Our Payment Options
Our dental services can be paid through a number of payment methods. Cash payments are preferred by a number of people while some prefer to pay with credit cards. In addition, many dental procedures are covered under dental insurance.
The following section provides a brief and quick overview of different payment methods available at My Dentist in Russellville, Arkansas.
Credit cards are found to be convenient and safer to carry around.
Several credit card companies offer many attractive benefits on transactions. Paying for dental services with credit cards not only fixes your dental problems, but can also help improve your credit. The two most common dental treatments that are paid for through credit cards are cosmetic treatments and surgeries such as extractions.
We accept the majority of credit cards to provide maximum convenience.
Approximately 42% of all dentistry payments are made in cash and direct payments. Many patients find it more convenient to pay in cash.
It is also common for people to pay for half of their treatment in cash and have the remaining portion covered through their insurance. However, this should be approved by your insurance provider before beginning your procedure.
Paying with checks is an outdated form of payment and not many service providers accept personal checks anymore. It is recommended to verify if a dental office accepts this form of payment before the appointment.
Many people assume that paying with a check is long process, but it is not. Should you need to use a personal check or pay via bank transfer, our office will be happy to provide you with all the necessary details. These may include the receiver’s name, account number, etc.
Our office also offers Care Credit. Care Credit is a service that covers the amount of your treatment and offers you flexible payment options.
To verify that we accept your insurance provider, please call our office at 479-280-1920 before your scheduled appointment.
Health insurance is an important tool for effectively managing your budget. Insurance companies cover many health expenses, keeping you from paying directly out of pocket. Dental insurance is also a type of medical coverage that provides coverage for certain dental expenses. It can be offered as a part of the overall medical indemnity or as a separate policy. To better assist patients, our office in Russellville, Arkansas also processes treatment compensation through dental insurance.
Since this payment method may require authorization from the insurance provider, it is recommended that you verify your coverage with your provider prior to beginning treatment.
It is important to make sure your insurance plan is currently active. Many polices enter into effect several months after your application approval. Patients are also advised to ensure that the treatment they will be receiving is covered by their insurance company.
Apart from settling details with the providers, it is also recommended that you confirm with our office that their insurance packages are accepted. This is because there could be some insurance agencies that are not registered with us.
In some cases, your insurance company may allow you to pay in cash and receive a reimbursement after the appointment.
