Payment

Medical and dental services provided by the CU School of Dental Medicine are payable in full at the time of service. Please be prepared to pay when you arrive. Outstanding balances must be paid before further treatment can be scheduled.

We accept the following:  

  • ​Cash, Most Major Credit Cards, Personal Checks, Money Orders, and Debit Cards 
  • Co-payments and amount due for non-covered services (including deductible) will be expected at time of service

Medical and Dental Insurance

Please bring your medical and dental insurance information with you to the consultation visit so we can expedite reimbursement. We will work hand in hand to maximize your insurance reimbursement for covered procedures. Services will be billed to either your medical or dental insurance based on the type of treatment you receive. If you do not have medical insurance and the treatment is considered medical, you will be required to pay out-of-pocket. If you do not have dental insurance and the treatment is considered dental, you will be required to pay out-of-pocket. ​

Private Insurance

Insurance is billed as a courtesy to the patient. We recommend requesting a pre-determination for treatment above $200. All disputes of insurance coverage are between the patient and their insurer. The School does not intervene in disputes between patients and their insurers. The dental and medical benefit plan is based upon a contract made between your employer and the insurance company. Should questions arise regarding your dental and/or medical benefits, it is best for you to contact your employer or insurance company directly. We will do our best to interpret your benefit plan, but we cannot guarantee actual reimbursement coverage. Please remember you are fully responsible for all fees charged by our office regardless of your insurance coverage. Any remaining balance after your insurance has paid its portion is your responsibility.

Health First Colorado (formerly Medicaid)/Medicare/Tricare

We are currently accepting Health First Colorado (formerly Medicaid), Medicare, and Tricare. If you have insurance and a co-payment is required, it will be collected when services are rendered. Please understand that we are required to collect at time of service. Applicable waivers will be provided for signatures at appointment. Medicaid patients need to present their Medicaid identification card at each visit in order to meet Colorado eligibility verification requirement. This must be done at the beginning​ of the appointment.

When You Receive Your Bill

Please understand that insurance is a contract between you and your insurance carrier. If you have questions or concerns about your coverage, benefits, eligibility, etc. please contact your insurance company. 

Verification of eligibility and/or benefit information is not a guarantee of payment. Benefits will be determined once a claim is received and will be based upon, among other things, the member’s eligibility, any claims received during the interim period and the terms of the member’s certificate of coverage applicable on the date services were rendered.  

You may receive a bill from CU Medicine, UCHealth (University of Colorado Hospital), and/or University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine.
