Insurance and Financial Arrangements
a. We work with most insurance companies but we are NOT on any PPO list. Our patient is the customer not the insurance company.
b. Financial arrangements are available. Through Care Credit you pay no interest for up to one year.
If you plan to have comprehensive treatment like dental implants that work can be staged and the payments made over time directly to our practice because it does take time to get dental implant work completed.
c. There is a 5% courtesy discount for cash or check on everything but dental implants because they are already discounted and the most affordable in town. If you doubt it shop around.
d. We do NOT see Medicaid patients due to the fact that taxpayers are forced to subsidize both the patient and the dentist and that violates Dr. Starkey's moral code. "One should not rob "Peter to pay Paul."
e. We do volunteer our time to
care of indigent patients that are not eligible for Medicaid or who are not on Medicaid. We work with what the indigent person can pay. If it is only 5 dollars. The point is the patient has to take some financial responsibility and will appreciate the work more if they have contributed even if only a token amount.
If you or some one you know is having financial problems as well as dental problems please call the office and talk to Dr. Starkey personally and we will have you in for a free consultation.
