A Flexible Spending Account (FSA) gives you the opportunity to pay for a variety of out-of-pocket medical expenses on a pre-tax basis. Since FSAs are generally use-it or lose-it financial tools, planning is the key to effectively using all of the funds you have contributed.
Did you know that non-cosmetic dental care is covered as an FSA-eligible medical expense? For example, a cleaning, root canal or a filling would be covered since these are seen as “medically necessary” procedures.
Other dental care that you can use your FSA for:
- Extractions and implants
- Caps and crowns
- Fluoride treatment
*Your FSAs will list specific guidelines about coverage for orthodontia.
If you are due for a teeth cleaning or need dental work and have an FSA account, this is a great time to schedule your appointment and utilize your allocated funds. If you have any questions about eligibility, please contact us. We can help you check with your FSA administrator to determine what’s covered.
