Details on providing payment to the office of Dr. Jeff Mallette:
All payments are due the day the service is performed. We accept payments in the forms of cash, check, MasterCard, Visa or Discover. We also can help you to apply for financing.
A 5% professional courtesy will be extended to Senior Citizens for cash payment in full at the time of the appointment.
For patients with an overdue balance, a finance charge may be incurred at a monthly rate of 1.5%.
For patients with INSURANCE, your co-payment is due the day of treatment. The office manager will help you determine the insurance coverage available to you by reviewing your contract or by previous payment history in our computer systems.
Professional care is provided to you, not the insurance company. Thus, the insurance company is responsible to you, and you are responsible to us. We will help you in any way by filing claims on your behalf. We are happy to provide this service to you.
Dr. Jeff cares about your dental health, insurance companies care more about saving themselves money than your optimal treatment. Therefore, when the insurance company won’t approve payment for what Dr. Mallette recommends, we will help you by filing claims, photos and explanations for our treatment plan, but ultimately you need to decide what is best for your health and who to listen to. As always, we are willing to work out financial options for any outstanding balances.
We require one signed insurance form at the first visit of the year, after which we generate computer-printed standardized forms.
