Fees

At Southside Dental we direct bill and strive to charge the same fees that your insurance company will pay. If you have 100% coverage for a procedure, under most plans and for most procedures, there will be nothing to pay out of pocket.

Of course every insurance company will pay a different amount than other companies for the same procedure. This creates a problem:

If insurance company A will pay $80 for a procedure and company B will pay $78, we charge every patient $78.

By law, we are required to collect your co-pay (out-of-pocket portion of the fee that your insurance doesn’t cover) for each procedure billed to your insurance company even if the co-pay is only $2.

Unfortunately, most insurance companies won”t tell us what they will pay for each procedure and some companies will pay far less than others. To make matters worse, insurance companies generally change their fee guides every year. Also, there are some plans that will pay far less than other plans for the same procedure. Confused yet?

For this reason, we have tried to set our fees in the most “Insurance Friendly” way possible but can’t guarantee that if you have 100% insurance coverage that you will have no co-pay.
