Use It or Lose It – Why you should use your dental benefits before year end

October 21st, 2014

Time flies… we are almost through 2014. The end of the year will be upon us before we know it; and with the end of the year comes the end of your yearly dental insurance benefits.  Did you know that each year insurance companies make millions of dollars off patients who forgo necessary and preventative dental care? Many individuals who are paying for dental insurance do not realize that their plans provide coverage up to a certain dollar amount annually.

Consequently, some patients are not scheduling the dental treatment they need, deserve, and have insurance to cover.  Thus, the insurance revenues allocated to pay dental claims on many patients are never used and unfortunately those dollars cannot be carried over year-to-year. The bottom line: What the patient does not use they lose.  Clearly, it pays in many ways to schedule the preventative care or other dental treatment that you need.

We want to make sure that you take full advantage of any remaining benefits your family might have. Many times you may be able to save money by completing your treatment before year’s end and avoid having to pay a new deductible next year.  We are here to help you secure the insurance coverage available to you on every dental procedure you schedule.

Give us a call today and together let’s make sure you are in excellent dental health. We look forward to seeing you again and sharing some of the many innovative means we have available to provide you with superior dental health care. If you have any questions about how much actual coverage remains on your insurance benefits, please call our office so that we can check on that for you. At the time, we can schedule you at the earliest available appointment to ensure that you take full advantage of all the insurance benefits you pay for.

Please call or email us to make an appointment before the end of the year.
