INSURANCE AND FINANCING
We understand that insurance can be confusing. Please know that we are here to help in any way we can, but we do not control what the insurace company wil cover or reimburse you. The insurance is
an agreement between you, your employer and the insurance company. We do not dictate how or
what the insurance company wil pay. We encourage you to become familiar with your policy exclusions and deductibles. We wil always help our patients maximize their benefits, including same
day electronic form filing with the insurance company. Patients are ultimately responsible for the full cost of treatment, whether or not we accept assignment of benefits.
Our expectations of you as the owner of the policy: 1. Payment of fees not covered by your insurance plan at the time the service is rendered
2. Researching your dental insurance plan to advise you of benefits available to you
3. Understanding that the insurance policy belongs to you and we have no leverage to obtain
4. Realize that dental insurance policies restrict payment for some services, use restricted fee
schedules (cal ed usual and customary rates) and exclude some procedures based on prior
conditions or length of time on the plan. Al restrictions are based on the premium paid for
insurance, not our fees or recommended treatment
5. Keeping our office informed of any changes in your insurance coverage
6. Taking responsibility for payment if the insurance company does not pay our office within 45
days - or for any unpaid balance - with a pre-arranged credit card authorization
I hereby authorize benefits to be paid directly to Dr. Tomack and Dr. Behrens of Manhattan Dental Studio. I understand that I am responsible for any unpaid balance.

VELSCOPE- ORAL CANCER SCREENING We know that oral cancer claims one life every hour in the US – more than the number of lives lost
to skin cancer, cervical cancer or Hodgkin’s disease, and it is of great concern to our doctors and
Oral Cancer is one of the most curable diseases when caught early. This practice has incorporated
the Velscope Oral Cancer Screening technology into the standard of care of the practice.
Velscope technology uses a wavelength of light which causes normal tissue to fluorescent green.
Diseased tissue lacks this fluorescence. This allows us to see the diseased area before it is visible to
the naked eye. It is a simple, painless and non‐invasive technology that improves the Doctor’s ability
to visualize, mark, evaluate and monitor suspicious areas at their earliest stages, before they can
progress to something far more serious, and potential y life‐threatening.
Risk factors and Screening Recommendations:
• The incidence of oral cancer in young adults is increasing
• 50% of al newly diagnosed oral cancers are in individuals who do not have the historic risk factors
• It is believed that the increase in oral cancers is due to HPV (human papil oma virus) as the
majority of these tumors have the virus present in the tissue.
• The good news is that these cancers can be discovered and treated early with good results.
• The Oral Cancer Foundation now recommends an annual screening for anyone old enough to
engage in sexual behaviors in order to catch the disease at its earliest possible stages.
The cost for this screening is $28.00; and we recommend that this be done once per year. We will be
happy to submit to your insurance company on your behalf.
I _________________________________ WOULD like this screening.
I _________________________________ DO NOT want this screening at this time.
