Did you know your dental benefits reset every year? If your dental insurance plan is on a calendar year, you will lose out on all unused benefits after December 31st.
That means this is a great time of year to take advantage of everything your dental insurance provides, especially if you have outstanding treatments. Here are just a few of the services you want to use before you lose the opportunity.
Many dental insurance plans provide coverage for two checkups a year at six-month intervals. So, if you haven’t had a cleaning in the last six months, now is the time to schedule an appointment!
If you need more extensive dental treatments involving multiple visits, the end of the year is the perfect time to get started. This is especially true if you’ve already met your deductible and haven’t hit your annual maximum. Once your deductible is paid, your out-of-pocket expenses can decrease, making it an ideal situation for larger dental treatments.
If you’re getting close to your annual maximum, we can help create a plan to maximize your benefits by splitting your treatment between this year and next, allowing you to use the benefits you have remaining this year and take advantage of your renewed benefits after the new year.
This approach can help minimize out-of-pocket expenses by using your coverage in an optimal way.
Don’t let your dental benefits go to waste! Make sure you use them before December 31. Schedule an appointment today!
