During the mad rush of the holiday season, it’s easy to slack off on getting the dental treatment you need. If you can squeeze in the appointment however, now is the best time to get caught up on all those smile projects!
Marconi Dental Group experts recommend using up remaining dental insurance benefits now rather than letting them go to waste.
Who Really Benefits
Think about it – who’s paying for those dental benefits?
That’s right; it’s all coming out of your paycheck. Any benefits you don’t use only go towards fattening the wallet of your insurance company. Many insurance companies bank on the fact that a lot of their policy holders will forget about all the benefits they never use . . . but are still paying for.
Know your benefits and use them!
Met Your Deductible?
Most insurances require the policy holder to pay a certain amount out of pocket before they’ll cover any treatment. This yearly amount is the deductible. Once you pay it, you should be good for the year.
Why wait until next year for treatment when you’ll only have to pay that deductible all over again?
Need a Lot Done at Once?
You could benefit from carefully timing your procedures.
Here’s a very hypothetical example: Let’s say you need a dental implant and a bridge. Plan to use up your benefits in getting that implant placed at the end of the year. In the following year, once your insurance resets, you can schedule the placement of the crown and bridge right at the time your implant is ready to receive it.
Using Benefits When You Don’t Need Treatment
Even if you don’t think you have any dental concerns, you should still make the most of the benefits you have left. You can never be too thorough when it comes to checking for cavities, infections, and oral cancer. Basic and preventative benefits will cover things like:
Don’t wait until there’s a problem to maximize your benefits!
As a matter of fact, it’s safe to say that you always save money the sooner you care for your oral health. Postponing treatment and delaying or skipping exams is a sure-fire way to welcome costly and inconvenient dental issues. Treating it early usually means less out of pocket costs or insurance coverage being spent.
Wouldn’t it be a great feeling to start the new year with peace of mind, knowing your mouth is healthy and problem-free?
