End of the Year Dental Benefits- Use It or Lose It!

End of the Year Dental Benefits- Use It or Lose It!

Posted by Ken Caryl Dentistry on Nov 23 2020, 12:37 AM

With 2020 coming to an end, so is your dental insurance. Do you know that dental benefits reset at the end of every year? This means that if you don’t use all your unused dental benefits before December 31st, 2020, you are just going to lose them!

Here we are going to see some amazing tips to get the most out of dental insurance benefits before it’s too late:

Schedule your Routine Visit  

Plan and book your dental appointments as per your (and family member’s) convenience in advance so that you won’t miss one or get canceled. During the consultation, ask the dentist about your dental treatment needs. This will give you an idea of whether the treatment is something that can be covered in the insurance or not.

Make the Most of your Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA)

Consult both your dentist and FSA administrator to understand which all dental treatments will be covered under the scheme and plan according to that. This way, you can avoid putting too much money into the FSA account.

Go For Preventive Visits

Usually, preventive visits are fully covered by dental insurance. This way, you can maintain your oral health, eliminating the chances of serious oral diseases that could cost you a lot of money, that too, with no insurance coverage. So, book for a preventive visit.

Maximize Your Dental Benefits

Try to get the most of your dental insurance. One way to do that is to split your treatment procedures between this year and the next year in such a way that you will be able to meet the maximum benefits by the end of this year. 

For example, if you consider undergoing a dental implant procedure, then a complex and costlier initial placement of the implant can be done before the year-end, and the rest of the process will be covered by the benefit of the new dental insurance starting next year.
