Would Insurance Coverage for Invisalign?

After reading many reviews, good and bad, I decided this is something I want to try. I have insurance and was wondering if something like Invisalign would be covered (at least most of the cost)?

Invisalign is covered under Orthodontic policy

Insurance will cover Invisalign under your Orthodontic policy, not your regular dental coverage. If you have that in your policy then a portion, not all of it, will be covered. If you have $1000 coverage for ortho then when the Dr bills the $5000 for the Invisalign, insurance will then pay only up to $1000 towards your treatment, not the $5000 that was billed.

Yes, but only if you have orthodontic coverage on your insurance policy.  Many do not and many others only allow it up to a certain age.  Call your dental insurance company and ask them about your orthodontic coverage.
