Rates

We cannot give the total cost of orthodontic treatment precisely in advance. First of all, the price depends on the type of braces. There are removable, partially fixed and fully fixed braces. The cost also depends on the course of treatment and the type of treatment. A very rough indication is that an average brace treatment costs between 2,500 and 3,500 euros, including technique costs. The average treatment duration is between two and three years. It is best to assume three insurance years when making the calculations. It is also important to know that the treatment costs are not always divided proportionally over the years. During the first consultation, the orthodontist will tell you the approximate expected costs for the braces treatment.

NZa tariff list

In the Netherlands, the rates for orthodontic treatments are set annually by the government (NZa) and recorded in a performance list. Every orthodontist in the Netherlands is obliged to use this performance list so that the rates are comparable everywhere.

Reimbursement health insurers

In many cases, the cost of braces is largely covered by supplementary insurance. There are big differences between the reimbursements by insurers. Therefore, check your insurance policy carefully to see what you are entitled to or adjust your insurance policy if necessary.

Costs are almost never reimbursed from basic insurance. Only in very serious and exceptional cases, for example if the state of your teeth appears on the indicative list 'Reimbursement of special dentistry.' The orthodontist will indicate if you qualify for this indicative list and will submit an application to the insurance company. If your insurance agrees, the reimbursement will come from the basic insurance. The reimbursement will then fall under the deductible. Have you opted for a voluntary deductible excess? Then the costs will be paid first from the compulsory excess and then from your voluntary excess. If you have met your deductible, this care will be reimbursed by the insurance. The deductible applies to insured persons aged 18 and over.

It is also good to know that those on social assistance can claim special assistance in many municipalities when they need braces.
