Here is the first post of I’m sure to be many about patients and insurance.

Just because you have an insurance card doesn’t mean that your treatment is covered 100%.

Twice today we have had patients come in to the office, went through the standard exam and treatment plan, and when they were presented with the fees, we get:

“Oh no this is wrong you need to recheck this. I have insurance I don’t owe anything.”

I love how they think having insurance (even the stupid discount plans) is a free pass to healthcare. Some of these plans don’t cover but 50% of one filling once a year!

Read your insurance plans people before signing up. No I’m not giving you a discount because you bought crappy insurance. It’s not my fault.
