Insurance

Medical insurance is an important tool for effectively managing your budget. Insurance companies cover many of your health expenses, saving you from paying out of your pocket. Dental insurance is also a type of medical coverage that provides coverage for certain dental expenses. It can be offered as a part of the overall medical indemnity or as a separate policy. To better assist patients, our office in Mt. Vernon, Illinois also processes treatment compensations through dental insurance.

Since this payment method has certain requirements, it is recommended that patients contact their dental insurance providers prior to beginning any treatment. It is also important to make sure your insurance plan is currently active. Many polices enter into effect after several months of your application approval. You are advised to confirm that the treatment you will be receiving is covered by your insurance company. In addition to clarifying coverage with your dental insurance provider, it is also recommended that you confirm with our office that we accept your insurance provider’s coverage. Although we are in network with several providers, some insurance agencies are not registered with us.
