Description of service

Oral Exam 24.00 Adult cleaning 52.00 xrays (2 films) 23.00 total 99.00 for a cleaning check up and xrays. My insurance covered all expenses. I don't have a deductible for preventive care.


Review of Service

The service recieved was prompt. I was very afraid I would have a slip get my gums. The person cleaning my teeth moved so swiftly... I was totally afraid I would be hurting before I left. However this was not the case. Job done and well. All for the fact I was shaking in my boots the whole time.


Tips

In this case I had insurance and I also had a fairly recent (EOB) from when my teenage daughter had a cleaning at school. So the claims person took a copy of it and charged an amount so I did not have to pay 7.00. Apparently they can do that. How ethical is it? I am not sure. But I do know they can charge a different amount when you pay cash. They can charge a different amount if you have a portion being paid in cash. Like a deductible. They can probably even charge a different amount if they give you a discount for having a new patient service record started. They can charge different if you were referred there. So I feel it must be just what they want to do in general.
