Currently I am doing fine with my ortho payments, last payment should be in January. However, in August I dropped my insurance and picked up my husbands (we work for the same company, so same plan, same coverage) because I went part time to go back to school. The financial person at my ortho quit, and they just hired someone new this month. Originally, we signed to be responsible for only $1500 of my treatment and my insurance is supposed to be responsible for the rest. My ortho said they will bill insurance for my braces, but they have to do it from my original banding date, so i don't know if insurance will notice they already paid April - August for my braces and deny the claim, or if they will just pay the remaining balance. If insurance doesn't pay for the rest of my braces, then that is another $1500+ my husband and I will unexpectedly be responsible for, and will honestly have to struggle to pay.
