At Alrez Family Dentistry, we want to make sure you get the most out of your dental benefits so you get the best treatment possible. In order for you take advantage of all unused benefits, we’ve come up with 5 reasons you should maximize your dental benefits.
- Yearly Maximum
Your dental insurance company allots you a yearly maximum to pay for all of your dental work within the year. If you have unused benefits at the end of the year, they will not rollover. Be sure to use all of your benefits while you can.
The deductible is the amount of money you must pay out of pocket before your insurance company will begin paying for your dental work. When your plan rolls over, your deductible starts again. It may not pay off to push back dental procedures.
Even if you don’t need dental treatment, you should still schedule regular cleanings to use your benefits. You’re already paying your premium each month and these cleanings can prevent gum disease , cavities, and oral cancer.
4. Dental Health
If you delay dental treatment, your problems could worsen. By putting off your trip to the dentist, you could be risking more expensive and extensive procedures.
5. Flexible Spending
If you don’t use your flexible spending balance by the end of the year, that money is gone. Don’t let it go to waste while you’re in need of dental treatment or cleaning.
