How to Use Your Dental Insurance to the Fullest
Use your dental insurance before the end of the year, otherwise you are missing out on many benefits!
We want to let our patients know how important it is to make sure you use your dental benefits before the end of the year. Most dental insurance plans run on a calendar year.
Here are several reasons why you should schedule an appointment by the end of the year:
1. Get all you can out of your yearly maximum
Most insurers give you a certain amount of money each year, if you don't use it all, you lose it.
2. Use your Deductible
The deductible is the amount you have to pay out of pocket before your insurance company starts to pay. This fee varies but it starts again at the beginning of each year. You will want to make sure you get everything you can out of this before the new year starts over.
3. Dental Treatments Matter
Don't delay important dental treatments because of money. Dental problems tend to worsen (and become more expensive) the longer they go untreated. We see many patients with significant problems that would have otherwise been minimal if they had come in earlier.
If you have any questions about insurance, please do not hesitate to call!
