So how does insurance work? Insurance carriers and their subscribers have a specific agreement that determines the benefits included in that contract.
Orthodontic insurance generally differs from regular dental insurance because each insured individual usually has a maximum lifetime benefit for orthodontic services.
This benefit is a percentage of the orthodontic fee, including diagnostic records, initial fees, monthly payments, etc., until the maximum amount is reached.
Charges for lost or broken appliances may not be covered by insurance.
