Candler Family Dentistry works with most insurance companies. Insurance coverage is a contract between the patient and their carrier, not between the carrier and the dentist. All fee's not covered by your insurance carrier are due and payable by the patient. We will work with your insurance to estimate your portion payable, not all insurance quotes are guaranteed by the insurance company as each plan has it's own specific rules.
For insurance carrying patients: Estimated copays/deductibles are due at the time of service.
For self pay patients: Full balance is due at the time of service.
Our current specific insurance contracts include Ameritas (which sometimes includes Principal, SunLife financial, and Physicians Mutual) , Assurant (which sometimes includes other carries such as United Concordia and Aetna), Blue Cross Blue Shield the GRID+ network, Cigna PPO (which sometimes includes many other carriers such as GEHA and Ingles employees for example), Delta Dental PPO, and MetLife. All others must allow you to choose any dentist that is willing to work with them. We would not be able to work with any plan considered an HMO (unless you are outside of their contract network area and they allow you to go anywhere).
Medicare itself does not pay dental services. You must have a Medicare supplemental dental plan that allows you to choose any dentist in order to be able to use your dental benefits here. Some Medicare plans are closed contract networks. Please call your insurance carrier to find out more.
We are not contracted with or accepting Medicaid. However, all patient's are welcome here on a self pay basis.
