Okay so my husband has about 2000.00 dollars worth of work that is needed to be done. We have been waiting until his open enrollment at work before going to the dentist. Now that we have insurance, my husband wanted to start having his teeth taken care of.
The issue is that the dentist is stating that he will file the claim for us but expects us to pay in full the 2000.00. He said he will not wait for the insurance to send the payment. Even though our policy has a 2500.00 max limit which should take care of the dental service needed. If we had 2000.00 laying around we would not have waited to get the dental insurance. This make no sense to us. Is this normal practice with dentist just wanting their money up front?
