Expiring Dental Benefits – Use Them or Lose Them
It’s important that you take advantage of your expiring dental benefits because you’ve paid your dental premiums all year. For most dental plans, unused benefits simply go away if not used by the patient. Don’t let that happen to you! Most insurance companies provide policies that expire on December 31st of each year, so your unused benefits may be lost for good.
Four Reasons Why You Should Use Your Benefits Before They Expire:
1) Dental problems don’t get better over time
Remember, tooth decay doesn’t go away. It’s best to undergo treatment when minor concerns are identified. Putting off your dental care may lead to more expensive procedures later.
2) You’ve already paid your premiums
All year you’ve paid for dental benefits. If you don’t use them, you’re wasting a valuable resource.
3) Your deductible is renewing
Deductibles renew annually just as insurance benefits renew. If you have any outstanding treatment on your treatment plan, you may be able to save
the cost of next year’s deductible.
4) Dental procedure fees increase over time
Just as the cost of living increases, so does the cost of providing excellent care. On occasion, our fees need to be adjusted.
