 Insurance

If your insurance happens to cover treatment, you’ll be able to receive the benefit of reduced personal costs. Insurance policies will vary so we’ll be happy to review your insurance in order to determine the appropriate course of action and save you the most money. We’ll even file your claims after treatment has started. To help us with your insurance filing, we ask that you please complete the insurance questions on our questionnaire.

Also, please remember that insurance is a benefit for you or your child. If your benefits happen to change during the course of the treatment, the financially responsible party will be accountable for all charges.
