Finance & Insurance
Insurance and Orthodontics
Dental Insurance is different from medical insurance. Many patients aren’t familiar with the specifics of their dental insurance benefits. Your dental and orthodontic benefits are based on the agreement your employer negotiated with your insurance carrier. Please review the insurance benefit booklet provided by your employer to better understand the benefits they make available as part of your insurance coverage.
Not all insurance plans cover orthodontic treatment, but many do. The patient payment portion covered for orthodontic treatment varies depending on the coverage provided by your employer as well as the specifics of your orthodontic treatment needs.
Please bring your insurance card to your first appointment or consultation so that we can assist you in determining whether or not your insurance plan will help to cover the costs of your treatment.
Please ask us about financing options, and let us know if you have questions about our financial policies prior to your treatment.
Some companies offer Health Savings Accounts or Flexible Spending Accounts for their employees. These accounts are also available to individuals for themselves and their dependents. The plans allow for pre-tax deposits to be made to the individual’s account. The money in the account can then be used for necessary medical or dental expenses. This means that in some cases, orthodontics can be paid for with your health savings account funds.
For your convenience, we accept payments made with Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express. We also offer financing through Care Credit.
