Dental Insurance Benefits: Use it or Lose it! | Warner Lakes Dental
We’re all looking forward to the end of 2021, but before we ring in 2022, let’s make sure your dental insurance benefits are fully used up.
Have you had your teeth checked or cleaned in the last 6 months?
Do you have any treatment that needs to be completed?
If you have dental insurance, almost all benefits expire at the end of the year. Don’t let your benefits go to waste! You must “Use it or Lose it.”
Now is a good time to take good care of your oral health.
Reasons To Use Your Dental Benefits Now!
Dental insurance plans have an annual maximum they are willing to pay within a calendar year. If you need any restorative treatments, it makes sense to take advantage of these unused benefits since they don’t roll over into the following year.
The deductible is the amount of out-of-pocket expenses you pay your dentist before your insurance company pays for any services. As soon as 2022 arrives, your plan requires you to meet that deductible all over again.
Through your insurance provider, you’re currently paying dental insurance premiums every month; therefore, you should be using your benefits. You should have regular dental cleanings and check-ups looking for early signs of gum disease, cavities, gum recession and even oral cancer.
Another reason to use your dental benefits before the year ends is possible fee increases. Most of these fees increases occur at the beginning of the year.
Dental Problems Can Worsen
By delaying your dental treatment, you are risking more extensive and costly treatment. What may be just a simple cavity now could turn into a root canal problem later and maybe even lead to tooth loss.
