Once you receive your complimentary consultation, discuss your goals, and Dr. Hashemi establishes your treatment plan, we can review the cost. A dedicated member of our team will sit down with you and go over the details of your treatment plan and the associated costs. At that time, we’ll also provide payment plan options to figure out the best plan. If you have orthodontic dental insurance, we can submit a pre-treatment claim to determine how your benefits will be applied. To do this, we just need your name, address, the telephone number of your insurance carrier, and the appropriate forms. Be sure to complete the insured or employee portion of your form and sign where required.
Every insurance policy is different and will provide different degrees of benefits. Regular dental insurance typically works differently from orthodontic insurance. Orthodontic insurance usually has a lifetime maximum benefit, the benefit usually covers a percentage of the orthodontic fee until the benefit is used up completely. Many policies exclude charges for retreatments and lost or broken appliances.
The exact extent of your benefits can only be determined by your insurance carrier. Therefore, we are unable to render services on the assumption that the fees will be covered by your insurance. However, we will assist you to provide any verification of continuing treatment that you and we are happy to assist you with the process of submitting insurance claims.
