Why You Should Use Your Dental Insurance Before the End of the Year

Why You Should Use Your Dental Insurance Before the End of the Year

This is the time of the year when you should be thinking about your dental insurance benefits. Many plans are based on the calendar year. As a result, you can potentially save hundreds of dollars by using your benefits before the 2016 ends.

Here are the top reasons why making a dentist appointment now can help you make the best of your current dental plan:

2017 = New Deductible
If your dental plan has an annual deductible, you will have to pay it again in 2017 for future dental work.

Your Yearly Maximum Dental Benefits
Most dental plans allow a yearly maximum benefit. If you haven’t used all of your dental benefits, they won’t roll over to 2017. If you have unused benefits, you will want to use them up before the end of the year for need covered dental services.

Don’t Let Small Problems Get Bigger
As much as we would like to hope, dental problems just don’t go away. A small cavity today can become a painful toothache next week. Use your benefits to stay ahead of any potential dental problems.

Covered Dental Services
You should be taking advantage of all of your covered dental services including cancer screenings, X-rays and routine check ups and cleanings. Use the benefits you paid for and maintain excellent dental health.
