Frequently Asked Questions Insurance

My child has or needs braces. If the braces are applied before I enroll in a FEDVIP plan, would my new carrier cover any of the remaining cost since my child's treatment will continue for 2 to 3 years?

In general, FEDVIP dental plans will not cover the cost of any orthodontic appliances that were placed before enrollment in the plan and satisfaction of any waiting period. Although, after meeting the orthodontic waiting period, certain plans may prorate these costs.
