Payment & Financial Information
What insurances do you take?
Dr. Russo is an in-network provider for MetLife PDP, Delta Dental PPO, Delta Dental Premier, Cigna PPO, and Assurant PPO. We are happy to accept assignment for these patients; however, you will be responsible for any balance unpaid by your insurance company after 30 days. If the balance is not paid within 60 days, a finance charge of 1.5% (minimum of $5.00) will be added to your account until paid. We are not providers for Florida Medicaid, Healthy Kids, or KidCare.
What if I have a different insurance?
Most other PPO's will reimburse for services rendered in our office and we are happy to submit insurance claims electronically. Please check with your insurance prior to your appointment to determine what their reimbursement policy is.
Why doesn't my insurance pay it all?
Your insurance is a contract between you and your insurance company. As such, we have no say in the selection of your insurance, the type of plan or your benefits. Your insurance company will pay the minimum amount that it deems, without the benefit of examining or treating your child. We base all of our treatment on what is best for your child, not your insurance company. No dental insurance covers 100% of dental care and most have exclusions. It is your responsibility to know what is covered by your particular dental plan.
How will I know what I need to pay at each visit?
Payment in full is expected at each appointment. Our office provides all patients with the anticipated payments required at each visit. If there are any questions before arriving for an appointment, please call the office and our staff will be happy to discuss this with you.
