If you have dental insurance, we will file the claims for you, as a complimentary service. It is very
important that the correct insurance information is provided at the time of the patient’s appointment. If
this information changes, it is the patient's responsibility to update Lovejoy Dental Center at the earliest
convenience. While we do our best to verify dental benefits prior to your first appointment, this does not
guarantee coverage or payments to Lovejoy Dental Center. We do accept payments from the dental
insurance companies; however, we are not contracted with them. It is a contract between you, your
employer and the insurance company.
If requested, we will provide you with a verbal ESTIMATE of your out of pocket expense for any
treatment planned by the doctor. However, please understand that these are strictly estimates and are not a
guarantee that your insurance company will reimburse us/you according to these estimates.
Please note that any difference in payment from your insurance company and your account balance is
your responsibility. While the filing of insurance claims is a courtesy that we extend to all of our patients,
all charges are your responsibility from the date the services are rendered. If difficulty arises with
payment from the insurance company, we will ask that you contact your carrier to rectify the problem. All
expected insurance balances remaining unpaid after 90 days from the date of service becomes the
immediate responsibility of the patient and/or account holder.
Payment for co-pays and/or deductibles is due at the time services are provided.
Any balance older than 90 days will be subject to interest charges of 1.5% per month, from the date of
service, until the account is paid in full. If a payment has not been received on the account during the 90
days, the account risks being sent to a collection agency or an attorney, additional collection fees will be
applied to any unpaid balance. Any attorney or collections fees incurred due to delinquency in
payment or collection efforts will also be charged to you, including court costs and fees. Any
personal check returned unpaid or with non-sufficient funds (NSF) will incur a $15 NSF check fee and
may also subject you to court costs and attorney fees.
We request a 48 hour cancellation notice for scheduled appointments. A cancellation fee of $50 may be
charged if a 48 hour notice is not given.
