Please remember you are fully responsible for all fees charged by this office regardless of your insurance coverage.

If You Have Dental Insurance

As a service to you, and for your convenience, we will file your insurance claim forms with the information that you provide us at the time of your initial appointment.  We are preferred providers for Delta Dental insurance. 

We will provide you with an estimate of what your respective insurance carrier may pay.  What we tell you is an estimate only, not a guarantee of coverage.  Ultimately, you are responsible for the down payment/co-pay quoted to you IN FULL at the time of your appointment.  Much of your coverage depends on the specifics of your plan and how much of your annual benefit you have already used.  We cannot control what your insurance company will or will not pay.  We have found that some insurance companies do not cover all dental services.

Once a dental claim is submitted to your insurance, most insurance companies will respond within four to six weeks.  Upon receipt of payment from your insurance company, we will bill you for any outstanding balance or refund any overpayment directly to you.  Any remaining balance after your insurance has paid is your responsibility. Your prompt remittance is appreciated.

If You Do Not Have Dental Insurance

Payment will be expected IN FULL at the time of your appointment.

If you desire to make payment arrangements, our office works with a third party company called CareCredit.  CareCredit is a healthcare company that provides you with a line of credit for treatments and procedures.  Once you have applied you can use it repeatedly for anyone in your family. We offer a six-month interest free payment plan through CareCredit.  You can apply for a line of credit with CareCredit through their website at the link provided above. 

Please be advised that CareCredit’s approval process is based upon credit history of the applicant.  Joplin Endodontics cannot guarantee that your application for funding will be accepted.

If you have any problems or questions, please ask our staff.  They are well informed and up-to-date.  They can be reached by phone at (417) 782-3636.
