Thank you for choosing James G. Loeser DDS, MD for the highest quality oral, maxillofacial and implant surgical care. To prevent misunderstanding concerning your responsibility regarding payment for services rendered, the following is understood:
Financial Policy: Both a social security number and a credit card on file is required. If you have benefits for the services that were provided, a claim will be submitted to your insurance company, Any remaining balance (resulting from deductible, co-insurance, etc.) is then charged to your credit card on file. After 60 days, unpaid balances will be turned over to a collection agency; the patient and/or patient guarantor is responsible for all collection costs.
PPO Dental/HMO: If you plan to use your insurance benefits, we will require a copy of your insurance card, a driver's license and your social security number. All co-payments are due prior to seeing the doctor. Failure to provide all necessary information may require you to pay in full on the date of the visit or subsequent to treatment. You are responsible for any services that are not a covered benefit under your insurance plan and/or are not considered medically necessary by the insurance company. Patient portions are due the day of surgery. There is a $25 processing fee for filing with your dental insurance.
