Payment for Services

Payment is expected at the time of treatment. The fee for more costly procedures may be divided into two payments; that is, half the amount to be paid when the procedure is started and the remaining half to be paid prior to final completion of the procedure. Examples of procedures eligible for divided payments include complete and partial dentures and crowns. We accept personal checks made payable to SIUE. For your convenience, you may also pay using MasterCard, Visa, or Discover.

The School does not provide payment plans except for implant and orthodontic services.

If you have dental insurance, we will submit the forms for you. If your insurance company will pay us directly and you have provided us with a copy of your policy, you will be asked to pay only the portion of the fee not covered by insurance when the procedure is started. If your insurance company will not pay us directly or you do not provide the necessary insurance information, you are expected to pay when treatment is performed. In this case, reimbursement of covered services will then be made to you by your insurance company. You are responsible for fees for any services not covered by your insurance company. It is important that you update your insurance information with the Business Office when changes occur.

The School of Dental Medicine also accepts Illinois Medicaid (Public Aid) as payment for covered services. You are responsible for fees for any services not covered by Medicaid.
