What is the cost for Invisalign treatment?

What should I really pay for my Invisalign treatment? Hi, I am doing invisaligns and I now have to move halfway through my treatment This was at a cost of 6000, composed of a 1500 down payment and 250 monthly payments. I still have 2000 to pay. However, since I am moving I have to terminate my program with my current dentist . I have done 9 months already and I still have 9 months to go. My orthodontist suggested that I pay the last 2000 and she will hand over the remaining trays. It will then be up to me to correctly switch them every 2 weeks and also get a new orthodontist that can do regular checks and continue the treatment. I have done some research and asked a few orthodontist friends and they have told me that the actual cost of invisaligns to the dentist may range between 1000-3000, then you have to think about general revenue and other fees such as overhead fees. I feel it is not fair for me to pay the full 6000 if my dentist will not have to provide me any services for the last 9 months of my treatment. What would be a fair price I can try to negotiate with her so she can hand over the trays before my departure. Please let me know what you think. Thank you!

Hello,
Thanks for writing in.
I read your query,I would like to inform you that price of invisalign is more that traditional braces.
It ranges between 3000$-9000$,depends on practitioner.
So i will suggest you now there is no point of negotiation because treatment has been started and you can ask for retainers after your treatment including in this cost,but you can only try.
Take Care
