Saving Money On Invisalign clear aligners

Orthodontics may seem like a way for you to look more pleasing and attractive, but that’s only its benefit. When you’ve got crooked teeth, there are areas in your mouth that will not be able to reach by your toothbrush. Thus, plaque will develop, and later on can cause cavities. Cavities can lead to gum problems, tooth decay, and even losing your tooth. Yes, the cost of orthodontic treatment may be high, but there are ways you can lower its cost. Below are some of them.

Insurance Friendly – More and more insurance plans are starting to cover the cost of dental alignment therapy, which usually includes this type of treatment. Do a bit of research, especially with your current insurance provider, on how your policy can help save you money. There’s a chance that your standard insurance won’t be able to cover it as some insurance companies require you to have higher premiums to avail of the insurance. Additionally, the insurance provider won’t pay all the costs, and you are likely to have out-of-pocket expenses. Dentistry At Its Finest accepts most PPO insurances. We also file your insurance on your behalf, and we’ll help you know the details of what your policy can cover. We also provide a complimentary benefits check and handle all your paperwork to make sure that your benefits are maximized.

 

Government programs – Medicare and Medicaid will not help you pay for invisible braces. Medicare is intended for people over 65 years old and is likely to cover emergency-related dental expenses only. There’s a small chance that your Medicaid in your state can help particularly for a child through the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). If you’re looking to get coverage for your child, you could give Medicaid a try. However, you need to prove that invisible braces are a viable solution when there are cheaper alternatives like metal braces that work just as fine.

 

Flexible Spending Accounts – Flexible Savings Account or FSA is a set of pretax money taken from your salary every payday. Its purpose is to cover your healthcare costs, such as dental treatment. This is only available to the employer that includes this in their employee benefits package. The good news is that most employers already have it in their benefits package. However, FSA funds do not roll over; therefore, if you do not want the funds to go to waste, use it up before the end of the year. Learn more about FSAs here.

 

Health Savings Accounts – Health Savings Account or HSA is a government-regulated savings account similar to FSA and is used to cover the costs not paid by your insurance provider. There are critical differences with HSA over FSA. For instance, contributions are tax-deductible. Funds in FSA don’t roll over, but in HSA funds do rollover. However, HSA will require you to have a high-deductible insurance policy. Talk to your benefits representative and your doctor about HSA because it might cover the cost of this particular service and be reimbursed from your HSA or FSA. Your benefits provider may also be able to pay your doctor directly. Find out more about HSAs here.

 

Dental Schools – Most dental schools offer a discount on the treatment. Search for dental schools near you and ask if they can get you treated for a refund. If they do, they offer higher discounts than most dental offices can provide. This is because a student dentist will treat you, but don’t worry because a board-certified professional will assist them during your procedure.

 

In-House Payments – Since many people find most dental treatments expensive, they do not visit a dental office. To solve this, most offices have in-house payment plans. The dental office divides the total cost and patients to pay the total of their bill for 6, 12 up to 24 months. We want to help you avoid the dilemma of not visiting a dental office at all; that is why we make it easier to pay for your treatment. Our office accepts major credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, American Express). We also work with outside finance providers such as GreenSkyCredit, CareCredit, and the Lending Club.
