Use It Or Lose It: Why It is Important to Utilize the Best Out of Your Insurance Before the End of the Year

Use It Or Lose It: Why It is Important to Utilize the Best Out of Your Insurance Before the End of the Year

A survey by Delta Dental of Illinois 2018 Adult Oral Health Survey says that adults with dental benefits are 58 percent more likely to visit their dentist than those without the dental benefits a minimum of once a year, leading to better oral and dental health. However, do you know that these dental insurance benefits run out at the end of every year? So, if you do not want to waste your money, it is important to use your dental benefits before the year ends. 

At All Smile Dental, we would like to remind everyone to use their current year's benefits before December 31 as the unused benefits will not be passed on to the next year.

In this blog, let's discuss how to reap the maximum benefits of your insurance; read on:

  • Reap Maximum Benefits Out Of Your Insurance Coverage 

As most of us already know, a dental insurance plan typically offers about $1,000 to $1,500 as the yearly maximum per insured person. If this amount is not used before a year ends, it will expire. So, it is important that you utilize any pending amount before December 31. 

  • Avail Preventative Services

For those who have any amount pending to use, you can set your appointment with your All Smile Dental's general dentist for your biannual dental checkups if it is pending. Preventive services like dental checkups, cleanings, and x-rays are typically fully covered by dental insurance. 

  • Give Attention To Smaller Problems In Its Initial Stages To Avoid Out-of-pocket Expenses In The Future.

As we know, a minor dental issue, if left untreated for long, can cause serious dental concerns in the future, leading to the requirement for complex dental treatments that may go above the insurance coverage. So, get even your smaller dental issues treated and avoid any complex dental ailments in the future.

  • Book Your Appointment With The California Dentist As Soon As Possible 

Since most people have the habit of pushing everything till the end, there are chances that you might not get a dental appointment during the year-end due to the last-minute rush of patients trying to get their dental insurance benefits. So, you might end up losing your money if you wait for long. Be proactive and schedule your appointment with your Californian dentist as soon as possible.
