Orthodontist fee deadline extended

The health authority (NZa) has given orthodontists an extra year to slash their fees. The 29% reduction on 2001’s charges must be fully achieved by 2010 rather than 2009, the NZa announced on Thursday. The extension to the deadline was reached after talks with dentists, insurers, orthodontists and patient organisations.
