Many dental insurance plans provide coverage for orthodontics. Drs. Savage, Sabol & Visser work with their patients living in Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Chesapeake and Virginia’s eastern shore, and the surrounding communities to help them determine if they may have orthodontic coverage for their treatment and to reduce their out-of-pocket expense.

How Do I Know If My Dental Insurance Plan Provides Orthodontic Coverage?

Many dental insurance plans typically offer coverage for orthodontic coverage; however, it is often an elective that can be selected if needed. We recommend you talk with your insurance carrier to find out if they offer orthodontic coverage and how you can add that to your plan.

Orthodontic coverage is usually paid in a quarterly amount to your orthodontist and is available once for each person on your policy. We can help you with your insurance to answer any questions you may have and walk you through the process of finding out if you have insurance in order to reduce your out-of-pocket expense.

Why Does My Orthodontic Insurance Cover Only a Portion of the Cost?

Most orthodontic insurance does not cover the entire cost; instead, it covers a portion. Each plan is different and has different rules for using it. We work with most insurance companies to determine your out-of-pocket costs prior to beginning your treatment.

Can I Use my FSA for Orthodontics?

Orthodontics is allowable with most FSA plans. They simply require you to provide proof of the expense by sending them an itemized receipt from the orthodontist. With FSA, the fund is replenished each year and may cover much of the cost of orthodontics depending on how much you contribute and if you use the funds for other medical issues.

Drs. Savage, Sabol & Visser provide orthodontic treatments to children, teens and adults living in Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Chesapeake and Onley, VA to correct teeth and jaw misalignment and improve their smiles.
