Most Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery is classified as a "Surgical or Medical" problem and is often covered by Medical health insurance. You do not need separate dental cover.
Wayne will provide you with a written estimate of costs for the proposed treatment. The easiest way to apply for prior approval is online or by phone, your insurance documentation will have all the details. Occasionally Wayne will need to correspond with your insurer which usually takes 1-3 days, if you have not heard from your insurer within the week of applying then contact them to see if there is a problem or if they are waiting on more information. Complete payment for services is requested at the time of surgery, unless you have a pre-approval letter from your insurer, please show the letter to the Front Office Staff and they will provide you with an invoice to send to your insurer.
If you have had treatment under General Anaesthetic at Boulcott Hosptial then you will receive 3 invoices, from your Anaesthetist, Boulcott Hospital and Wayne. Wait until all three arrive and send these to your insurer with a completed claim form. Also include any related costs to you, such as the initial consultation, x-rays and prescription medicine costs. Your insurer will pay the invoices directly.
Our staff are familiar with the insurance claim process, if you have any questions then contact the front office or talk with Wayne about this at your consulation or follow up. Each insurance company has a slightly different process.
