Medical insurance is definitely an important tool for effectively managing your budget. Insurance companies cover many of your health expenses, keeping you from having to pay out of your pocket. Dental insurance is also a type of medical coverage that provides coverage for certain dental expenses. It can be offered as a part of the overall medical indemnity or as a separate policy. To better assist patients, our office in Machesney Park, Illinois also processes treatment compensations through dental insurance.

Since this method of payment has a few additional details that need to be dealt with before the payment is transferred, it is suggested that you check with your insurance providers before beginning treatment.

It is important to make sure your insurance plan is currently active. Many policies go into effect several months after the approval of your application. Patients are also advised to confirm that the treatment they will be receiving is covered by their insurance company.

In addition to verifying specific details with the providers, it is also recommended for you to confirm with our office that your insurance provider is accepted by Machesney Park Family Dental. There are some insurance agencies that are not registered with us.

In some cases, your insurance may allow you to pay in cash, then offer a reimbursement after the appointment.

Many individuals get confused with the different steps of insurance payments. In order to resolve this confusion you can contact us at Machesney Park Family Dental in Machesney Park, Illinois to clarify your doubts.
