|The relief that comes with TMJ treatment can be a real lifesaver. TMJ issues can be maddening and persistent, which can lead to a long period of time with no rest from the annoyance and pain that comes with most TMJ issues.
We totally understand that a lot of the hesitation that people sometimes have when it comes to surgery or oral treatment has less to do with nerves and more to do with insurance issues. When your insurance doesn't cover expensive procedures it can have a real effect on your wallet.
The Good NewsPatients who have medical or dental insurance, more often than not find that their insurance will cover TMJ treatment. That usually includes surgical procedures. At Madison Oral Surgery & Dental Implants we work hard to collaborate with your insurance provider to make certain to minimize your out-of-pocket expense.
Oral surgery is often covered by many medical insurance plans and sometimes we can collaborate medical and dental insurance to each assume partial coverage of the treatment.
We will let you know before the scheduled date of the procedure what will be covered by insurance and what will be an out-of-pocket expense.
It's important to keep in mind that just because your insurance company authorizes a procedure, it doesn't guarantee payment.
There is always a minor possibility that insurance will authorize a procedure and not cover the amount that they authorized. It's not a typical scenario for insurance companies to authorize procedure and not cover them.
We accept a wide variety of payment options including cash, check, and most credit cards. Our staff work hard to cover not only TMJ relate procedures but other oral surgery treatments as well.
Other commonly covered procedures include, but are not limited to - wisdom tooth removal and jaw surgery. Contact us today or call at (608) 960-7650 with any questions or concerns you have about insurance coverage.
