United Concordia Coverage Availability & Fees
United Concordia offers a range of PPO and DHMO plans, each of which comes with its own unique set of rules and stipulations. Usually, policies cover preventive care at 100%, minor restorative services at 70 – 80%, and major services at 50%.
Typically, orthodontia falls into its own category. Not all United Concordia plans cover it. Those that do, however, typically assign a lifetime maximum to orthodontic treatment. That is to say, once you hit that spending limit, your insurance cannot be used for braces or similar treatments again. However, that isn’t necessarily a bad thing — if you are diligent about maintaining the results of your orthodontic treatment, it is unlikely that you will need retreatment in the future.
Often, insurance plans cover orthodontia at about 50%, up to the amount of a plan’s lifetime maximum. For many patients, this means they can save hundreds of dollars or more on their care.
It is also worth noting that some dental insurance plans limit their orthodontic coverage to younger patients (the age limit may be somewhere in the 18 – 21 range).
