Michael Weiss D.D.S., P.C.For patients using United Concordia™, Cigna, Blue Shield™ of Pennsylvania, and Delta® Dental, we will be glad to help you obtain the appropriate benefit coverage from your insurance carrier and bill your carrier. However, you are responsible for any payment not covered by your insurance.

Sometimes there is a deductible and/or a co-payment required from you as stated by your agreement with your insurance company. This deductible and/or co-payment is to be paid at the time the dental care is performed. We will be happy to request a pre-estimate of benefits from your insurance carrier if you request us to do so. Routine treatment is generally performed without submitting a request for pre-estimated benefits.
