COSA representatives are not responsible for your carrier’s determinations. In-network insurance carriers will finalize your balance according to your policy with them. You can expect an estimated patient responsibility to be collected at the time of your visit. You may receive a final request for additional payment many weeks after surgery IF your insurance carrier determines you have underpaid at the time of your appointment. Your final balance will be provided by your carrier on the explanation of benefit (“eob”). Please note, if coordination of benefits takes place, more time will be needed to process your claim. Your final responsibility will be determined when the last carrier coordinates their payment with those that processed before them.

NJCOSA Billing personnel have on part in your insurance carrier’s determination, other than to relay information between all parties.

We are here to assist you.

Monthly payment plans are available through Care Credit and must be implemented prior to the actual procedure.

Fees and Co-Payments


When applicable, contracted insurance rates govern surgical procedure fees, therefore co-payments and estimated responsibilities are due at the time service is rendered unless other arrangements have been made in advance with our Billing Department (ext. 505).


Statements, Insurance, and Forms


Your paperless claim will be processed efficiently via our e-claim system. Your insurance carriers will coordinate benefits between medical and dental carriers when appropriate. Most insurance companies will respond within three to six weeks. Please call our office if your statement does not reflect your insurance payment within that time frame. Any remaining balance after your insurance has paid is your responsibility. Your prompt remittance is appreciated.
