For No-Fault and managed care plans, we will give you a claim form that you can submit to your insurance company so that you can try to obtain reimbursement.

Medicare patients cannot get any reimbursement from Medicare or any other insurance plan, as Dr. Weiss has 'opted out' of Medicare.

For braces and splints, please be advised that even if we bill your insurance, the costs of braces and splints are your responsibility. These charges may be subject to a separate co-payment or a separate deductible.
