The cost of your orthodontic treatment will vary, depending on your individual needs and treatment plan. Our staff will discuss the cost of your treatment and each available payment plan option with you, so you can make the best choice for yourself and your smile. We will work with you to create a payment plan that fits your budget, and you will know what to expect before beginning treatment.
Will My Flexible Spending Account Cover My Braces?
Many employers offer Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs) which allow you to set aside a portion of your paycheck in order to pay for qualified medical expenses. The money you decide to set aside is deducted from your paycheck and transferred directly into your FSA. After incurring eligible medical costs, you can submit your receipt for reimbursement from your FSA.
Orthodontic treatments usually qualify for FSA reimbursement. If your employer offers FSA and you know you’d like to invest in a nicer smile and straighter teeth, plan ahead and consult your benefits department. In the long run, you’ll save money while getting all the benefits Skyline Orthodontics has to offer.
How does orthodontic insurance work?
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 (diagnostic records, initial fee, monthly payments, etc.) until the benefit maximum has been reached. Charges for lost or broken appliances may not be covered by insurance.
How does this office assist you with insurance?
For your convenience, we will gladly assist you in submitting both predetermination and insurance claims that pertain to charges for care rendered in our office. However, please be aware that our primary financial relationship is with our patients or their families, and not with their respective insurance companies.
Our professional services rendered are charged to the patient, the family, and/or the insurance company. All fees incurred by the insurance company that are unpaid due to any changes, cancellation, or termination of the policy become the responsibility of the patient or the family.
Please contact our office to notify us of any changes to your insurance policy and to provide the appropriate updated information.
