Dental Insurance Benefits are Running Out Soon! Use Them Now.

Did you know you can save possibly thousands of dollars by using your dental insurance benefits before the end of the year?

Deductibles are often met, annual maximums won’t roll over, and premiums may increase. So, it’s more important than ever to use your dental insurance benefits to the maximum now.

Call and make your appointments today to get on the books before the holiday season begins and schedules get busier!

Reasons To Use Your Dental Benefits Now!

Yearly Maximum

Dental insurance plans have an annual maximum they are willing to pay within a calendar year. If you need any restorative treatments, it makes sense to take advantage of these unused benefits since they don’t roll over into the following year.

Deductibles

The deductible is the amount of out-of-pocket expenses you pay your dentist before your insurance company pays for any services. As soon as 2022 arrives, your plan requires you to meet that deductible all over again.

Premiums

Through your insurance provider, you’re currently paying dental insurance premiums every month; therefore, you should be using your benefits. You should have regular dental cleanings and check-ups looking for early signs of gum disease, cavities, gum recession and even oral cancer.

Fee Increases

Another reason to use your dental benefits before the year ends is possible fee increases. Most of these fees increases occur at the beginning of the year.

Dental Problems Can Worsen

By delaying your dental treatment, you are risking more extensive and costly treatment. What may be just a simple cavity now could turn into a root canal problem later and maybe even lead to tooth loss.

Make the Most Out of Your Dental Insurance Plan

The key to this type of coverage is to take advantage of any benefits before they expire.

Prevention is indeed better than cure both for your health and your pocketbook. Most plans typically pay 100% for preventive visits, so this may be an excellent time to schedule one if you have not had one yet.

Start thinking about using your coverage early. During a dental, talk to your dentist about your dental needs and what treatment you might need before the year ends. Schedule any upcoming appointments early so you can take care of them before the holidays.

Once you have determined your dental needs, work with your dentist and dental insurance provider to determine what is covered.
