Dear Rhode Island Medicaid patients,

Bad news.  As of April 18th, we are no longer performing procedures covered by your insurance.

We know this is difficult for you given the low number of participating providers in this state.

The reason for this decision is your insurance company, the state government, has enforced a review process on a quarterly basis by a third-party attorney business by the name of Affiliated Monitors Inc.  Unfortunately, this appears to be a “you scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours” relationship between the two.  This does not surprise me given the low budget nature and personnel at these offices. The reviews cost close to $8000.

I find this decision to be unreasonable given their low incentive for providers.

Initially, we chose to take on your program for marketing purposes in order to give you access to our prices and quality care while utilizing the benefits of your insurance.

Moving forward, we will introduce a membership program that will give you up to 50% off all procedures. Please speak with me or a staff member for more information.

Thank you for your understanding.

Any questions, please contact us at 401-612-7347 or email us at directpaydentalcare@yahoo.com
