Financial & Insurance


At this time, Dr. Elson’s office participates with:

* Blue Cross Blue Shield of Rhode Island
* Federal Standard Blue Cross Blue Shield
* Metlife
* Pequot
* Guardian

If you have insurance with any other carrier, we will still be glad to file your claim for you. We find that many dental insurance plans do not require that you stay within a network. If your claim will be filed to may have out of network benefits.

After your consult visit, we will gladly request a pre-determination of benefits from your insurance company.

For some plans, we are able to obtain this information on-line and give you an estimate of benefits while you are in the office. If your plan does not participate with this feature, we can mail a request. Please allow four to six weeks for a response by mail.

We do our best to estimate the out-of-pocket expense for your procedure; however, the insurance has the right to withhold payment for any reason and any unpaid balance is the patient’s responsibility.

The office accepts cash, personal check, Visa and MasterCard as forms of payment. We do not participate with CareCredit or any type of payment plans at this time.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any specific questions regarding your insurance benefits.
