Orthodontics can vary considerably in the period of treatment, cost and how you’re billed.
Before agreeing to commence orthodontic treatment determine your payment plan with the provider. This may involve an upfront payment followed by instalments during the expected treatment period. Ask the provider what options are available and for a written plan once it’s agreed to.
Should you choose to pay for the total treatment up front, please be aware Emergency Services Health benefits will be spread over the treatment period and are subject to Annual and Lifetime Maximum limits and waiting periods. For more information please call us.
Please note, that while orthodontic annual limits are per calendar year, the amount you’re eligible to claim in your first 4 years of membership is determined by your length of membership based on anniversary year.
Transferring from another fund? Give us a call to check what benefits you will receive in your anniversary year.
