which medical aid??

Hi! Finally went to the dentist..He informed me that Braces are my only option. If I want them behind my teeth it will range anything from R45K upwards...I need to find a medical aid that will cover this procedure 100%...Does one still exist that will cover most or all of the costs involved..I also need to cover visits as a consultation by my orthodontist is over R1300!! PLEASE HELP...
Oh. and is it possible to get my teeth bleached before getting the braces fitted..?

Dear Crunchy.

Does your orthodontist charge medical rates as ALL medical aids only pay the medical aid rate. YOu will have to check with a broker for the different medical aids.

I would wait until the orthodontics are completed before doing the whitening.
Good luck
