Many people get dental coverage through their employer and can choose dental coverage as part of their benefits. If not, you can buy coverage on your own through a health insurance carrier that sells individual and family dental insurance plans, or through the Health Insurance Marketplace.
Not all Dental Insurance Plans cover orthodontics. Be sure to check with your dental coverage provider prior to your visit. We welcome patients with orthodontic insurance and are committed to see that our patients collect the maximum benefits to which they are entitled. If you need help verifying your coverage please contact our office for assistance.
A Flexible Spending Account (also known as a flexible spending arrangement) is a special account you put money into that you use to pay for certain out-of-pocket health care costs.You don’t pay taxes on this money. This means you’ll save an amount equal to the taxes you would have paid on the money you set aside. But, if you don’t use the entire amount of monies you have allotted at the end of each calendar year, you may lose it.
A Health Savings Account (HSA) is a tax-advantaged medical savings account available to taxpayers who are enrolled in a high-deductible health plan (HDHP), and the funds contributed to an account are not subject to federal income tax at the time of deposit.
A HDHP is a plan with a higher deductible than a traditional insurance plan. The monthly premium is usually lower, but you pay more health care costs yourself before the insurance company starts to pay its share (your deductible). A HDHP can be combined with a health savings account (HSA), allowing you to pay for certain medical expenses with money free from federal taxes.
"At the beginning of each calendar year, it would be wise to create a budget, calculating your expected out-of-pocket medical and dental costs and set your amounts accordingly. One of the above savings acounts will actually save you money by reducing your income taxes."
