Are You Going To Lose Your Dental Benefits?
Most dental insurance carriers follow an annual cycle, which means you may have expiring dental benefits at the end of 2016. This means any unused dental benefits will be lost for good.
Dental Benefits – Use Them or Lose Them
You’ve paid your dental premiums all year, so it’s important you take advantage of your benefits, and not let them simply go away.
Four Reasons Why You Should Use Your Benefits Before They Expire:
- Dental problems don’t get better over time
Example: Tooth decay doesn’t go away or heal itself. Putting off your dental treatments may lead to more expensive and procedures later, and sometimes it becomes a painful emergency.
- Dental procedure fees increase over time
Just as the cost of living increases, so does the cost of dental materials and equipment. Occasionally, we do raise our fees, but there will be no increase in 2016.
- Premiums have been paid
All year you’ve paid for dental benefits. If you don’t use them, you’ve paid for nothing.
- Your deductible is renewing
In most cases, deductibles renew just as insurance benefits renew. If you have any outstanding treatment on your treatment plan, you may be able to save the cost of next year’s deductible.
As the end of the year approaches, we anticipate a tight schedule, but there is still time available to accommodate you before your benefits expire. Please give Debbie a call at 440-354-0705 or schedule an appointment from our website, at www.soriadds.com.
Happy Thanksgiving to all!
