It’s that time of year again! Time to start thinking about using up your dental benefits before they reset at the end of the year! At McDowell Dental Group, we want to help you make the most of the dental benefits you pay for. This means being diligent about getting routine dental work done and making sure you are using the services you are entitled to when you are entitled to them.
How do I make the most of my dental insurance benefits?
Below are a few things to keep in mind when considering an appointment with our team to use the dental benefits you have available:
- Use your funds that do not roll over to the following year. If you have a flexible spending account (FSA), remember that you can use it for dental expenses. FSA funds don’t roll over, so if you don’t use them, you’ll lose them.
- Get preventative care treatments as directed. If you have a dental insurance plan, now is a great time to get any preventive care or treatments done that you may have been putting off. Most insurance plans have a calendar year deductible, which means that any treatments done now will likely be covered at a higher percentage than if you wait until next year.
- Use your discount dental plans before they reset. And finally, if you have a dental discount plan, remember to use it! Discount plans don’t reset at the end of the year, but you may find that some of the participating providers change. So if there’s a treatment or procedure you’ve wanted to get done, now is the time to do it.
- Avoid dental problems that may worsen with time. The best way to maintain a healthy smile is to proactively care for your smile and make use of your preventative treatments, including examinations, x-rays, and dental cleanings.
