Dental Insurance Benefits: Use it or Lose it! | Forster Dental Centre
Every year, thousands of patients waste their dental insurance benefits by not using them before the year ends. Don’t let that happen to you!
If you have dental insurance, time could be running out this year to take advantage of your remaining benefits.
Why not take advantage of all the insurance benefits you are paying for? The yearly maximum usually renews every year. If you have unused dental benefits, these will not rollover.
Reasons To Use Your Dental Benefits Now!
Yearly Maximum. This is the maximum amount that the dental insurance plan will pay for your dental work within the year. If you have unused benefits at the end of the year, they will not roll over to the following year. You will lose them as soon as that calendar page flips.
Deductible. The deductible is the amount of out-of-pocket money you must pay to your dentist before your insurance provider pays for any services. As soon as 2022 arrives, your plan requires you to meet that deductible again.
Premiums. If you are paying your dental insurance premiums by the month, you should also use your benefits. Even if you have healthy teeth and don’t require treatment at this time, your regular cleanings and exams are usually covered at 100 per cent.
Fee Increases. Another reason to take advantage of your dental benefits before the year ends is the possible fee increase. Most of these increases occur at the start of every year.
Dental Problems Can Worsen. By delaying dental treatment now, you risk more extensive and expensive treatment. What may be a simple cavity now could turn into a root canal problem later and maybe even lead to tooth loss.
