INSURANCE & FINANCIAL OPTIONS
Allentown Pain & Sleep Center is committed to providing the highest quality of care with compassion, respect and expertise in a professional and timely manner. In order to assist you with the investment in your treatment, we have outlined our payment policy. We will give you an estimate of your fees and will update them as needed.
We are participating with Medicare and BCBS plans. We are the only in network DME(Sleep Apnea Dental Devices) provider for Geisinger in the Wyoming Valley. We encourage all of our patients to contact their medical insurance prior to treatment to confirm benefit coverage. We do not bill any dental insurance. Co-payments and deductible payments are designed by insurance companies to enhance patient responsibility and commitment to their own healthcare. Therefore, we require patients with insurance to cover their co-pays at the time of service. Co-insurance and deductibles are part of the estimate and due at the time of the splint fit. The fees may be paid at each visit with cash, check, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express and CareCredit.
If you have insurance benefits, as a courtesy, we will contact your medical insurance prior to the start of any treatment. When we call to verify your benefits, we ask your insurancecompany all information about your policy including: deductibles, co-insurance, co-pays, maximum out of pockets and any limitations. With the information from your insurance, we will calculate an estimated out of pocket for you. Please remember that this is not a guarantee that this is all you will owe. Your final financial responsibility can only be determined by your insurance company and may be different than the estimated out of pocket.
A complete patient registration form and/or copy of the insurance card(s) must be provided by the patient at the first appointment and updated at each additional appointment. Patients must notify our office of any changes with insurance information. It is your responsibility to know your insurance coverage, as you are ultimately responsible for the entire balance.
If you don’t have any medical insurance or if your medical insurance doesn’t cover treatment, we do require payment for these services at the time they are being rendered. The fees may be paid at each visit with cash, check, Visa, MasterCard, Discover or CareCredit. For more information about the discounted fees, please contact our billing office at (570) 208-5305.
