Our Financial Policy
The Dental Faculty Practice at The Ohio State University College of
Dentistry is committed to providing you with the best possible care, and
we’re pleased to discuss our professional fees with you at any time.
Your clear understanding of our Financial Policy is important to our
professional relationship. Please ask if you have any questions about
our fees or your financial responsibility.
By law, we must collect your carrier designated copay at the time of
service. Please be prepared to pay these amounts at each visit.
If your plan does not require a copay, and if we participate in that
insurance plan, we will accept the designated fee. You are responsible
for any deductible and balance your plan indicates on their explanation
Payment is expected at the time of service, unless other financial
arrangements have been made prior to your visit.
Approved or Accepted Amount
The “approved or accepted amount” is a term developed by the insurance
carrier industry to reflect "average charges" from specific dentists in
designated geographic localities. This amount that is noted on the
explanation of benefits does not necessarily reflect the charges for
your treatment. Therefore, these charges do not replace our fees, unless
the practitioner is a provider for your specific plan.
You are responsible for timely payment of your account. The Dental
Faculty Practice reserves the right to reschedule or deny future
elective procedures for patients who have a delinquent account.
WE ACCEPT CASH, CHECKS, MASTERCARD, VISA,
DISCOVER AND AMERICAN EXPRESS
