Make the Most of Your Dental Benefits!

Learn how to maximize your dental plan benefits

The end of the year is an incredibly busy time for most people, so scheduling appointments ahead of time is essential to ensure you and your family receive the care you need in the coming months. Just as importantly, you should think ahead to make the most of your dental benefits for the year.

Whether you have a flexible spending account (FSA) or you rely on your dental insurance plan, you should be sure to use your dental plan benefits before the end of 2023.

Spend the Rest of Your FSA

If you have an FSA, a certain amount of money is taken out of your paycheck and set aside for health care costs, like orthodontics. Most FSA accounts are “use it or lose it,” so you should be sure to use your FSA funds during the plan year. FSAs can typically be used for any of the following for yourself and your dependents:

  • Orthodontic Treatment
  • Prescriptions
  • Office Visits
  • Dental Office Procedures

If you or someone in your family needs orthodontic work, the end of the year is an optimal time to start treatment. You’ll know how much is left in your FSA and be able to structure payments to ensure you don’t lose the money in the account.

Optimize Your Dental Benefits

As you are making your plan selections, keep in mind that many plans can save you up to $3,000 on treatment costs. The team at Adirondack Orthodontics can help you figure out a payment plan that helps you make the most of your dental benefits, whether you want to pay in full at the start or figure out a payment plan to work with your monthly budget.

Whether you’re an existing patient or it’s your first time visiting one of our six convenient New York locations, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with Adirondack Orthodontics as soon as possible. We can walk you through your options to ensure you get the most from your dental benefits in 2023.

Now is the Time to Spend Your FSA – Before It’s Too Late

Here’s a great way to get the year off on the right foot: be sure to maximize the use of your flexible spending account (FSA) before the new year starts! The last day to incur expenses with your FSA is typically the last day of the year – so if you currently have money in your FSA, you need to move quickly to ensure you put it to good use. At Adirondack Orthodontics, we can help you put those dollars to work, while also putting a plan in place to ensure affordable orthodontic treatment using your FSA.

How to Get the Most Out of Your Flexible Spending Account

If you already have an FSA, you know money in that account is set aside for medical costs within the calendar year. This money is generally provisioned on a “use it or lose it” basis, which means it doesn’t roll over to the following year and should be used in its entirety. No matter how much money you have remaining in your FSA, our team can help you make the most of it by funding an ongoing or new orthodontic treatment.

Adirondack Orthodontics is known for working with patients to ensure they receive the orthodontic solutions they need while staying within their budgets. In addition to directing your FSA toward the cost of orthodontic treatment, you can always take advantage of discounts and offers we provide to make treatment even more affordable.

Whether you’re a current patient or getting ready to begin your journey, Adirondack Orthodontics is here to make sure you realize your dream of achieving a beautiful and healthy smile. Call us today to schedule a consultation, or request an appointment through our website, and let us put you on the path to success. We’re certain you’ll Love Your Smile and Love Your Experience!

Use a Participating Provider for a Beautiful and Affordable Smile

The benefits of a participating provider

Want a smile that’s both beautiful and affordable? Your best choice is to work with a participating provider. At Adirondack Orthodontics, we are proud to be the only practice that participates with nearly every insurer in the Capital Region. But what exactly does that mean?

Reduced Out-of-Pocket Costs

Being a participating provider involves pre-negotiating fees with insurance companies and agreeing to adhere to those rates. As a result, your out-of-pocket costs are greatly reduced – depending on the plan, you may not have any – so your treatment is more affordable.

Streamlined Insurance Process

Moreover, we shoulder the burden of dealing with your insurance provider throughout the course of your treatment. From collecting payments to handling paperwork and filing claims, we handle it all. For you, that means no paperwork, no claims to file, no phone calls to make, so you can concentrate on achieving the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted.

What it’s like working with an accepting provider

There’s a huge difference from working with an accepting provider – one who accepts your insurance but does not participate with the insurer. Not only will you pay more out of pocket – since the insurance company does not cover the entire cost of service – you also have to pay up front and then wait to be reimbursed by the insurance company. And we all know how long that can take!

Choose us for affordable, convenient orthodontic treatment

At Adirondack Orthodontics, our commitment to providing caring, personalized service to our patients goes beyond the orthodontic treatment. We strive to make the entire process both affordable and stress-free, and as a participating provider, we have done just that for thousands of Capital Region families.

Call us today for a free consultation. We’d love to show you the power of working with a participating provider!

Factors Affecting the Cost of Orthodontics

Learn about our affordable orthodontic options

Traditional views of orthodontic treatment often evoke feelings of a daunting undertaking.  Bulky braces, multiple appliances, poor aesthetics and high treatment cost are the perceived norm.  However, in today’s world, this couldn’t be further from the truth.

Technological advancements have reduced the size of braces, improved the efficiency of wires, improved patient comfort, and greatly improved aesthetics.  Further breakthroughs in clear aligner treatment, such as, Invisalign, has provided an additional level of flexibility for those seeking superior aesthetics.

These positive changes to orthodontic appliances have made orthodontic treatment less invasive, allowing for fewer and shorter appointments; because of this, the cost of treatment is assessed based on the individual treatment rather than the traditional model which priced treatment to the hardest cases. With more treatment option and reduced treatment cost, there has also been a positive effect on access to orthodontic care as a whole.

Here at Adirondack Orthodontics, we pride ourselves on our ability to limit the perceived barriers to achieving the beautiful smile people want and desire.  To better serve our patients, we participate with most insurances, help our patients plan their Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA), and offer a variety of flexible payment plans.
