Financial Policy

IMPORTANT: A WORD ABOUT OUR PAYMENT POLICY

To help control escalating healthcare costs we do not routinely send monthly billing statements to our patients. As a condition of your treatment by this office, you are asked to pay your patient portion at the time of service. We accept cash, checks, debit & credit cards. Upon approval, monthly payments are accepted through our financing options. I understand that the estimated fees quoted for dental care can only be extended for a period of twelve months from the date of the patient’s consultation.

MINOR CHILDREN/STEPCHILDREN

Oasis Dental Spa provides dental care to children of all ages. As a parent/guardian, you are accepting responsibility for your child’s conduct while in our office. Please do not leave your child unattended. If you are a parent or stepparent of a minor child, you understand that you are responsible for billing/collecting from the non-custodial or financially responsible parent of your minor child. Oasis Dental Spa cannot act as an agent on you or your child’s behalf to collect or enforce court ordered payments or responsibilities. Minors must be accompanied by an adult who can be accessible in case of unexpected changes in treatment are needed during the appointment. In the case that the parent/guardian is unable to accompany the minor, the attending adult must bring written consent for treatment and disclosure for the authorized person, and must be signed, by parent/guardian.

INSURANCE CLAIMS:

Patients who carry dental insurance understand that while we do accept assignment of benefits from your insurance company, all dental services provided are charged directly to you the patient and that you are personally responsible for payment of said services. As a courtesy, we will file claims on your behalf with your insurance company. However, we must emphasize that we provide this service as a courtesy. Oasis Dental Spa does accept responsibility for collecting payment on your claim. If you have questions regarding your claim, please contact our office or your insurance company. Oasis Dental Spa does not participate in any HMO plans, however, Oasis Dental Spa does participate in a select number of PPO, “Group”, or “Network” plans. It is your responsibility to access “in-network” providers. Failure to access “in-network” providers may result in reduced benefits. Oasis Dental Spa will not be liable for reduction in benefits, payment, or denial of claims. If you have questions regarding your insurance coverage, please contact your insurance company.

ACCOUNT CHARGES

Balances older than 30 days will be subject to a $10 monthly late charge unless previously written financial arrangements are made and are current. Appointments must be cancelled 24-hour (1 business day) prior to the appointment date to avoid a “Missed Appointment” charge of $25 on your account. Appointments longer than 1 hour will be subject to a $40 balance. Late cancellations could be accepted in “emergency” situations. Repeated and/or chronic cancellations may be assessed a cancellation fee of $25, $40 or $60. Please notify us immediately when you are unable to attend your scheduled appointment time.

COLLECTION ACCOUNTS

If charges incurred at Oasis Dental Spa have been turned over to a collection agency, you will be asked to pay cash for all services and supplies before you receive them. Oasis Dental Spa may decide to terminate our physician-patient relationship with you due to non-payment. If the professional relationship is terminated, you will receive written notification. Emergency services only, will be provided for thirty (30) days after termination.

BANKRUPTCY

If Oasis Dental Spa has been included in your bankruptcy, you will be asked to pay cash for all services and supplies before you receive them.
