Dental Insurance Wayland

Maximizing Your Orthodontic Benefits

A dental insurance plan can often make paying for orthodontic treatment easier, but some patients find that they’re not sure what is and isn’t covered under their plans. We have worked with a number of insurance companies over the years, and we can help you figure out the best steps to take to maximize your savings. Check out our insurance guide below, and remember that you can always call us if you have any questions.

Understanding How Dental Insurance Works

There are a few things to keep in mind when it comes to using dental insurance to cover the cost of orthodontic treatment, and we’ll be happy to discuss them with you. One particularly important detail is that switching plans before your treatment is complete may result in you not receiving the same level of coverage that you would have otherwise. As such, it is recommended that you stay with the same dental insurance plan for the duration of your treatment.

What Your Dental Insurance Plan Covers

Every insurance company is different, so the specifics of your coverage will depend on what plan you have. In many cases, you can expect orthodontic care to be at least partially covered – especially if you need it to protect your oral health. That being said, if your plan comes with a waiting period on orthodontic care, you should wait until said period ends to start your treatment; that way, you can get the most out of your coverage.

What’s the Difference Between In-Network and Out-of-Network?

When you choose an orthodontic office that’s in-network with your dental insurance plan, you’ll generally save more money on your treatment. That being said, your insurance can still help reduce the overall cost of your care even if you’re visiting an out-of-network provider. If you would like to know whether we’re in-network with your plan, please contact us. Rest assured that we’ll do everything we can to maximize your savings regardless of what dental insurance carrier you use.
