Your insurance reimbursements
Your insurance plan is negotiated between the insurance company and your employer or yourself. A claim is sent to your insurance so that you can obtain reimbursement under your plan. If your insurer and your dentist use the Dentaide service for payment, your dentist must then collect the fees not covered by your insurance plan to act in accordance with his code of ethics. At the Aldente Dental Health Center we use the Dentaide service.
Some contracts provide for reimbursements based on the ACDQ Fee Guide, but not necessarily that of the current year. You are responsible for fees not paid by your insurance.
Out of respect for you, for his code of ethics and for his profession, your dentist charges the same fees to all his clients, insured or not.
