Don’t Hold Your Smile Hostage
When it comes to straightening your teeth, moving forward with an Invisalign treatment can be a big decision. Invisalign® is an innovative treatment that uses clear, removable aligners to straighten your smile up to two times faster than metal braces. It’s a comfortable and convenient solution to crooked and misaligned teeth, allowing you to smile with confidence. Our expert dentist wants to make financing your treatment as easy as possible.
Here at Oakland Family Dental, we feature affordable options to reduce the cost of treatment and help make your dream smile possible. If you’re a resident of the Shelby, Bloomfield Hills, or Rochester, Michigan areas considering Invisalign treatment, explore our payment options and learn how you can take advantage of this incredible solution.
Using an FSA or HSA to Pay for Invisalign
An HSA is used for more long-term savings, while an FSA can be used regardless of what type of health insurance plan you have– both are used to fund medical expenses.
Managed by your employer, a flexible savings account (FSA) allows you to deduct money from your gross income to put into the account. An FSA typically allows you to put up to $2,600 aside each year.
A health savings account (HSA) is for people with high-deductible insurance plans. Like an FSA, you put money into your HSA throughout the year. An individual can save up to $3,400 per year, while a family account can save as much as $6,750 per year.
Flexible Payment Plans
To ease your financial worry, the cost of Invisalign treatment can be split up into monthly payments. This allows you to pay throughout the course of your treatment rather than covering the full amount upfront. However, this option typically requires a down payment.
We also offer CareCredit®, a popular, flexible financing program to help cover the cost of Invisalign treatment. It provides a range of convenient payment plans, including low-interest and interest-free options for payment periods of up to 24 months.
Trustworthy Dental Insurance
Dental insurance providers typically offer the same coverage for Invisalign as they do for braces. Many plans designate how much they’re willing to pay for orthodontic treatments, while others place a lifetime cap on orthodontic payouts.
If you’re unsure about your coverage, it’s best to check with your insurance company. Our team will be happy to help you find the answers you’re looking for and ensure you receive the maximum coverage available.
