byte And Guardian Life Team Up To Provide Members Coverage Of byte Invisible Aligners

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

byte, the world’s fastest growing doctor-driven direct-to-consumer invisible aligner company, has announced a partnership with The Guardian Life Insurance Company of America® (Guardian Life) to extend coverage of byte invisible aligners to its orthodontic members. By having byte as an “in-network” provider, Guardian Life will provide members greater access to care and affordable pricing for at-home invisible aligner therapy to straighten teeth.

This innovative benefit enables eligible plan members who cannot receive in-office treatment or prefer an at-home experience for straightening their teeth to do so remotely with byte’s teledentistry platform. This includes assessment by a licensed doctor, a prescribed customized treatment plan, and remote monitoring throughout treatment.

As part of the in-network relationship, Guardian Life members can receive invisible aligners at an exclusive discounted price which equates to more than 60% less than traditional braces1, a significant savings. Qualified Guardian Life members will have access to:

  • A byte treatment plan prescribed and monitored by dentists and orthodontists, including a full set of aligners and teeth whitening
  • The exclusive HyperByte high frequency vibration device, which allows for faster treatment times and reduces discomfort of aligner therapy
  • First set of retainers included at the end of treatment
  • Byte-for-Life guarantee

Guardian plan members with orthodontic coverage can start the process today by visiting byte’s website (https://go.byteme.com/guardian) and ordering an at-home impression kit. When it comes to payments, eligible plan members can review their benefit information and any potential out-of-pocket expenses with byte’s reimbursement team.

byte’s teledentistry platform and customer care is rated the highest in the industry according to leading third-party review sites such as BestCompany2, and all Guardian patients receive the byte-for-life guarantee.
