How does orthodontic insurance work?
Different insurance companies provide different benefits. Orthodontic insurance generally pays for a portion of an orthodontic treatment fee. Most orthodontic insurance has a lifetime maximum benefits. This benefit may vary from $500 to more than $2000 depending on the type of your insurance. Some insurance companies also offer a discounted fee but do not actually pay for the treatment.

Knowing your benefits by contacting your insurance company can help maximize your coverage. Please note that you are ultimately responsible for the treatment fee. And you are responsible for any balance that is not paid by your insurance company.
