Affordable Braces for Kids
How much do braces cost?
We get this question all the time! We believe that no child should have to forgo needed orthodontic treatment on the basis of cost, so we do everything possible to make braces affordable for all our patients who need them.
Medicaid Coverage for Braces
Medicaid recognizes the importance of braces for lifelong oral health which is why they could potentially cover the full cost of treatment for children with proven malocclusion issues such as overbite, underbite, crossbite or severe crowding. At an orthodontic evaluation, we will determine if your child’s treatment is likely to be covered and will manage the full Medicaid approval process by submitting the necessary documentation and patient Records. Once submitted, Medicaid examiners determine the severity of the case and will determine if the case will be covered. Once this process is complete, you and our office will be notified if your child has been accepted or denied treatment
Other Insurance Coverage
Most private insurance plans will have a one time, fixed reimbursement benefit, if you have orthodontic benefits included in your plan. This reimbursement can be applied towards the total cost of orthodontic treatment which in turn, lowers your monthly payments. Contact your insurance provider to learn more about their orthodontic coverage.
Personal Payment Plans
For adults and children without insurance coverage, we offer a number of affordable payment plans. Our orthodontic coordinators can explain these options, and help you decide what’s best for you.
Braces may be more affordable than you think. Don’t let cost stand in the way of your child’s perfect smile. Schedule an orthodontic evaluation today to learn more about orthodontic treatment plans, costs and payment options.
