Finance and Insurance

Affordable Care

Orthodontics is one of the best investments you can make in yourself and your child’s future. We believe that finances should not be an obstacle to a happy, healthy smile; therefore, our practice offers a variety of payment options designed to make orthodontic treatment affordable. Our orthodontic fees are determined on an individual basis. Several factors impact the cost of treatment, including the severity of the problem, its complexity, and the length of time needed to address the problem. For your convenience, we offer the following payment options:

Office Payment Plan

Our office payment plan gives you the option of zero percent financing and flexible monthly payments. An initial down payment is due when treatment begins, and the balance may be paid monthly over the course of active treatment. For your convenience, we accept MasterCard and Visa.

Family Care Courtesy

Because malocclusions are frequently inherited, other family members may have similar orthodontic concerns. To make orthodontic care affordable, a family discount will be offered if you have more than one family member in full comprehensive treatment. This is our way of saying thank you for your continued support, loyalty and confidence in our practice.

Insurance

Today, more and more dental insurance plans are offering orthodontic benefits. We understand that insurance reimbursement can be a confusing and time-consuming task; therefore, our staff is happy to assist you in verifying your coverage, filing your claims, and working with you to maximize your insurance reimbursement for covered services. Please bring your insurance information with you to the initial visit so that we can expedite reimbursement. If you would like us to verify your benefits prior to your initial visit, please have your insurance information available prior to scheduling your appointment.

Orthodontic benefits are usually paid as a one-time, lifetime benefit, and benefits are payable based on a pre-determined co-pay established by your carrier. Since most dental plans pay only a portion of your orthodontic fee, we offer convenient payment plans designed to make orthodontic treatment affordable. Our Financial Coordinator will assist you in developing a payment plan suited specifically to your needs. For further information or to verify your benefit, feel free to call our Financial Coordinator. The staff at Bel Air Orthodontics is always available to speak with you, answer your questions and address your concerns.
