Time is Running Out: Use your Insurance Benefits, FSA and MSA!

Most of us know what it’s like to encounter an urgent dental matter when we’re low on funds. Some wait until they can save up the money, while others may never have it addressed because they can’t afford to pay out of pocket. However, there is a solution you may be forgetting about—your Medical Savings Account or Flex Spending Account! You may also have yearly Dental Insurance benefits or unused Dental Insurance benefits.  Prolonging dental procedures can be detrimental to your oral and overall health. Don’t wait until the last minute—trust Heflin Family Dentistry in Albuquerque and take advantage of your health savings accounts before they expire at the end of the year! 

Do you have unused dollars in your Flex Savings Account or Medical Savings Account that you need to use by a certain date? If you have chipped teeth or need fillings or crowns but haven’t gotten around to fixing them, now is the perfect time to do so and have your insurance FSA or MSA pay for it! Put that money to work and get the beautiful, healthy smile you’ve been wanting all year with your favorite local dentist—Doctor Tom Heflin! 

What are FSA and MSA?

FSAs (Flex Spending Accounts) and MSAs (Medical Savings Accounts) are savings accounts that help you pay for medical expenses, such as dental check-ups and some dental procedures. FSAs are given by your employer for you to set aside money to pay for out-of-pocket health care costs, whereas MSAs help you save and pay for medical expenses at a later time. Both allow you to set aside money on a pre-tax basis to pay for certain qualifying medical procedures.

Typically, these types of savings and spending accounts can help you save a lot of money on dental procedures and treatments such as:

  • Cleanings
  • Bondings
  • Crowns 
  • Extractions
  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Fillings
  • Preventive oral care
  • Treatments 
  • Surgeries

By taking advantage of these accounts, you can restore your teeth and have an even brighter, healthier smile with no out-of-pocket spending! You can trust our team to handle all of your insurance and savings paperwork so that you have an easy, hassle-free experience!
