Are you here because you’re considering orthodontic care for yourself or a loved one? If so, you probably have questions about the cost, and dental insurance for orthodontic treatment.
When deciding to start orthodontic treatment, the fee arrangements may often influence timing. Therefore, this is a significant component of the decision-making process. It is important to bear in mind that the value of orthodontic treatment makes it a worthwhile investment. Here are some things to know about dental insurance for orthodontic care to help you make an informed decision about your oral health.
Inside and Outside Office Financing
Payment over time is a popular option. We understand that especially now more than ever, with Covid-19 affecting peoples ability to work at the same capacity as before, finances are tight for some households. That’s why we gladly offer in office financing in our office to help make orthodontic care more affordable for those impacted by this pandemic.
We offer an interest free payment plan, consisting of an initial payment and the balance spread out over the course of treatment. The smaller monthly payments without interest make this an attractive option. With this option, we offer convenient automatic payments and payment coupon books. This way, even if you don’t have dental insurance for orthodontic care, you can still get the treatment you need without worrying about a large up-front cost.
Our office can also provide private or out-of-office financing options. These plans may allow for no initial payment, deferred interest and extended monthly plans. We currently offer plans via CareCredit and can often get approval in minutes.
Dental Insurance for Orthodontic Care | The Benefits of Seeing a Participating Provider
When evaluating insurance, we make a distinction between participating and non-participating providers. Although both provide submission services for your claims and can accept insurance payments, a participating provider may be more advantageous.
The benefits of seeing a participating provider include:
• Lower treatment fees
• Lower out-of-pocket expenses
• Increased insurance benefits
Dental insurance for orthodontic care is usually provided as an added benefit to private dental insurance. Plans can vary considerably with different carriers.
