My not so internet savvy coworker has a son who needs braces. She has Wellcare Insurance for him and cannot seem to find an orthodontist in the area that takes Wellcare. She has checked in the provider directory and tells me that the Dr reviews for Dr's within 40 miles are horrible. I told her that rarely does anyone go online to write a good review so she should get a consult and make her own judgements. The problem with that is that just booking a consult has turned into a nightmare of never answering calls and cancelled appts. Do you guys have any advice or have you used anyone who you know accepts Wellcare. She already knows which Dr she is going to use if she pays out of pocket she is just hoping not to have to. Thanks for the tips!

I thought they did not pay for braces?

They only cover braces if it is medically necessary...not cosmetic.
