What is an insurance estimate?

The estimate is a portion paid by the insurance from the total cost owed for your treatment. Upon your request, we do a courtesy “pre-authorization” for you, where we send the procedure codes for the treatment to your insurance company in advance to see what they will cover. However, there are some insurance plans that won’t give you an exact amount that they will pay for the treatment, which is why the “pre-authorization” letter does not guarantee that the insurance company will pay what it says. We always work hard to make sure that you get the most out of the insurance benefits allotted to you, yet, you must always understand that these are still all estimates and not final amounts.
