Orthodontic benefits work a little differently than your regular dental coverage. If your dental insurance includes benefits for orthodontic treatment, it will be in the form of a lifetime maximum payable at a certain percentage of submitted fees. In other words, it doesn’t reset deductibles and coverage annually as with regular dental insurance. Our staff will check on your level of orthodontic coverage at your first consultation appointment to make sure you understand your insurance benefits.
Our office participates with a number of insurance companies including Delta, Horizon BC/BS, MetLife & Cigna. Participation means that we have a provider relationship with these insurance companies that allow claim benefits to be paid directly to our office. No worries, you will still be able to utilize your orthodontic coverage with a carrier not listed. The only difference is that payments will go directly to you vs our office. We process all insurance on our patient’s behalf for a worry free experience.
