Patients can go out of network, and payment can come to you:
FD: You have great insurance that allows you to go to the dentist of your choice. We will be happy to work with the insurance company. You will be responsible for any fees not paid by your insurance. Let’s say your office visit is $100 and your insurance estimate is $80, then you would be responsible for the $20 difference at the time of your visit.
Important: Ensure you have a written financial policy that NPs sign off on that makes clear they are ultimately responsible for payment. It is vital NPs understand this. Just because an insurance company says it will cover treatment doesn't mean it will actually end up doing so.
