We accept all dental insurances and are in-network with Delta Dental.
We would love to file dental insurance claims as a courtesy to our patients. Please realize that your insurance policy is a contract between you, your employer and your insurance company, and not our dental office. We have no control over the terms of your contract, the methods of reimbursement or the determination of benefits. All insurance companies are different and you are responsible for knowing your provisions.
If we receive all of your insurance information by the day of your appointment, we will be happy to file a claim on your behalf. You must be familiar with your insurance benefits as we will collect from you the estimated amount insurance is not expected to pay at the time service is rendered. If we are unable to confirm your child’s insurance is active we will collect in full for all services rendered that day.
Please fill out the change of insurance form if you would like us to file a claim on your upcoming visit.
Please be aware that the parent bringing the child to any or future dental appointments is legally responsible for payment of all charges. We cannot send statements to anyone for the estimated out-of-pocket for services being rendered at that appointment.
All estimated patient portions are due in full at the time of service. To help make payments convenient, we accept cash, check, CareCredit and all major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express). A returned check fee of $25 will be accessed for any returned check.
Our acceptance of insurance assignments does not absolve you of full responsibility for the treatment rendered. In the unlikelihood that your insurance does not pay for a procedure in full, you will then be responsible for the remaining balance. If payment is not received from the insurance company in 60 days, or if an account balance remains after an insurance payment has been applied, it will be your responsibility to make payment in full within 10 days of the billing date.
We recognize that account balances may be incurred. Just For Kids Pediatric Dentistry, P.A. requires that all outstanding balances be paid in full within thirty (30) days unless other arrangements have been made. Also note that if we have not received payment, or you have not contacted us within thirty (30) days, further action may be taken, in which a 35% collections agency fee may incur.
For those patients covered by MaineCare, patients must be eligible for benefits on the date of service, otherwise the account is considered a cash account and payment is due at the time of service. If MaineCare does not make a payment for services rendered, you will be responsible for paying the balance on the account in full within 10 days of the billing date. Payment for all services not covered by MaineCare will be due at the time of service.
