Dental Insurance Benefits: Use it or Lose it! | Dentists on Vincent
The end of the year is drawing closer and closer. While we know you have shopping, parties and other holiday obligations on your calendar during the last 2 months of 2021, don’t forget to leave some time to check on your remaining dental insurance benefits.
If you have dental insurance, you will likely have two covered visits per calendar year (or every 6 months).
If you haven’t visited the dentist twice in 2021, take advantage of your dental insurance benefits and schedule that appointment today!
Reasons To Use Your Dental Benefits Now!
Yearly Maximum. This is the maximum amount that the dental insurance plan will pay for your dental work within the year. If you have unused benefits by the end of the year, they will not roll over to the following year. You will lose them as soon as that calendar page flips.
Deductible. The deductible is the amount of out of pocket money you must pay to your dentist before your insurance provider pays for any services. As soon as 2022 arrives, your plan requires you to meet that deductible again.
Premiums. If you pay your dental insurance premiums by the month, you should also be using your benefits. Even if you have healthy teeth and don’t require treatment at this time, your regular cleanings and exams are usually covered at 100 per cent.
Fee Increases. Another reason to take advantage of your dental benefits before the year ends is the possible fee increase. Most of these increases occur at the start of every year.
Dental Problems Can Worsen. By delaying dental treatment now, you risk more extensive and expensive treatment. What may be a simple cavity now could turn into a root canal problem later and maybe even lead to tooth loss.
Have you maximised your family dental insurance benefits this year? It’s not too late!
