Do you have misaligned teeth? You may have thought about getting braces, but you dislike the idea of having brackets and wires in your mouth. Invisalign in New Haven may appeal to you, but perhaps you hesitate to spend money on it. If that thought process sounds familiar, we have good news for you. The end of the year is the ideal time to get started with Invisalign. In this article, we will discuss how acting right now could help you save money on your orthodontic treatment.
Dental Insurance Benefits Expire Soon
Due to the costs associated with orthodontic treatment, it is only natural to wonder, “Does dental insurance cover Invisalign?” It is difficult to provide a direct answer to that question because insurance policies can vary greatly in their approaches to orthodontics. Some of them offer once-in-a-lifetime coverage for it, and they may pay up to 50% of the cost of treatment, up to the amount of the policy’s annual maximum. If your policy covers Invisalign, it has the potential to reduce your out of pocket expenses by several hundred dollars — or perhaps $1,000 or more.
Your local dental team will be pleased to help you figure out how your insurance applies to Invisalign. If you have coverage for it, you should act quickly to begin your treatment. Most insurance policies operate on a calendar-year basis. On December 31, any unused portion of your annual maximum will expire, and you could end up losing out on hundreds of dollars’ worth of benefits.
Of course, you could use 2021’s policy for Invisalign. However, your deductible may reset on January 1, which can increase your financial obligation.
Your Dentist Wants to Help You Afford Your Treatment
Your dentist is eager to help you achieve the healthy, attractive smile you have always wanted. Many practices offer limited-time Invisalign specials to make it easier for patients to get started with their treatment. For example, you may be able to attend a complimentary consultation. You might also have the opportunity to break up the cost of your treatment into affordable monthly installments, either through an autopay arrangement or CareCredit financing.
Look Forward to an Improved Smile
The treatment timeline with Invisalign varies from patient to patient. However, on average it takes Invisalign only 12 months to produce its final results! If you act now to begin your treatment, you could have a new smile to show off when you attend your 2021 year-end festivities.
Have you been thinking about investing in Invisalign? Right now is the prime time to get started with this transformative treatment.
