One of the techs I talk to every time I visit told me she only has to pay 29 dollars a month. The normal payment is 149 per month, and she said just by working there she gets half off, then insurances covers all but the 29 dollars.
They don´t get it for free? My ortho boss gives all his staff (and their children ) free treatment. And friends of his staff gets very very good prices (1/3 of the price). I thought that was the norm :shock: . The same does other orthos I know.
