Common Questions Regarding Insurance Benefits
How does orthodontic insurance work?
There are many different agreements between insurance carriers and their subscribers. Each contract provides a different level of benefit. Orthodontic insurance generally differs from regular dental insurance in that each insured individual usually has a lifetime maximum benefit for orthodontic services. Payments are usually paid over the course of treatment as long as the coverage is in effect. Charges for lost or broken appliances are generally not covered by insurance.
What information does the office need to submit claims for me?
To assist us in handling your insurance claims, we ask that you provide the name, address, and telephone number of your insurance carrier along with the policy holder’s name, date of birth, social security number. Although the entire orthodontic fee is your financial responsibility, we gladly will submit your insurance as a courtesy to you.
