Family Care Dental Clinic is an Assignment Office.
What does it mean and how does it work?
When treatment is completed, we will charge the co-payment directly to the patient, and will bill the insurer directly for the covered portion. To submit the claims for the patient, our office will ask you to sign the claim form providing your consent to submit a claim for the treatment provided. If the claim is submitted electronically, we will ask you to sign a form giving us authority to submit the claim to the insurance company on your behalf – we will mail a copy of this signed form to your insurance company.
By providing this service our office will wait to be paid by your insurance company and you will only be responsible to pay the rest of the cost of your treatment directly to the dentist.
