Will Insurance Pay for Invisalign?
If you are considering Invisalign to straighten your teeth, the cost of treatment may be a major concern. Invisalign, like braces, represents a significant financial investment. It’s natural to assume that Invisalign will be too expensive and that your dream smile is simply out of reach. That doesn’t have to be the case!Depending on which service provider you choose, you may be pleasantly surprised by just how affordable Invisalign really is. Even better, if your insurance company includes orthodontic coverage, this coverage may help to offset treatment costs by several thousand dollars.
Insurance Payments for Invisalign: What You Need to Know
Many dental insurance plans provide coverage for Invisalign just as they would provide coverage for other orthodontic treatments. That means if your insurance plan partially covers the cost of braces, there's a good chance it will partially cover the cost of Invisalign treatment, too. You can confirm your coverage limits by checking your insurance benefits guide or speaking with a benefits coordinator.While insurance coverage is good news, we know that managing the benefits process can be a whole other paperwork nightmare. The Docbraces team is here to help. If your insurance policy includes orthodontic coverage, Docbraces offers to directly bill insurance providers for you by reassigning insurance benefits. We handle all the paperwork and take the amount covered by your insurance “off the top”. Assigning insurance benefits to Docbraces means we will handle the reimbursement claims process for you each month– streamlining payment and eliminating the hassle of unnecessary paperwork.
Invisalign Treatment Costs: What Will I Need to Pay?
Many different factors influence the cost of Invisalign. One of the biggest factors is treatment length. More complicated cases that require longer treatment to correct will generally cost more than less expensive cases. Other factors may also impact costs, including where you live and your provider’s experience level. Some Invisalign-trained orthodontists, including the orthodontists at Docbraces, offer affordable monthly payment plans to help offset treatment costs that are not covered by insurance.At Docbraces, for example, we offer no-interest financing on our pay-over-time plans. Even better, there’s no credit check required to qualify for these flexible, interest-free plans. The Docbraces team is committed to helping all patients achieve their dream of the perfect smile.
How to Afford Invisalign with Insurance Coverage and Zero-Interest Payment Plans
Achieving your dream smile and protecting your oral health will pay dividends for years to come. Don’t let assumptions about cost deter you from getting the treatment you deserve. Use our Invisalign calculator to estimate the cost of care and compare payment plan options. To help you estimate cost, keep these guidelines in mind:
- Limited treatment involving alignment of the front teeth only requiring just 6-12 months of treatment is approximately $2000-3900.
- The average orthodontic case requiring 16-24 months of treatment is approximately $5000-6900.
Docbraces offers 0% financing on payment plans as long as you meet the low down payment requirement and stay current on all monthly payments. If multiple family members are receiving simultaneous treatment, you may qualify for additional discounts to make treatment even more affordable.
