Does the health insurance fund provide compensation for an orthodontic treatment?
The Estonian Health Insurance Fond compensates the costs of orthodontic consultations for patients up to 19 years of age, and the cost of the entire orthodontic treatment for complicated cases.
Kliinik 32 keeps records of the waiting list for orthodontic treatment in the Denta software program, which is used by several dental clinics. A patient can be added to the waiting list by an administrator or a doctor. The following information is entered in the database when the patient is signing up for the waiting list: first and last name, personal identification code, entry date, required service and issue. The longest allowable time on the waiting list for individuals that are under 19 years of age with medical insurance is 9 months.
