Does Invisalign Have an Upfront Lab Fee?

I just received a quote for Invisalign. The quote for the procedure seemed reasonable. Then the orthodontist said that there is an additional $2,000 upfront "lab" fee for Invisalign to customize my fit. Does this sound correct?
Invisalign charges the lab fee up front
Invisalign Provides the Clincheck for free. So you can see the process of the treatments in advance. For the rest they have a flat fee , but your final fee depends on some other factors including duration of the aligners treatment .
Invisalign gets paid as soon as the case is submitted
The lab fee is posted to the doctors' account once a new case is submitted. This is probably why the doctor requested the payment at the beginning of treatment.
Invisalign does have a large lab fee
It is charged up front, as all the aligners are created at once. This is probably the single biggest drawback to Invisalign, as it is a flat fee and 100% due at the initial onset.
