Financing Options for dental patients in Slidell
A survey conducted by a major medical insurance provider revealed some dramatic conclusions. Possibly the biggest surprise was the number one reason patients gave for avoiding dental appointments. Most people assume it’s dental phobia or anxiety, but the top reason patients list for avoiding the dentist isn’t fear – it’s financing. When asked why they failed to maintain their regular dental checkups, most people said they were worried about covering the out of pocket costs of treatment. If you’re concerned about the price of your dental care, the Fremaux Dental Care team would like to have the opportunity to help. We are happy to answer your questions about dental insurance, financing, and more. We work with patients offering accurate out of pocket price estimates to ensure there are no financial surprises associated with your dental services. Our goal is to keep you smiling. Call our Slidell dental team to find out more or schedule a dental consultation today. We look forward to seeing you soon.
We Take Your Dental Insurance
At Fremaux Dental Care, we are happy to process and file dental insurance claims for the majority of PPO plans. We are also in-network with a number of popular dental plans. This means our patients will receive the maximum coverage from their dental insurance benefits. As an in-network provider, we have agreements with dental insurers to charge their pre-set fees for covered dental services. This means you will only need to pay for the out of pocket percentage of your treatment and no more. Out of network providers can charge fees higher than those your insurance plan deems fair, and while most dental benefits will still cover a percentage of your treatment, you’ll need to cover the difference in charges out of pocket. We are in-network with numerous popular dental insurance plans including:
- BlueCross BlueShield
- Delta Dental
- United Concordia
3rd Party Financing
If you need help with the out of pocket portion of your dental care, we work with both CareCredit and iCare to provide patients with low and no interest financing. Both CareCredit and iCare are third party financiers that specialize in medical and dental financing. If you have questions about third party financing or need our assistance with the application process, please don’t hesitate to ask. We’ll be happy to help.
