Cost

The cost of treatment depends on the severity of our patient's orthodontic problems. We will discuss fees and payment options with you before treatment begins. We have several payment plants to suit different budgets. We also accept assignment from most insurance plans and file the necessary papers to the insurance company on your behalf. We strive to make orthodontic treatment affordable for you.


Fees

In an effort to keep orthodontic fees down while maintaining the highest level of professional care, we have established this financial policy:

  • If full payment is made at the onset of treatment, we offer a fee discount. If you have insurance, we will offer a discount for payment of your portion of the fee that will not be covered by insurance.
  • To fit your individual needs, financial arrangements can be made to extend your payments over a period of months.
  • For your convenience, we accept payment by Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover. You may also pay with our EZ Pay program.

Insurance

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 until the benefit maximum has been reached. Charges for lost or broken appliances may not be covered by insurance. Insurance quotes are not a guarantee of payment. We encourage you to read your benefits manual carefully.

If you have insurance, we will help you to determine the coverage you have available. We ask that you assign your insurance benefit to us. The balance will be arranged for you to pay (see above). Professional care is provided to you, our patient, and not to an insurance company. Thus, the insurance company is responsible to the patient and the patient is responsible to the doctor. We will help in every way we can in filing your claim and handling insurance questions from our office on your behalf. Insurance quotes are not a guarantee of payment. We encourage you to read your benefits manual carefully.
