Can I use FSA for Orthodontics?

using hsa or fsa for orthodontics

Did you know you can use your FSA for orthodontic treatment? In most cases, orthodontic treatment payments are eligible to draft from both a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) & Health Savings Account (HSA). This is a great way to utilize the money you’re already setting aside for your health!

Keep in mind that your FSA or HSA will only cover payment(s) that are from your patient portion only. Any payment(s) covered by dental insurance or another plan are not eligible. Aka, no double dipping!

Questions we get often about using FSA or HSA benefits:

Do I have to pay in full to use my FSA or HSA card?

No, you don’t have to. Our office offers various payment options. It will be up to your discretion whether you pay in full or choose a monthly, zero-percent financing option.

Can I use my FSA or HSA for my child’s orthodontics?

Yes! These types of accounts are typically offered by your employer. These funds are for yourself, your spouse, and any eligible dependents.

What if I don’t have enough in my FSA or HSA to cover the entire treatment cost?

If your total patient portion is more than you have available in your FSA or HSA, don’t worry! You can still use the amount available and then switch to another card once that set-aside money runs out. We understand you may be using this card to cover other health expenses also!

What else should I be aware of when using my FSA or HSA for orthodontic treatment?

You will probably need to submit a copy of your payment contract with KCC Orthodontics. They will also require detailed receipts that correspond with each payment. We’re more than happy to print these or email them over for you anytime! Call our office and request a detailed receipt. (281) 392-0888

Does using FSA or HSA affect my dental insurance?

No, these accounts are separate from any dental insurance benefit you may have. They do not have an effect on each other. We will file your dental insurance to pay their portion (according to your dental insurance plan).

We hope that this has given you a better understanding of how to use your FSA or HSA to pay for orthodontic treatment! Keep in mind that this money may expire toward the end of the year. Don’t risk losing it! It may be beneficial to pay a lump sum toward braces or Invisalign at that time.

To schedule a consultation appointment, please fill out our consultation request form! We look forward to meeting you! If you are a current patient and you would like to use your FSA or HSA card, please call us at 281-392-0888. Save money & Keep Smiling, KCC family!

Doesn’t everyone romanticize orthodontic elastics?! 🥰😂

Not everyone has to wear elastics during their orthodontic treatment. If you do, wearing elastics consistently is vital to completing your treatment on time! ✔️ May as well romanticize it! 💙

It may be April Fools today, but this is not a joke… it actually happened!

Story Time:

One of the first things new hires contribute to the team is by refilling our glove jars! Well...one of our girls, when she started, forgot to check for the glove size before filling Dr. G's glove jar!

She put size small gloves in when they are supposed to be large! Dr. G had trouble getting those gloves on when it was time to see a patient and thought someone MUST be playing a joke on him!! OOPS! 😬🤪 It really was an accident!

These things happen but thankfully they don't stop us from doing what we do best. 😀 Giving YOU the smile you've always wanted.

Have a blessed day, KCC fam! Hope you have a good laugh today with lighthearted april fools jokes! 😂

🌟FUN FACT #1: Dr. G has practiced in the dental field for over 30 years! He specialized in cosmetic dentistry before orthodontics.

🌟FUN FACT #2: Dr. Gutierrez is one of the leading doctors who has treated Invisalign patients. When Invisalign launched, they called on him to speak at seminars and teach other doctors!!
