Did you know that you could actually save hundreds of dollars by using your dental benefits before the end of the year? While some dental insurance plans run on a fiscal year, or rolling year, most run on a calendar year.
Here are 4 reasons why you should make a dental appointment now.
- Yearly Maximum
The yearly maximum is the most money that the dental insurance plan will pay for your dental work within one full year. This amount varies by insurance company, but what you do not use you cannot roll over. If you do not use it, you lose it!
If you are paying your dental insurance premiums every month, you should be using your benefits. You should always have your regular dental cleanings to help prevent and detect any early signs of cavities, gum disease, oral cancer and other dental problems.
- Fee Increases
Another reason to use your benefits before the end of the year are possible fee increases, which is set by The Royal College of Dental Surgeons.
- Dental Problems Can Worsen
By delaying dental treatment, you are risking more extensive and expensive treatment down the road. What may be a simply filling needed now, could turn into a root canal later. So book your appointments now!
