Have You Used Your Dental Benefits?
The end of the year is fast approaching, and if you and/or your family still have treatment to be completed, there may be unused dental insurance benefits available to you.If you want to maximize your benefits please call today to schedule an appointment with Dr. Mai-Ly or Dr. Dan. Our staff will be more than happy to help you determine if you have any remaining unused benefits available.
Many dental plans run on a calendar year and you can save hundreds of dollars by using your benefits before the end of the year! Here’s 5 reasons why making an appointment now can help you make the best of your dental plan:
Try to Use Your Yearly Maximum Benefit
Most dental plans allow a yearly maximum benefit. This is often around $1,000 per insured person. If you haven’t used all of your benefit, it will not roll over to next year. So, if you need covered dental services and have unused benefits, you will want to use them up before the end of the year.
New Year = New Deductible
If your dental plan has an annual deductible, you will have to pay it again next year. 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.
Take Care of Small Problems Before They Get Bigger
Dental problems don’t go away. A small, easy-to-treat cavity today can become a painful toothache tomorrow. Use your dental benefits to stay ahead of dental problems and have a healthy and happy smile for the holidays!
If you pay premiums for your dental insurance, you should be taking advantage of all covered services including screenings, x-rays, cleanings, etc. Not only will this help you maintain excellent dental health, but you will be getting the benefits you paid for too!
Make Your Appointment Sooner Rather than Later
Waiting until the last minute could cost you money. 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. Call (916) 780-3000 today to lock in your appointment time!
