A Step-by-Step Guide to Get Medical Benefits for Dental Care of Ectodermal Dysplasias

Families affected by ectodermal dysplasias encounter a wide range of challenges as they strive to meet their needs and that of their children. They face troublesome problems such as treatment issues, school concerns and dealing with insurance companies.

Ectodermal dysplasias are a diverse group of genetic disorders that involve defects of the hair, nails, teeth, and glands. While medical insurance generally covers problems related to the hair, skin, nails and other aspects of the disorder, some don’t cover the dental care needed because of dental exclusions.

You must make a case with the insurer to encourage them to cover the dental-related costs of this medical condition. Proper education of the insurance company may enable approval of dental-related costs under the insurance policy’s birth defect (congenital anomaly) language or medical necessity language.

This comprehensive tool kit will guide you step by step through the process of filing claims for your dental care with your medical insurance. You will receive letter templates, and other resources to help you navigate the process.
