Dr. Lanier’s team works very hard to utilize and maximize your insurance benefits. However, the dental insurance plan is a contractual agreement between the patient, employer and the insurance carrier. Therefore, it is the patient’s responsibility to pay any deductible, co-pay, or other balance not covered by the insurance carrier when services are rendered.
When two dental carriers are involved, as a courtesy, Dr. Lanier’s office will file the second claim and have the insurance company reimburse the patient directly.
Dr. Lanier is also a participating providing of Delta Dental.
For all initial visits, Dr. Lanier asks for payment in full. If the patient has dental insurance, the claim will be filed that day to ensure prompt reimbursement. Before each visit, financial arrangements are made so everyone knows exactly what is expected.
Care Credit Financing:
Dr. Lanier also offers Care Credit (www.carecredit.com). She pays the interest to enable the patient to make small affordable payments over an extended time period. Her office uses this Health Care Financing Plan frequently.
