Make sure you use your remaining dental insurance benefits for the year. It is easy to forget that you have a remaining balance left on your dental insurance. You need to use these for treatment before the end of 2014, or your dental benefits will expire and you’ll lose them. On most every plan, the yearly maximum renews every year on January 1st. In the new year, you will need to meet the deductible again. Also, if you participate in a Flexible Spending or Health Savings Account, and you don’t use those before the end of the year, you will forfeit any left-over money in these account. Don’t spend all year paying for benefits that you don’t use.
It’s a good idea to either call your dental insurance provider or log into your account on their website to determine the exact amount that you have left. Most dental insurance covers preventive care: cleanings, exams, protective dental sealants, x-rays, and fluoride treatment at 80-100%. so if you’re due for these, call us soon to get on the schedule, as we are already scheduling these appointments several weeks out. October through January are usually some of the busiest months for dentists and Sage Dental Care is no exception.
Things like root canal therapy, extractions, and fillings are usually covered at 80%. Bigger ticket items, such as crowns (caps), permanent bridgework, and full and partial dentures as well as periodontal (gum) care are often covered at 50%. If the last time you came in to see us, we told you that you needed one of these treatments, come on in and use any remaining benefits to get them completed.
Now is a great time to finish your family’s dentistry before the busy holiday season starts. Also, making sure everyone’s dental needs are addressed now could spare your family the hassle of a dental emergency during the holidays.
