Nelson Dentistry wants you to get the care you need, here are some ways we help make it affordable.
Our office will gladly record your dental insurance and file a claim on your behalf at each appointment, regardless of your chosen method of payment. If applicable, we will provide a secondary insurance claim form for you to file with your carrier upon receipt of your primary insurance explanation of benefits (EOB).
We are also happy to send a predetermination of benefits to your insurance company upon your request for any proposed treatment plans.
CareCredit is a healthcare credit card that individuals have the option to apply for and, if accepted, can use towards any of their healthcare needs. Through the application process, CareCredit will determine your credit limit. When using CareCredit, you will be able to select the amount of time you’d like to pay your balance off within (6, 12, or 18 months). As long as you make your payments and pay off your balance within the specified timeframe, you will not be charged interest.
For all patients of record, we offer a courtesy for payment in full at the time of service, as long as there is not an existing balance on the account. If you would like to take advantage of this option, a 10% courtesy is given when paying in full with cash or check, and a 7% courtesy is given when paying in full with a credit or debit card.
Please note: The courtesy cannot be extended for preventative services (e.g. teeth cleaning & periodic exams) for patients with insurance, as most insurance companies cover preventative services at 100%.
Our office has elected to utilize an in-house financing option, enabling patients to set up an automated payment plan directly with us when pursuing treatment that is $300 or more. This payment option will be extended towards all patients who have established good credit.
How it Works: Together, we will decide upon the length of your payment plan (2, 3, or 4 month options), as well as the amount to be charged for each payment. Your first payment will be due at the time of your service. We will then set up your plan using one of your credit or debit cards that will be automatically charged on either the 1st or 15th day of each month for the duration of our agreement. You will be emailed a receipt after each payment is made.
Please do not hesitate to inquire about our fees or payment options, we are more than happy to answer any questions you may have and help you decide upon a plan of action.
All appointments with fees greater than $400.00 will require a minimum 1/3 deposit at the time of service.
