Our office accepts all PPO insurance plans. Orthodontic insurance is typically a lifetime benefit that can only be applied once and does not renew annually like your dental insurance does. We are happy to check your benefits for you in advance of any treatment provided and will file all claims on your behalf.
Also, don't let your tax-free dollars in Flexible Spending Accounts and Health Savings Accounts go to waste! Put them to good use on your orthodontic treatment with braces or Invisalign.
If you have any questions in regards to insurance, please give us a call or a text at (917) 859-3847. We are happy to assist you!
Paying for Orthodontic treatment
with tax-free dollars using an FSA or HSA
What is an FSA?
A flexible savings account, or FSA, is an account you may be able to use to pay for certain medical, dental, and orthodontic costs, including Invisalign clear aligners. Your FSA is managed by your employer, and you pay money into the account throughout the year, usually through a deduction from your paycheck. You may set aside up to $2,600 annually. Not all employers offer an FSA.
What is an HSA?
A health savings account, or HSA, is a special savings account designed for people with a high-deductible health insurance plan. You put money into the account and can use it to cover certain medical, dental, and orthodontic costs, including Invisalign clear aligners. You may set aside up to $3,400 for an individual or $6,750 for a family annually. To open an HSA, you must meet IRS eligibility requirements.
How do I know whether my insurance covers orthodontic treatment?
Ask your benefits manager at work, call your insurance plan’s customer service line, or look through your benefits package for “orthodontic treatment.” Orthodontic treatment is sometimes covered by health, rather than dental insurance, or by orthodontic coverage that you can purchase separately.
