Dr. Hong will be able to determine your cost based on the specifics of your individual needs. These factors can include the complexity of your case, how long your treatment will take, and your orthodontic insurance coverage.
What about insurance?
Many dental insurance plans cover Invisalign just as they would other orthodontic treatments like braces. Dr. Hong’s office or your insurance carrier can help you to determine the exact coverage for your treatment.
What are my other options?
If your insurance does not cover all of your treatment costs or if cost is a concern for you, talk to us about payment options – we offer flexible and affordable monthly payment plans, some with no interest. Many of our patients take advantage of our third party financing partners to spread their treatment costs over a longer time. You can also apply for these online before you come into the office.
What about flexible spending accounts?
Many companies offer their employees FSAs. A FSA allows you to set aside a portion of your paycheck in order to pay for qualified medical expenses.
The money you elect to contribute is deducted from your pay and transferred directly into your FSA and, therefore, is not subject to payroll taxes. After incurring eligible medical costs, you can then submit your receipt for reimbursement from your FSA provider.
Since Invisalign falls under orthodontic treatment, these costs can qualify for FSA reimbursement. If your company offers a FSA and you know you’d like to use it to pay for Invisalign, plan ahead and consult your benefits department. When it comes time to enroll in your program, you can authorize a deduction for the appropriate amount for your Invisalign treatment and save money while doing it, since its a pre-tax contribution. It’s an easy and convenient way to get the smile you want!
