As 2019 comes to a close we want to help you make the best of your dental plan. If your dental insurance plan is on a calendar year, these three reasons will show you why you should make a dental appointment now.
1. Yearly Maximum Benefit?
The yearly maximum is the most money that the dental insurance plan will pay for your dental work within one full year. If you haven’t used all of your benefits, it will not roll over to next year. If you have unused benefits, these will not roll over, so you should utilize all of the benefits while they are still active.
2. New Year = New Deductible?
The deductible is the amount of money that you must pay to your dentist out of pocket before your insurance company will pay for any services. If you’ve already paid your deductible for this year, any additional dental work done before the end of the year won’t require a new deductible payment.
3. Take Care of Small Problems Before They Get Bigger❕
By delaying dental treatment, you are risking more extensive and expensive treatment down the road. Very often, when dental issues are ignored and left to develop, they end up becoming much worse than whatever the original issue was. Use your dental benefits to stay ahead of dental problems and have a healthy and happy smile for the holidays.
As many patients rush to use up their benefits before the end of the year, appointment slots will fill up quickly. If you wait too long, you may not be able to get the appointment time you want.
