Payment OptionsDavenport, IA
At Schommer Dental, our goal is to maximize your insurance benefits and make any remaining balance easily affordable. It is important for you to understand that your dental insurance is a contract between you and your insurance company, which is set up through your employer. If you have concerns on the type of coverage, it is best to talk with your employer. All estimated co-pays and deductibles are due at the time of service. If you have any questions regarding your insurance benefits, please don’t hesitate to call our office at (563) 272-2331 and we will assist you with your concerns.
Our practice accepts most dental insurance programs. Insurance companies can be difficult and challenging to understand. No insurance pays 100% of all procedures. Dental insurance is meant to be an aid in receiving dental care. Many patients think their insurance pays 90%-100% of all dental fees. This is not true! It covers a limited amount of services in any given year. This limit can be anywhere between $500-$2500 per calendar year and, unfortunately, has not increased within the last 40 years, therefore, dental plans traditionally are good only for basic dental services such as routine check-ups, cleanings, and possibly some emergency treatments, like root canals and/or crowns.
Please understand that we file dental insurance as a courtesy to our patients. We are not responsible for how your insurance company handles its claims or for what benefits they pay on a claim. We can only assist you in estimating your portion for the cost of treatment. We at no time guarantee what your insurance will or will not do with each claim.
Most importantly, please keep us informed of any insurance changes such as policyholder's name, insurance company, or a change of employment.
We offer multiple options for financing your dental treatment.
Option 1 | We accept major credit cards such as Visa, Mastercard, Discover and AMEX.
Option 2 | We also accept third party financing such as Care Credit.
As a service to our patients, we are pleased to accept the CareCredit card, the nation's leading patient payment program.
