Insurance

Dental Benefit Plans or Insurance

As a service to our patients, our practice accepts most dental benefit programs, including non-managed care and PPO out-of-network.  Dr. Piche and Dr. Duggan are not part of any managed care network.  Our staff will prepare all the necessary forms for your dental benefits; however, we remind you that your specific policy is an agreement between you and your insurance company. Please keep in mind that you are responsible for your total obligation should your insurance benefits result in less coverage than anticipated. Our staff will gladly submit a pre-treatment estimate to your insurance company so that you will know what your benefits will be.

The fees charged for services rendered to those who are insured are the usual and customary fees charged to all our patients for similar services. Your policy may base its allowances on a fixed fee schedule, which may or may not coincide with our usual fees. You should be aware that different insurance companies vary greatly in the types of coverage available. Also, some companies take care of claims promptly while others delay payment for several months.

Dr. Piché and Dr. Duggan will recommend treatment based on your needs, not what your insurance covers.  Insurance coverage is based on your contract, which is negotiated between you, or your workplace and the insurance company.  It is not based on your specific needs.  Ultimately, you will make decisions concerning the care you will receive.  We are always available to discuss our recommendations with you.  If you have any questions  concerning your insurance, please let our staff know.
