Financing Your Treatment

How much do braces cost?

Haeger Orthodontics determines costs based upon the complexity and duration of treatment. Because patients have very different needs, each case is evaluated independently. For example, patients with a severe bite problem who will require more appliances, will probably have a higher cost than a simpler, shorter treatment scenario.

If a patient is ready to start treatment at the first visit, we will estimate the fee and explain what is included. Our staff will help develop a flexible payment plan that works for you.

What payment options are available?

At Haeger Orthodontics, we understand that orthodontia is a significant investment in time and money. In an effort to keep orthodontic fees down, while maintaining the highest level of professional care, we have established this financial policy:


  1. When treatment is started the day of the initial exam appointment, we will offer a $100 savings off your full orthodontic treatment fee.
  2. When full payment is made at the onset of treatment, we offer a 5% savings off any portion of the fee not covered by insurance.
  3. To fit the needs of our patients, a financial arrangement can be made to extend your payments over a period of months following an appropriate down payment.
  4. For your convenience, we offer direct deposit services from personal bank accounts.
  5. In case of serious delinquency, treatment will be discontinued, although we will make every effort to accommodate our patients who may experience temporary difficulties.

Do you accept my insurance?

We are preferred providers for Aetna-PPO and DHA, Delta Dental PPO and premier, Decare, United Concordia, Premera, Cigna-PPO (formerly known as Radius), Assurant, and Dentegra.

If you have insurance, we will help you determine the available coverage. You can depend on our team to guide you through the insurance maze, filing insurance claims and answering questions. Typically, we will ask that you assign your insurance benefit to Haeger Orthodontics. Payment arrangements can be made for the balance. Professional care is provided to you, our patient, and not to an insurance company. As a result, the insurance company is responsible to the patient and the patient is responsible to our office.

We will help in every way we can in filing your claim and handling insurance questions for our office on your behalf.
