Am I Able to Use My HSA at the Dentist?

December 31, 2018

HSAHealth savings accounts (HSA’s) are used to pay for medical expenses like prescriptions, co-pays, and contact lenses. If you are looking to maximize your account or flexible spending account (FSA) you should consider using it to pay for dental treatments!

The main difference between HSA’s and FSA’s is the duration of your funds. With an FSA, your funds expire at the end of each year. HSA funds will roll over from year to year as long as you are spending your funds on covered expenses.

What Dental Treatments Can I Use My HSA for?

HSA and FSA funds are commonly used on the following dental treatments:

  • Braces
  • Sealants
  • X-Rays
  • Dentures
  • Cavity Fillings
  • Fluoride Treatment
  • Extractions

Cosmetic treatments like teeth whitening and cosmetic surgery are not covered under these accounts. If you are unsure about whether your dental procedure is included, feel free to contact us!
