Orthodontics is an excellent investment when it comes to caring for the overall dental, medical, and psychological well-being of children and adults. At Orthodontic Specialists, P.A., we believe that financial considerations should not be a barrier to securing any necessary treatments. We will thoroughly explain your treatment options so that we can accommodate your needs, and we promise to work with you to find a payment option that meets both your treatment objectives and your budget.
Orthodontic Specialists, P.A. accepts many insurance plans with the exception of some Managed Care Plans. If your insurance covers orthodontic treatment, you will receive the benefit of reduced personal cost. Many insurances have a lifetime orthodontic benefit that is distinct from regular dental insurance. Please advise our insurance coordinator of your insurance plan so coverage can be verified and estimated.
We will help you estimate the portion of your treatment that is covered by insurance; however, insurance companies vary greatly in deductible amounts as well as in coverage benefits. We strongly recommend that you become completely familiar with all aspects of your orthodontic insurance to help us with the insurance estimate. This is to our mutual benefit, as patients are ultimately responsible for the balance of services that are not covered by insurance.
If you have orthodontic insurance, we will submit claims on your behalf to your insurance carrier. It is important to remember that as an orthodontic office, we can only submit claims on your behalf. Your orthodontic insurance is a contract between you and your insurance company.
In an effort to keep orthodontic fees down while maintaining the highest level of professional care, we have established this financial policy:
If you have any questions about our financial options, we invite you to contact our office prior to your appointment with our orthodontist, Dr. Joseph Basile, so we can make sure that your treatment runs smoothly.
