Thank you for selecting us as your dental health care provider. My staff and I are committed to your treatment being a positive experience Please understand your financial obligations are considered part of your treatment. The following is a statement of our financial policy. Please read and sign before being seen by Dr. Winebrenner and his associates. 1. All patients are required to complete our Patient History and all Insurance forms before seeing the doctor. Payment options include: Cash, Checks, and Credit Cards Extended payment plan (with prior credit approval) through CARE CREDIT 2. Patients with dental insurance are required to pay their deductible and portion of our fees at the time treatment is
rendered. As a courtesy to you, we will accept assignment of insurance benefits. However, we do required total bills
plus any deductible to be paid at time of service, based on insurance co-payment. A refund check will be mailed to you
if an insurance carrier pays more than the estimated amount.
3. A few of our patients have the misconception that we know all the details about their insurance. Since the early 80’s
dental insurance guidelines have become more and more complicated to understand and control. Please understand
filing insurance is a courtesy we extend to our patients, we must emphasize that as dental providers, our relationship is
with our patients, not the insurance company. The insurance information we receive is limited to what is covered –
not what is not covered. Your insurance is a contract between your employer and the insurance company. We
sincerely encourage you to contact your insurance company to obtain a list of procedures and limitations not
covered. Especially since any dental procedure that is not covered or has not been paid in full by your insurance
carrier within 60 days, is your responsibility. This is important for you to know. This unpaid balance will be subject
to a finance charge of 1½% per month, plus a monthly billing fee for $5.00 if not pain within the next thirty (30) day
Usual and Customary Rates
Our practice is committed to providing the best treatment for our patients, and we charge what is usual and customary for our area. You are responsible for payment regardless of any insurance company’s arbitrary determination of usual and customary rates. Minor Patients
The adult accompanying a minor is responsible for full payment the day treatment is rendered. Missed Appointments
Your scheduled appointment time has been reserved at your request. If this time becomes inconvenient for you, please notify our office within 48 hours before that scheduled time or a fee will be charged. It is not our intention to charge you; however we do required this notification to offer this time to another patient. Please help us avoid charging a fee by keeping your scheduled appointment.
