Does insurance cover braces

We all know when it comes to insurances, it can be complicated and confusing to figure out if your dental insurance will cover any of your dental treatment. For orthodontic treatment coverage It is important to know your benefits and how much of your treatment will be covered. Depending on the type of your dental insurance and whether it is an DHMO or PPO plan, your dental insurance can sometimes cover up to $2000 or $3000 of your orthodontic treatment. Some discount plans give you the chance of getting your braces or clear aligners journey started by covering anywhere around 10% to 30% of the total cost of your treatment. In most cases, the orthodontic benefits are paid over the course of the orthodontic treatment which is about 24 months.

When you are looking for dental insurance for yourself or your family and you are interested in getting orthodontic treatment, you can simply obtain information regarding the amount of orthodontic coverage and compare it between different insurance providers. The factors that you might want to take into considerations are the lifetime maximum coverage for orthodontics, the amount or percentage of orthodontic treatment covered by the policy, and whether there is an age limit as some policies are not applicable for adult orthodontics. For those who are interested in clear aligners, some policies have different coverage benefits between clear aligners and braces, so that is another factor to look at before deciding on your preferred insurance policy.

At Elara Orthodontics, we are in network with the vast majority of dental insurance providers, which means that we are contracted with your insurance company to provide dental services at certain agreed upon rates. The advantages of choosing providers that are in-network with your insurance policy are:

  • Less out-of-pocket fees due to pre-approved treatment rates.
  • You are able to maximize your potential coverage and benefits during your treatment.
  • Overall total prices are usually cheaper than out-of-network providers.

If you are currently enrolled, you can provide us with your insurance information prior to your initial braces consultation.
