Home   Docbraces Difference   Direct Billing

For patients who have an insurance policy that includes orthodontic coverage, Docbraces offers to accept assignment of insurance benefits*. This means you don’t have to go through the hassle of having to submit insurance claims for reimbursement each month because we’ll take care of that for you.

The best part is, we take the amount covered by your insurance provider “off the top” and spread the remaining treatment fee across a 0% interest**, flexible payment schedule.

You can take advantage of this service and even begin treatment the day you visit our office by providing us with your insurance information when you first contact one of our offices to schedule your free, initial consultation.

For us to explore the details of your insurance policy we’ll need:

  • The name of your insurance provider
  • Your policy number
  • Your certificate number
  • And the full name and date of birth of the policy holder

With this information we can communicate with your provider to determine if your policy includes orthodontic coverage, the amount covered by your policy, and whether or not your provider and plan includes the option to assign benefits to a third party. I.e. allows for direct billing.

If you intend to use multiple insurance policies to cover the cost of treatment we will need the information listed above for each policy. Each provider must allow for assignment of insurance benefits for us to be able to offer you this service.

*Available only if insurance providers and policies allow for assignment of insurance benefits.

**Providing payment schedule is adhered to and account is in good standing.
