Insurance & Finance Options | Hammel Dentistry

Please note that because we value our relationship with our patients, we believe you should have the right to seek care from the dental professional of your choice. Dr Hammel believes that each patient must receive treatment according to their individual dental needs and not according to contracted terms of their insurance plans. Hammel Dentistry will do everything possible to achieve maximum reimbursement to which you are entitled.

To discuss your payment options or insurance coverage, please call 520.647.2888. We are also more than happy to answer any questions you have regarding the different plans.

Types of Payment Accepted:

  • Cash
  • Check
  • Health Savings Account
  • CareCredit Financing
  • Delta Dental Insurance
  • We will gladly take care of all the paperwork for most dental insurance plans (ie, Metlife, Cigna, Aetna, Principal, etc.) as an "out of network" provider (see below information).
  • Credit card: VISA, Mastercard, and Discover

What does "out of network provider mean?

If you're enrolled in a dental insurance plan that allows you to choose your dental provider, then we would be considered an "out of network" provider. There may be a difference in the benefit reimbursement from an out of network provider, but generally the difference is nominal. We have found that our fees are typically lower than other providers.

How is dental insurance determined?

Dental insurance is an employee benefit that is offered through companies, unions and associations. However, your benefits vary from plan to plan depending on the type of benefit coverage selected by your employer.

Dental fees are arbitrarily developed by insurance companies and generally are not the fees charged by the dentist. Depending on the benefits of your insurance plan, you may receive less reimbursement than what the dental plan promises. Most plans allow you to choose your own dentist; others require you to receive care from a limited number of dentists or a specific dentist. One last thing, dental insurance should be thought of as a coupon, rather than like health insurance.

Why is Dr. Hammel an "out of network" provider?

In our office, your treatment and care will be determined by your dental needs and your general health, not by your dental plan. Dr Hammel strongly believes it is not in your best interest to compromise your treatment to fit an insurance program's benefits.
