Are you accepting new patients?

October 1, 2011 — by John Meola

We are always surprised when asked if we are accepting new patients. Of course! We are always happy to meet potential new patients. Usually when a prospective patient calls, we ask if they have dental insurance in order to find out if they are in network or allowed to go out of network. At Dental Associates of New England, we are in network with Delta Dental Premier and Blue Cross/Blue Shield.

We do accept assignment of benefits from most of our patients’ dental insurance plans and usually we ask the patients to pay out of pocket only the portion of the bill not reimbursed by their insurance.

We not only ask the ‘dental insurance’ question to determine in network status, we want to ensure that patient treatment plans reflect the most accurate estimate of benefits. Even though most of the callers plans do allow them to go out of network, we like to make them aware if we are not participants in their plan, prior to their booking an appointment. 

Please do not hesitate to contact us with any and all insurance questions you may have!
