September 8, 2015

Dear Friend,

Thank you for choosing our office to serve your dental needs. We appreciate your trust and would like to continue to provide your dental care. Regretfully, effective September 15, 2015 we will no longer be able to continue our participation with Anthem Econ and Anthem 100/200. We hope you will continue to allow us to care for you after this date. Although our status with these plans is changing, we will continue to provide you with the highest quality of care.

We have not made this status change decision lightly but rather after careful consideration with our other dentist colleagues in Atlantic Dental Care. Despite the reality that the cost of providing quality care to you has risen significantly, reimbursement rates from Anthem Econ and Anthem 100/200 have not kept pace with our cost of providing quality dental care.

Again, we hope you will allow us the privilege to provide your dental care after our participation status changes. We are happy to continue to complete your insurance claims and submit them to your insurance company for you. Depending on your plan benefits, you may or may not experience higher costs for routine preventative services such as exams and cleanings. You may have higher cost for other services. However, we will honor your current out-of-pocket costs through 12/31/15. We will gladly assist you in determining your benefits and answering any questions you might have. Please feel free to call and ask for Kelly if you have any questions. 757-427-7130.
