We Accept Most Major Insurance Plans
Our office accepts nearly all of the major insurance plans. Our staff is well-versed in the latest coverage trends and we are more than happy to discuss the specifics of your insurance plan prior to ant treatment you may undergo. Henager Black Dentistry is a Preferred Provider for Washington Dental Service.
"Usual and Customary" Fees
Occasionally, patients are confused about the role the insurance carrier plays in their treatment and payment of benefits. It is not the role of the insurance company to determine what the fee should be, or what the best treatment should be. The insurance company is obligated to pay for treatment in the manner that was advertised to you (or your employer) at the time the policy was sold.
Conflicts sometimes arise when the insurance company advertises that it pays 100% of charges, and then pays less than that by saying that the dentists fees are higher than "Usual and Customary". Our office regularly submits our fees for approval with the Washington Dental Service, whose membership includes approximately 90% of dentists in the state.
Our Administrative Staff is Here to Help
Our administrative team will be happy to answer any questions you may have regarding your own insurance policy, as well as our Practice's policies and procedures. We only ask that you give us a few small details regarding your insurance policy and we take it from there.
If we don't have an immediate answer, we will research the specifics of your individual policy and advise. You will leave our office well informed, with all of your financial questions answered.
