Like any major dental or even medical procedure, orthodontic procedures can cost several thousand dollars, not all of which is covered by your insurance (depending on the plan; see below).
How much you may have to pay out of pocket depends on the type of procedure and, of course, the specifics of your insurance policy. One way many of my patients pay for their procedures is by utilizing the benefits of what is known as “Flex Spending,” where an account through their work can be used to pay for braces with pre-tax dollars.
How can you make the most of your employer’s Flex Plan so that the amount out of your pocket is reduced to a more manageable figure? Click here for three solutions you can take action on starting today.
