Insurance that covers braces?

Some dental insurance covers orthodontics and some does not. Most dental insurance purchased on an individual basis does not cover orthodontics and only a fraction of dental insurance provided from your employer covers this. Be aware that even if orthodontics is covered on group dental insurance that it usual has a waiting period where you must be on the policy for up to two years and even then the orthodontics coverage is limited to a set percentage. Normally if covered it only covers half of the cost of braces and up to a limit of $1000-2000 maximum. Dental insurance is very simple usually and you can get a brochure from the provider or just call the toll free number on the back of your insurance card.

What insurance covers braces?

Dental insurance would possibly cover a part of braces. Dental insurance sold on a group basis has different plans and only the most costly plan covers orthondonture and even then it only covers a portion of it with a dollar amount cap of $1000-$2000 depending on the plan itself. I don't know of any individual dental plan that covers braces. As a matter of full disclosure, I own and operate a smalltown Independent Insurance Agency in Central Georgia and have for 23 years. I also worked as an agent for a direct writer for 3 years prior to that.

Does the dental insurance cover invisalign braces?

That would depend upon the terms of the policy, but probably not. Most dental insurance does not cover orthodontics, and if it does, it probably wouldn't include Invisalign. That's mostly considered to be a cosmetic choice in appliances. Your policy may cover a portion of what regular braces would cost, and you would pay the difference out of pocket.

Does medical insurance pay for braces?

If you are addressing orthodontic braces, typically it does not; you would need to rely upon dental insurance. At that, much dental insurance pays only a portion of the cost of braces (half is typical). While the coverage and exclusions of the medical/health insurance policy control, there may be a valid argument that can be made for coverage of braces if they are necessitated by an otherwise covered occurrence, such as an auto collision. That is, if injuries are such that braces are "medically necessary" to return the injured person to full function, it may be argued that coverage exists (subject to all other terms, conditions, and limitations of the policy). If you are addressing prosthetic/orthopedic braces, they are generally covered by a medical/health insurance policy, subject to all other policy terms, conditions, and limitations, and provided that they are "medically necessary".
