the patient will need to pay for his/her service with cash or credit card for the next six months.
“No Insurance, No Problem ” Dental Health Club
Wheatfield Family Dentistry is pleased to announce the implementation of a new Dental Health Club for our non insured patients. Patients who sign up for the club savings plan will receive 1 regular cleaning (prophy) and 2 -4 cavity detecting x-rays per plan year. In addition patients who pay their bill at the time of service will receive an additional 10% off any dental work provided . There are exclusions, Invisalign and other orthodontic services and any already discounted monthly specials (summer sealants) are not included. For patients who use payment plans or 3rd party credit (care credit) the discount is 5% as long as the payment plan stays current. All payment plans need to be documented in writing and signed.
The cost for the plan is as follows:
- Initial start up fee $100.00 per household
- First adult $149.00
- Second adult $149.00 (children over the age of 16)
- each additional Child $99.00
There is no yearly limit on how much of a discount you can use. Expires December 31st each year. If you sign up for automatic renewal the start up fee is waived. You will receive a membership card in the mail within 10 days of signing up. We do hope this helps to make dentistry more affordable to our patients.
