Using Your FSA Or HSA For Orthodontic Treatment
Have you been considering getting braces for yourself or a loved one? Here’s something you should think about if you have a Flexible Spending Account (FSA). As we wind down the year and head into the holiday season, a lot of important year end considerations end up being overlooked, including FSAs. If you have an FSA, don’t forget that they can expire, typically at the end of the year. The money you receive is basically “use it or lose it” because it typically doesn’t roll over every year ($500 may roll over, depending on the employer’s policy). It’s also worth mentioning that a Health Savings Account (HSA) can be used for both dental and orthodontic treatments as well.
Both the Flexible Spending Account (FSA) and Health Savings Account (HSA) are popular payment options for orthodontic treatments, making it possible to pay for a significant amount of out-of-pocket orthodontic expenses using pre-tax dollars. So if you have any money left in your account, this is the perfect time to use it. Taking advantage of your Flexible Spending Account now before it expires will make getting braces a lot more affordable. At iSmiles Orthodontics, we’re happy to say that we accept both FSA and HSA as payment options.
