Are You Wasting Your Dental Benefits?
Do you ever get a big garbage bag, fill it with money and throw it in the trash? Or maybe you take money and dump it down the drain? None of us would ever do that; however, there is a good chance that you might be letting your dental benefits go to waste, which is essentially the same as throwing money away. Most dental insurance benefits expire on December 31st, and if you don’t use them, you lose them! Continue reading to learn why you should not dump your benefits down the drain.
The holiday season is here, which means that it’s a great opportunity to spend time with family, and friends. The holiday season also signifies the end of the year. While, this year, many of us are happy to see the end of 2020, one thing you shouldn’t be happy to see is your dental benefits going to waste. Most dental insurance companies renew their benefits starting the first of the year. What does that mean for you? Basically, it means whatever money you have left in your allotted benefits that you didn’t use toward treatment will expire at the end of the year.
You don’t want all of your paid premiums and FSA funds to go to waste. We know that lives can be hectic and, before we know it, the end of the year is here. If you find yourself with remaining funds, there are two ways that you can utilize your benefits to your advantage:
- Routine Cleanings – if you have not been to our office for a cleaning in the past six months, now is a great time to schedule an appointment. Routine cleanings are a great way for our staff to review your oral health and ensure that no problems are developing with your teeth and gums.
- Major Treatments – taking care of a known problem is a perfect solution to utilize remaining premium funds. Delaying a treatment does not help the problem get better and can lead to further expense and challenges.
Don’t worry, it’s not too late to use your benefits before they’re gone for good! Call our location in Phoenix, AZ to schedule an appointment and we’ll make sure you get this year’s maximum benefits. We want to help you have a smile that’s beautiful and bright for the holiday season.
