Insurance Options

Patient ResourcesOur office is committed to helping you maximize your dental benefits.

Because insurance policies vary, we can only estimate your coverage in good faith but cannot guarantee coverage due to the complexities of insurance contracts. Your estimated patient portion must be paid as per the contract agreement.

As a service to our patients, we will bill insurance companies for services. If you have any questions, our courteous staff is always available to answer them. If your insurance covers orthodontic treatment, you will receive the benefit of reduced personal costs. Many insurance policies have a lifetime orthodontic benefit that is distinct from regular dental insurance. Insurance policies vary, so we will review your insurance to determine the appropriate course of action.

Once treatment has started, we will file your claims. To help us with your insurance filing, please complete the insurance questions on our New Patient Registration Forms. Practice name accepts most insurance plans. Please have your insurance information accessible when scheduling your first appointment - that way we can verify your insurance benefits and minimize your out-of-pocket expense! If your plan requires a dentist referral, please obtain one before scheduling your complimentary consultation to avoid treatment delays.

Please bring your insurance card and information to your first dental appointment.

No Insurance? No Problem!

Are you uninsured?
Do you have insurance, but aren’t in network?
Dr. Lori Ross Tijerino is pleased to be able to offer you her own in-house dental discount plan, Plan For Health.

Plan For Health is an alternative to dental insurance. It is a discount dental plan that works similar to a Costco membership. You pay a fee up front*, and you get a discount on all the treatment performed while you’re a member. Unlike insurance, there are no annual limits, and it covers cosmetic as well as preventative and restorative. Plan for Health covers cleanings, normal x-rays, periodic exams, and gives you a 20% discount on all procedures performed in this office for one year.

Many insurance savvy patients will think that most insurance will cover preventative at 100% and 20% might not seem great when compared to the 50-80% that insurance plans generally cover restorative procedures. But when you consider that Plan for Health has no limit compared to a $1,000- $1,500 limit most insurance plans have and Plan for Health covers more preventative treatment at 100% than most insurance plans, and Plan for Health covers cosmetic procedures, Plan for Health starts to be a better value than many insurance plans.

Plan for Health gets you savings similar to what people with insurance get without the limitations. Plan for Health encourages more preventative treatment so that you can avoid expensive, time consuming, painful restorative treatment later on. Because Plan for Health doesn’t have annual limits, you won’t be pressured to risk your health by waiting for the next year to roll around so that you have money in your account again.

If you don’t have insurance, Plan for Health is the best way to get savings similar to those enjoyed by insured patients. If you have insurance and you’re out of network, and depending on how much annual coverage your insurance provides and how much the treatment you need costs, it can sometimes be worth joining the Plan for Health program even though you have insurance. Please contact us for more information any time. Remember our financing options (CareCredit and iCare) to get the dentistry you deserve, need, and want with affordable payments
