An orthodontic treatment is usually covered by private insurance companies. In order to assess the coverage, the insurance company asks for an individual diagnosis (3D scans, photos, X-rays). For a more detailed assessment of the situation, you are welcome to arrange a non-binding consultation appointment. An initial consultation may be done using our Online survey.
In any case, we recommend that you submit the cost plan to your health insurance company before initiating the orthodontic therapy. Depending on the type and scope of your insurance as well as the current legal framework, you will be informed by your insurer about the possible of reimbursement of the treatment costs. The amount of reimbursement depends on the conditions of your insurance as well as additional services agreed upon, but may range up to 100%.
Reimbursement of private insurance companies
The reimbursement of treatment costs by the private insurance companies has unfortunately changed over the last years.
In many medical fields, the justifications for cost coverage are often difficult to understand for the patient. For any insurance, a payment to the policyholder represents a financial loss. In this respect, it is not surprising that insurance companies try to avoid paying for these services, even though you as a patient may be entitled to them. This dubious practice is increasingly being discussed in the media.
