Insurance Billing

Garrison Woods Dental offers a couple of financial options when working with insurance companies.

The first method is having the patient pay for services provided in full at the time of their appointment. We complete insurance forms and submit them on the patient’s behalf and the patient is reimbursed directly from their insurance company. Many of our patients use a point’s type credit card with this option so they can redeem points.

Direct Billing

The second method is commonly referred to as “direct billing”. For patients who choose this method, we directly bill their insurance company and the patient pays the difference, or estimated difference, at the time of the appointment.

Due to the Canadian Privacy Act in effect as of January 2004, most insurance companies will not release plan details to anyone except the policy holder.

Although we try to help our patients with insurance to the best of our abilities, all insurance plans are different, and it is the patient’s responsibility to know what their insurance covers and when their insurance renews. If you have questions about your insurance, we highly recommend calling your insurance company and we can answer any subsequent questions that you may have.
