If a helth insurance policy does not cover dental, does that mean it will not cover any orthodontic procedures?

  • Probably not.

  • Ours clearly states no dental coverage of any kind.

  • Few do, unfortunately. If it doesn't cover basic dental, I would think it is safe to assume that orthadontics is definitely out of question.

  • I would think it wouldn't. Never hurts to call and ask.

  • No.

    I work for a health insurance company.

    Unless its a procedure that is going to be preformed by an oral surgeon and can be determined as medical rather than dental.

    Call your insurance company to find out for sure.

  • No. If it's a dental issue, even x-rays, regular health insurance does not cover it. You have to have dental insurance.

  • Like PPs said.
    Orthodontics is even more rare, in fact many dental insurances don't cover it.
