Invisalign Treatment Costs? Consider Insurance!
Invisalign clear aligners offer many potential perks that could appeal to patients over traditional metal braces or ceramic braces. Unlike other orthodontic appliances, Invisalign clear aligners can be:
- Removed at your discretion (for 2 hours a day, during eating, drinking, and dental cleaning)
- Appear nearly invisible when worn
- Worn with no diet restrictions
- Less irritating than traditional braces
- Less prone to breakage as compared to braces
It’s easy to see why those things could be advantageous for patients. Unfortunately, those advantages of Invisalign clear aligners will typically come at a bit of a higher cost; if you opt for Invisalign clear aligners over traditional braces, expect to pay at least a few hundred dollars more on average.
Still, there are ways to make bearing the brunt of that cost a little easier. FSA and HSA savings accounts can help cover a portion of the costs, or here in NJ and NY, so can certain insurance plans.
But how exactly do you find out how much your insurance plan will cover Invisalign clear aligners, or whether your plan will cover any costs at all? Hopefully, this coverage guide will help you gain more insight into whether you can afford Invisalign under your state-sponsored or private network insurance plan.
