I just went to a new dentist two weeks ago. I have dental insurance and the whole visit should have been 100% covered. I went to leave and the receptionist said that I owed them $112.00. I said, "but I have insurance, don't you bill them for this"? She said "No, we take payments up front and the insurance company will send you the reimbursement check directly". I had no choice, but to pay them at this point. I have never had this happen to me before. The office always bills the insurance company. It makes me mad that I am out my $112.00 until insurance decides to send my check. Has anyone else ever had this happen to them?
