Dr A. Sidelsky’s practice claims from certain medical aids directly on your behalf. However, we charge a small co-payment for balanced billing.
How our payment methods work
At the end of your appointment, we will claim what we can directly from your medical aid. We only claim from medical aids that give us a real-time response about the funds you have available.
The co-payment will be added to any outstanding amounts not paid by your medical aid, and you will be asked to settle that amount immediately by card or cash.
Why we charge a co-payment
As a state-of-the-art dental practice, we want to use the best materials, technology and book longer appointments to give our clients the appropriate care.
Unfortunately, what medical aids pay for dental work is not enough to fulfil these goals.
It would be much easier logistically to ask our clients to pay in full on their credit cards and claim back from their medical aids themselves. However, we understand that this can be difficult in the current economic climate, so we make it easier by asking you only to pay the co-payment.
We only accept the following medical aids:
- Discovery Medical Aid – Not Keycare plans
- Bankmed Medical Aid – Not Bankmed Basic
- Medscheme – Includes Nedgroup, Sasol, SABC
Members of all other medical aids are asked to pay in full and claim back from their medical aids.
We regret that we do not offer payment plans.
