Insurance Information

At Fox Valley Endodontic Specialists we make every effort to provide you with the finest care and the most convenient financial options. To accomplish this we work hand-in-hand with you to maximize your insurance reimbursement for covered procedures. If you have any problems or questions, please ask our staff. They are well informed and up-to-date. They can be reached by phone at Elgin Office Phone Number 847-742-9150.

We file paperwork for all dental insurance carriers.  We are not a participating dentist in any of the dental networks so are considered a non-participating dental provider.  We will be happy to assist you in determining the differences in cost between a participating and non-participating dental specialist.  In our experience filing dental insurance for our patients, we have noticed that  the “out of pocket” cost differential to our patients who require specialist endodontic treatment is very similar to the “out of pocket treatment” costs of a “participating” practitioner.

Please call if you have any questions or concerns regarding your initial visit.

Please bring your insurance information with you to the consultation so that we can expedite reimbursement.

You will need to know insurance code and standardized tooth number information if you want to personally or directly contact your insurance company to discuss your benefits and coverage for endodontic procedures.
