Dental Benefits: Use Them or Lose Them

Don’t miss out on the dental treatment you need, deserve and have the benefits to cover! Unfortunately, many dental benefits dollars will not roll over into the next year, leading to a significant waste of your valuable benefits payments. Bottom line: what you don’t use of your remaining dental benefits, you may lose!

Unlike medical insurance, dental benefits and plans provide you with an allotted amount of money to spend on your care each year. If you have anything extra left over, it may disappear at the end of the calendar or fiscal year, depending on your plan. Schedule an appointment today to take full advantage of what your dental benefits will cover this year so that next year’s benefits can be used for any unexpected treatment needs that may arise. For most plans, as of January 1, 2022, you will again be required to pay 100% of your annual insurance deductible before any dental benefits are paid by your insurance company. For those policyholders, now is the perfect time to achieve the smile you’ve always dreamed of and take full advantage of your dental benefits. However, some plans operate based on a 12-month fiscal year that may not align with the calendar year. For example, the federal government’s fiscal period begins October 1 and ends September 30, but this period varies between different companies and organizations. If you have any questions about your plan, please contact our office and we will be happy to assist you.
