The Select Plan provides a $1,500 lifetime orthodontic benefit per covered individual. Benefits are paid at 50% of the allowed amount for authorized services. Treatment plans usually include an initial down payment and ongoing monthly fees. If an initial down payment is required, Choices will pay up to 50% of the initial payment, up to 1/3 of the total treatment charge. In addition, Delta Dental (our dental plan administrator) will establish a monthly reimbursement based on your provider’s monthly fee and your prescribed treatment plan.
