These treatments involve the use of apparatuses to correct an abnormal position of the teeth and jaws in order to prevent an anomaly or to prevent the appearance or deterioration of a malformation. Only dependent children under 21 years of age are covered.

The MÉDIC Construction card cannot be used for reimbursement of orthodontics costs. A treatment plan giving the date that treatment begins, its duration, and its cost must first be authorized by the Commission de la construction du Québec (CCQ).

Orthodontics treatments are reimbursable in a single payment following the payment at the time aparatus is installed. Certain conditions apply:

  • You must send to MÉDIC Construction the original receipt for payment that you made to the orthodontist.
  • The insurance plan that you have at the time the appartus is installed must include reimbursement for orthodontic care.
  • The maximum reimbursable annuity per child under your insurance plan must not have been reached.

If the treatment plan is interrupted, you must notify the CCQ and reimburse all overpayments.

The Bulletin MÉDIC Construction for each plan indicates the amounts that may be reimbursed.

Specific conditions, limitations, or exclusions may apply to reimbursement of certain coverage. Only the Règlement sur les régimes complémentaires d'avantages sociaux dans l'industrie de la construction has legal value.
