Orthodontia Benefit (as of May 1, 2019)
Eligible Participants have a $3,200 lifetime maximum. This will no longer count against the $2,000 dental family allowance.
If you use a Plan participating dentist they must accept the Carpenters Orthodontia Allowance as payment-in full.
There is no plan year for orthodontia benefits, and the Fund will now pay providers directly over an 18-month time frame. A claim form must be submitted each month for payment.
- First payment $650.00
- An additional payment of $150.00 will be made each month after, up to a maximum payment of $3,200.00 (as long as the Participant is eligible).
If you pay out-of-pocket for covered expenses you will be reimbursed. Just send as itemized paid receipt to the Fund office.
Please note: Smile Direct Club is not covered under the Orthodontia Benefit.
