Yes, with prior authorization and a determination of medically necessary (ie. not purely cosmetic). A MassHealth dentist/orthodontist can help with the process. Good luck. It's not a quick and easy process, but it is definitely worth it!

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.

It really depends on the orthodontist and the type of braces they use. You can get free consultations from pretty much any orthodontist. They will tell you about how long you will need to wear them, you can decide together what type you want and they will let you know how much it will cost.

Beware Lags in Dental Insurance?

Dental insurance does not always cover major procedures, such as braces or other orthodontic care. Sometimes, plans will cover these expensive procedures, but only after a policyholder has been paying premiums for a certain amount of time. Pay attention to any potential lags in coverage to avoid surprises. Few things would be worse than getting a child fit for braces only to find out that the parent has to cover the entire bill because of an exclusion in the fine print of a dental insurance policy.
