Our Financial Policy
Thank you for choosing us as your health care provider. We appreciate your trust in us and we appreciate the opportunity to serve you. As you know, our office and health care providers continue to struggle trying to get insurance companies to pay us in a timely manner. In order for us to provide the best service possible, we find ourselves having to make some hard insurance decisions. As a result, we implemented a new Financial Policy, which we require that you read, and sign prior to any treatment.
INSURANCE COVERAGE
Our office is happy to cooperate with patients who are covered by dental insurance. We ask that you familiarize yourself with your policy and be aware of any limitations that might exist. Having dental insurance means that you have an agreement with your insurance company regarding payment for dental procedures. There are varying dental levels that are available with a given insurance company. How well your plan pays will be based on what level plan of insurance you have purchased. We will file your primary insurance claim for you to help you obtain the reimbursement with which you are entitled. If your insurance company does not cover all costs, it will become your responsibility to make final payment.
PAYMENTS
Payment is due at time of service less your estimated insurance benefit. You may use cash, check, credit card or debit card to pay. Payment arrangements may be requested in cases of financial hardship through Care Credit. Except when financial arrangements have been made before hand, accounts that are 60 days past due will be billed 1.5% interest on the total unpaid balance. Accounts that are 90 days past due will be referred to a third-party collection agency and all associated fees will be passed on to patient.
INSURANCE PAYMENTS
Your insurance is a contract between you and your insurance company. We are not a party in this contract. Be assured, our office works diligently to obtain payment from your insurance company. However, if we file your insurance, and the claim has not been paid for any reason within 60 days, we require that you pay the balance using one of the approved payment methods without exception. In the event that your insurance pays us after that time, you will be reimbursed.
CONSENT FOR PROCEDURE
I certify that all of the medical and dental information I have provided is true and accurate to my knowledge and I have not eliminated any pertinent information. I consent to the performing of any dental examinations and treatment procedures agreed to be necessary or advisable, including anesthesia, nitrous oxide, or oral sedation, as indicated. A separate consent will be obtained for any surgical procedures. I understand that I will be informed of any treatment changes as they occur. I also understand that I am responsible for all fees associated with all procedures and all costs incurred in the collection of those fees, even if I am covered under a dental insurance policy.
EMERGENCY FIRST-TIME VISITS
Emergency first-time visits, we require payment in full of either cash or credit card prior to being seen.
MISSED / LATE-CANCELLED APPOINTMENTS
Our office requires a 24-hour notice during business hours for any rescheduling or cancellation of appointments. An appointment which is cancelled or failed without 24-business-hour notice will allow our to charge $75.00 broken appointment fee. Please note, cancellations are not accepted by email, text, or voicemail.

I have read and accept the cancellation and missed appointment policies.

RETURNED CHECKS
Our bank charges us whenever a patient presents a check that does not have funds available. Therefore, we must charge you a $35.00 handling fee. Payment plus the handling fee will be due immediately, and we will request that future visits be paid with cash, credit or debit card. If in the event that you are sent to collections, for an outstanding bill, a collection fee will be assesed and levied. We welcome the opportunity to discuss any aspect of our financial policy. Please ask to speak to our office manager or assistant manager if you have any questions, comments, or concerns. We sincerely regret having to create such a policy and hope you understand our reasoning. We thank you for your support, and look forward to serving you in the future.
PATIENT AUTHORIZATION
I have read, understand, and agree to abide by the terms stipulated above. I request that payment of benefits be made to Matthew Horne, DDS. I hereby authorize the release of any information necessary to determine liability for payment and obtain reimbursement on any claim. This authorization shall remain valid until revoked by me in writing.
