At Simister Orthodontics, we want to provide you with the best orthodontic care with the latest high-quality treatment that is easy on your budget. In an effort to keep orthodontic fees down while maintaining the highest level of professional care, we have established our financial policy as follows:
– If you pay in full at the onset of treatment, we offer a fee discount. If you have insurance, we will offer a discount for payment of your portion of the fee that will not be covered by insurance.
– To fit the needs of our patients, a financial arrangement can be made to extend your payments over a period of months following an appropriate down payment. There are no interest fees for these payments plans.
– In cases of serious delinquency, treatment will be discontinued, although we will make every effort to accommodate our patients with temporary difficulties.
For your convenience, we accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover Card, American Express and Care Credit.
If you have insurance, we will help you determine the coverage you have available. We ask that you assign your insurance benefit to us. We can arrange for the payment of the balance to be paid as listed above.
Professional care is provided to you, our patient, and not to an insurance company. Thus, the insurance company is responsible to the patient, and the patient is responsible to the doctor. We will assist you in filing your claim and handling insurance questions from our office on your behalf.
If your insurance covers orthodontic treatment, you will receive the benefit of reduced personal costs. Many insurance policies have a lifetime orthodontic benefit that is distinct from regular dental insurance. Remember that insurance policies vary, and we will review your insurance to determine the appropriate course of action. Once treatment has started, we will file your claims.
If you want more information about our financing or payments, do not hesitate to ask us. We will discuss with you several payment options and will work with you to determine the option that best suits your needs.
Everyone deserves a beautiful smile, and we want to help you get the smile you always wanted.
