Many dental insurance plans will cover at least a portion of the orthodontic treatment that you choose. You should contact your insurance provider to find out exactly what and how much is covered. If you do not have dental insurance or your insurance covers only part of your orthodontic treatment (which is generally the case), payment options are available:
- OrthoFi: Our office offers this new financing option! OrthoFi is an individualized financial tool available through our orthodontic office in which you can design your own payment plan to fit within your personal budget.
- Payment Plans: Most orthodontic offices offer affordable and flexible monthly payment plans that allow you to pay for your braces over time.
- Payment in Full Discount: Many orthodontists offer a discount to patients who choose to pay for their orthodontic treatment in full prior to treatment.
Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) and Health Savings Accounts (HSA) can often be used to cover the cost of braces. Be sure to consult with your orthodontist to ensure that any requirements for using these accounts are fulfilled. Knowing the rules and any monetary limits of your account will help the orthodontic payment process run smoothly.
