Does dental insurance cover Invisalign?
Dental coverage for Invisalign and orthodontic treatment varies widely. The only real way to know if your plan covers Invisalign is to do a benefits check. Dr. Bracy’s staff is happy to contact your insurance carrier and let you know the details of your specific plan. In most cases, all we need is your insurance carrier name, member ID and date of birth.
Some PPO dental plans have coverage rates of $1,000 - $3,000 for Invisalign or orthodontic treatment. Often this benefit is limited to specific age ranges such as below age 19 only. But in other cases, all ages can receive the benefit. It depends on the contract setup between your employer and insurance company.
If you don’t have dental insurance or if your dental insurance does not provide any coverage for Invisalign, do not worry! There are many payment options for this type of dental treatment. An excellent option is a monthly payment plan through CareCredit. You can learn more about CareCredit and submit your application at carecredit.com
Another payment option is to use a flexible spending account (FSA) or health savings account (HSA). These accounts may offer savings through tax benefits and employer contributions.
