How to Pay for Your Dental Care | Ames, IA
Dentistry At Somerset strives to make paying for your dental care as easy as possible. Financing should never be a barrier to your dental health. All of our payment options are outlined below.
Forms of Payment
We accept cash, check, e-check (direct from your checking account), VISA, Mastercard and Discover.
Dental Insurance Coverage
Our office works with all insurance companies, with the exception of Medicaid’s Dental Wellness Plan. Claims are filed electronically at the time of service. Patients pay the estimated patient portion at their visit. Dr. Niegsch and Dr. Garman are network dentists for Delta Dental. We work with all other insurance companies as an out-of-network provider. Specifically for Blue Dental Insurance patients, insurance payments are sent to the subscriber, so we ask that Blue Dental patients pay at the time of service. Please give us a call if you have any questions 515-446-3917.
“We ask that you realize that we don’t work for an insurance company. Rather, we work 100% for our patients. We feel that insurance can be a great benefit for many patients and want you to know we will do everything in our power to ensure you get every benefit allotted in your insurance contract. However, the treatment we recommend will always be based on your individual needs, not your insurance coverage.”
-Dr. Niegsch & Dr. Garman
