Our patients often ask us why we have chosen not to have a “preferred provider” relationship with private health insurance companies.
Who should determine what dental treatment you require, your Dentist or Your Private Health Insurer?
Clubb Dental is not contracted to a particular health insurance company, meaning there is usually a gap after claiming on your health fund.
Being a preferred provider does not mean that the health insurance company has selected a dentist capable of providing the best possible individual treatment to each individual patient. Being a “preferred provider” means that a dental practice has entered into a financial agreement with a health insurance company. Being a “preferred provider” involves taking up a contract with a particular health insurance company, and working to a business plan determined by the insurance company.
We provide optimum patient care, individually tailored to each patient’s individual needs. While it may not always be the case, the fee schedules determined by the health insurance companies may limit the time, care and services we are able to provide our patients, as well as affecting the quality of the materials which we use.
Clubb Dental provides unbiased and uncompromising service, individualised care and technical excellence so we choose not to be contracted to any of the health insurance companies.
We do have HICAPS facilities and welcome you to make instant claims to your health fund and only pay the difference at the time of your appointment.
