A healthcare savings account, or HCSA, is a non-taxable health benefits bank account that allows you to save and pay for your out-of-pocket health care expenses, which may include Invisalign treatment.
You don’t pay taxes on the money you put in an HCSA.
Before you begin your Invisalign treatment, talk to both your doctor’s office and your benefits manager. You may be able to pay your doctor and be reimbursed from your HCSA. Your benefits provider may also be able to pay your doctor directly.
Many third-party insurance plans cover Invisalign treatment the same way they cover braces. Your third-party insurance may pay for a certain percentage of your Invisalign treatment, or it may pay for a certain dollar amount. Often there is a lifetime cap on the amount third-party insurance will pay for orthodontic treatment.
Ask your benefits manager at work, call your third-party 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 third-party insurance, or by orthodontic coverage that you can purchase separately.
When you book your consultation, ask which third-party insurance plans your doctor accepts. Your doctor’s office can also call your third-party insurance provider to check your coverage.
A monthly payment plan is an arrangement between you and your doctor to spread the cost of your Invisalign clear aligners over the length of your treatment. Typically, doctors will request a down payment before treatment begins.
Making small payments throughout the course of your Invisalign treatment rather than all at once can make it easier to plan your monthly budget.
Many doctors offer flexible and affordable monthly payment plans. Before or during your consultation for Invisalign treatment, ask your doctor what options they offer.
The iTero digital scanning system eliminates the need for messy putty in your mouth by creating a 3D digital scan of your teeth. It offers a fast and more comfortable experience and it’s more accurate, resulting in a more precise fit from your Invisalign aligners.
A doctor’s overall experience level reflects the relative number of patients he/she has treated with Invisalign® aligners. Doctors who have achieved the “Plus” status have more experience within a given level. Doctors who have achieved the VIP status are Valued Invisalign Providers.
In addition to treating adults, doctors with a star in their icon also treat teens with Invisalign clear aligners.
