Have You Maximized Your Flexible Spending Account? It expires on December 31st, like your Dental Insurance Benefits!
You’ve probably thought about getting the most out of your health and dental insurance benefits, but have you considered your Flexible Spending Account (FSA)? FSAs are common, and they consist of your money – it’s pre-taxed and can be used for a wide-variety of services. So, when you’re making your end of the year appointments with your dentist, remember your FSA funds are there for you to use before they expire on December 31, 2020!

Using Your FSA
If you have any services that you’ve wanted to complete at the dentist, your FSA may be a great option to cover what’s not covered by your insurance. This is extremely helpful for treatments that aren’t always fully covered by normal dental benefits. Depending on your insurance, just your two preventive treatments may be covered per year, and not much else. This is where an FSA comes in handy for any other copays, treatments, procedures, emergency procedures, etc.
Want to know what exactly your FSA can cover? Read over your policy carefully and consider consulting your HR Rep. In general, these are the items that can often be used with your FSA funds:
- TMJ treatment
- Mouth Guards for teeth grinding
- Bridges, crowns, sealants, bonding
- Fluoride treatments, cleanings
- Oral surgery (root canals, implants, etc.)
- Periodontic treatments
Remember that just like your insurance benefits, your FSA will start over after Dec. 31. It does not roll over, and it is your money, so use it as best you can! Don’t let your FSA money go to waste and spend it on your health and wellbeing. Your oral health is a great use of any remaining FSA funds.
