Paying for Invisalign treatment with tax-free dollars using an FSA or HSA
What is a FSA?
A flexible savings account, or FSA, is an account you may be able to use to pay for certain medical, dental, and orthodontic costs, including Invisalign clear aligners. Your FSA is managed by your employer, and you pay money into the account throughout the year, usually through a deduction from your paycheck. You may set aside up to $2,600 annually. Not all employers offer an FSA.
What is a HSA?
A health savings account, or HSA, is a special savings account designed for people with a high-deductible health insurance plan. You put money into the account and can use it to cover certain medical, dental, and orthodontic costs, including Invisalign clear aligners. You may set aside up to $3,400 for an individual or $6,750 for a family annually. To open an HSA, you must meet IRS eligibility requirements.
