PEDIATRIC DENTAL ASSOCIATES

ANDREW S HOBBS DDS

Financial Options

Fees vary with the difficulty or complexity of your child’s treatment and will be discussed during your consultation.  We are dedicated to making top-quality care as cost-effective as possible. To assist you with your healthcare investment for your child, we provide the following payment options:  Cash, Money Orders, Personal Checks, Visa/MasterCard/Discover, and CareCredit

Visa MasterCard Discover CareCredit

As a courtesy, we will bill your insurance company for covered charges. In order for us to bill your insurance, you will need to provide us with the necessary accurate and complete information.  Remember that your insurance policy is a contract between you and your insurance company, and you are responsible for all charges incurred.  We do not sign contracts with any networks or PPO’s because we believe in freedom of choice when selecting your provider. For that reason it is your responsibility to determine how your insurance will cover “out of network” providers. If this is your child’s first visit, a pre-treatment estimate may not always be available to determine your out-of-pocket expenses. We, therefore, require ½ down on any treatment rendered on your child’s first appointment.  We expect insurance payment within 45 days from the date of service. 

If your insurance has not paid and/or the account becomes 60 days old, you will be assessed a 5% billing and processing fee. Accounts 90 days old are assessed an additional 10% billing and processing fee and those over 90 days will be sent to collections. If there is no insurance coverage, you will be responsible for all charges incurred at the time of service. If you can pay for the entire appointment, in full, the day of the appointment, we do offer discounts of: 10% Cash (currency only), or 5% Credit/Debit Card.
