A lot of people don’t know just how much they can save when they use their dental benefits before the year-end. When your dental insurance plan runs on a traditional calendar year, you have a significant opportunity to save hundreds by using those benefits. This puts more money in your pocket, and who doesn’t love flashing a beautiful smile because of that! Here are a few reasons why now is the ideal time to make a dental appointment and use your insurance wisely.
Unused dental benefits don’t roll over
The majority of dental insurance plans will have a yearly maximum that they’ll pay. So if yours is $1200, and you’ve only used $800, then you’ve got $400 left that won’t roll over into the following year. Take advantage of those unused benefits before the year is up, and you won’t have to start January paying a deductible for dental services that your insurance company would have paid in December.
Dental fees can change yearly
Dental services can increase from 2016 to 2017 depending on a few different factors, and the reasons can range from investing in updated dental equipment to the rent on their dentistry office increasing. When a fee increase happens, it can also affect your co-pay. While you know what the co-pay and fee prices are, you should take advantage of making that appointment in 2016.
You should never put off dental needs
If you pay your premiums, then don’t put off those routine dental appointments just to wait for an emergency. Smaller problems like cavities can fester into much bigger (and more expensive) problems down the road, and there is no reason to wait until next year to take care of these needs when you can save money by resolving them right now. Even if it’s simply a cleaning and routine check on your gums and teeth, it’s worth it when the savings are there.
