Using Your Health Savings Account To Save On Orthodontic Treatment
As the end of the year approaches and we move into the busy holiday season, it’s easy to overlook important year end considerations, including a Health Savings Account (HSA) or Flexible Savings Account (FSA). This is the perfect time to take advantage of unused funds from this fiscal year left in these types of accounts before losing them (this is typically the case with FSA). What you may not realize is that you can use the funds for orthodontic treatment. So, if you’ve been putting off braces for you or a loved one, now’s the time to move forward, giving yourself or someone else a gorgeous smile.
More about FSA and HSA
With FSA, unused dollars are usually lost if not used, however, employers often have different guidelines for their plans. In contrast to an FSA, an HSA allows the balance to roll over year to year so you don’t lose your savings. The majority of both types of accounts qualify orthodontic treatments, including braces and systems like Invisalign. Orthodontics is described as the treatment of irregularities in the jaw and teeth, including problems of occlusion and alignment, which typically requires treatment to fix bad bites and straighten teeth.
Your next step should be to schedule a consultation with an orthodontist which will make the process of planning out the best treatment and payment process a lot simpler. At E&S Orthodontics, your Phoenix Orthodontics, our goal is to help our patients achieve the smile they deserve and make the process as stress free as possible.
