Flexible Spending Accounts
Your Flexible Spending Account (FSA) provides you with a way to use tax-free dollars to pay for dental expenses not covered by your insurance plan. Under the IRS's Use or Lose provision, you must incur these expenses by December 31, 2016 or you *forfeit your balance. You know the scenario, we get so busy and before we know it, it's the end of the year. We forgot about our FSA, we never got to the dentist for that service or treatment we needed, our FSA remains unused and all that hard earned money goes to waste! Don't do that to yourself or your family. Make an appointment for dental care now and use up your FSA.
You can use your FSA to pay for expenses not covered by your insurance plan, including co-pays, deductibles, prescriptions and other dental services and products. You can include expenses for the prevention and alleviation of dental disease. Preventive treatment includes the services of a dentist or a dental hygienist for procedures such as teeth cleaning, the application of sealants, and fluoride treatments. Alleviation of dental disease includes services of a dentist for procedures such as X-rays, fillings, braces, extractions, dentures, and other dental ailments. Whitening cannot be included.
Who else can you use FSA for?
Apart from yourself, you can also include dental expenses for your spouse or your dependents. For you to include such expenses the individual must have been your spouse or dependent at the time dental services were provided or at the time you paid for their expenses.
U$E IT or LO$E IT!
Avoid the year-end rush and use your FSA. Make an appointment to see Dr. Kingsley Achikeh, DDS, Dr. Francoise Engel, DDS or Miriam Johnson, RDH now. We really look forward to taking care of your teeth and putting a healthy and beautiful smile on your face. Call the office on (301) 585 1515.
