Flexible Spending Accounts
A flexible spending account is set up through your employer, which allows you to set aside pre-tax dollars for medical and dental expenses. It is important to set up these accounts early to maximize your savings. Many employers have deadlines at the beginning of each year. Therefore, it is important to check with your plan administrator to determine the actual sign-up dates. This will give you plenty of time to budget for your orthodontic expenses. By scheduling your initial consultation with us, we can help you plan out how much money you will need to cover your treatment.
These are “use it or lose it” accounts. Essentially, this means you have a short window at the end of the calendar year to use up your flexible spending account funds before they are lost. Our team is always happy to assist you in planning wisely.
