A patient’s insurance may cover clear braces or aligners. Be sure to check for coverage under the dental insurance policy and the health insurance policy under “orthodontic treatment.” Sometimes straight teeth is covered on a health policy for medical purposes.
Monthly Payment Plan
Many doctors offer a convenient monthly payment plan to their patients that typically begins with a down payment. Be sure to discuss this with your patients as this is a very budget-friendly option.
HSA (Health Savings Account)
For those with high-deductible insurance plans, a HSA may have been set up to cover certain medical, dental, and orthodontic costs. Patients can open this account on their own or through their job if the employer offers it. The money placed in a HSA is not taxable.
FSA (Flexible Savings Account)
A FSA is set up through a job/employment opportunity. The money deducted from a paycheck that goes into this account is not taxed, and can be used to pay for certain medical, dental, and orthodontic costs. If you do not have a FSA account, ask your employer if one can be set up for you.
Cash, check, or credit
Some dentists will give an extra discount for patients who pay cash. Only you can decide if this is right for your practice. Additionally, patients can also put their clear braces on a credit card and get perks that way, too.
