It is normally detailed whether braces are elective (not necessary) or intended to be covered. If it is not clear, I would move the Court for a request for order to determine whether braces will be covered.
The answers provided in this forum by me and transmitted by users of this forum are not to be considered legally binding in any way, nor is there an intent to form an attorney client relationship. If further information is required, seek competent legal counsel.
If it is not covered in the order, it might require determination by a judge. It would help tremendously if the orthodontist could say whether the braces were necessary for oral health and not purely cosmetic reasons.
