|Financial & Insurance Info
We are committed to running a financially responsible practice that benefits our patients through high quality, high value results facilitated by our ongoing investment in state of the art equipment and extensive continuing education for the doctor and all our staff.
You can pay for your office visits and any treatments by cash, check, credit or debit card at the time of treatment. We are a provider with Delta Dental, CIGNA, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Kansas City, Metlife and Guardian. We will help you file any type of insurance and accept Care Credit. To discuss your payment options or insurance coverage, please call (816) 673-2230 or email us using our online form.
For your convenience, we are pleased to accept Care Credit.
Our insurance coordinators deal with many different insurance companies. Some companies offer many different dental and medical plans. These companies can change benefits, co-pays, and deductibles many times throughout the year. We do our best to provide you with accurate coverage estimates based on information available to us. At times, it is almost impossible to accurately estimate a patient’s insurance co-payment. Many insurance companies will not give out fees until after the treatment is completed. Dealing with these companies can be difficult and time consuming. As a courtesy, we ask that you keep us informed of any change to your insurance. It is important that all information about you and your insurance is current.
Although we will gladly file a claim on your behalf, you may wish to submit the claim yourself. In general, insurers process claims filed directly by patients faster than those filed by the service providers (dental offices).
Further, most dental insurance policies are limited and often only pay for a portion of the procedure(s) that may need to be done.
The majority of dental plans reimburse approximately 30-80 percent of treatment costs. With this in mind, we ask that 20 percent of the fee be paid at the time of treatment.
Private & Group Insurance
As a courtesy to our patients with medical and/or dental benefit plans, we will submit necessary claim forms, receipts, and other information to your insurance company.
Upon receipt of an insurance payment, any balance due will be billed to you. If you have deposited an excessive co-payment, it will be refunded to you.
