Should I use my FSA towards Dental work?
Sometimes it’s hard to know how best to use the money you’ve been saving all year in your Flexible Spending Account.The basic rule is that anything that treats or prevents a dental disease is eligible for FSA coverage. This includes teeth cleaning, fillings, sealants, crowns, bonding, dentures, tooth extraction, inlays, onlays and all diagnostic and preventative services. Treatments for gingivitis, temporomandibular joint syndrome and disorder, gum recession and oral surgery are also covered. Some FSAs can also be used to pay for orthodontia.*
Putting off dental visits may make you pay in ways you didn’t realize.
According to the American Dental Association, 23% of adults feel embarrassment due to the condition of their mouth and teeth. 1 in 5 adults experience anxiety due to the condition of their mouth and teeth. 1 in 4 adults avoid smiling due to the condition of their mouth and teeth.
