We accept most major insurance plans. Patients should bring all insurance information to their first appointment. We are happy to complete your insurance forms and submit the appropriate claims information to ensure that our patients receive their maximum insurance benefits.
There are many different agreements between insurance carriers and their subscribers, and each contract provides a different benefit. However, orthodontic insurance generally differs from regular dental insurance in that each insured individual usually has a lifetime maximum benefit for orthodontic services. This benefit is paid as a percentage of the orthodontic fee until the benefit maximum has been reached. Charges for lost or broken appliances may not be covered by insurance.
For your convenience, we will gladly assist you by submitting all insurance claims pertaining to charges for care rendered in our office. If you have orthodontic insurance, we apply your orthodontic benefit to the total treatment fee and your remaining "out-of-pocket" payments are usually paid with a down payment at the start of treatment and consecutive no-interest monthly payments to cover the remaining balance.
Please be aware that our primary financial relationship is with our patients or their families and not with their respective insurance companies; therefore, should you lose your insurance benefits during treatment or if your insurance benefits are not paid as expected for any other reason, the remaining balance becomes your responsibility.
