The general physical, cleaning and x-rays should run you less than
$250 to start with – all reimbursable by RPSC. Unfortunately, beyond
the exam/cleaning, all dental work is your financial responsibility.
This is where the process definitely has the potential to get
expensive. I paid over $2000 to have my wisdom teeth out & some
fillings done before I could be cleared to go. Ouch!
One suggestion (which I need to be better at): turn in all of your
expense reports RIGHT AWAY. You can have a check & be completely
repaid before you leave – just keep up on that paperwork.
