Can you believe that there is only a few weeks left in 2017?! This year has really flown by. We wanted to take a minute to remind you that dental insurance benefits do not roll over. This means that the annual benefit you receive from your insurance company must be used before 12/31/17 or you will lose the money. This money, known as your annual benefit, is what you get in exchange for the monthly premium you pay for your insurance. It is also the total amount each year that your dental insurance will ever give you. Essentially, you are paying for something that you will not be able to use after the end of this month.
What does my insurance cover?
Not only should you be seeing your dentist every 3-6 months to maintain optimal health and to prevent more severe and expensive dental conditions, but also because it could cost you absolutely nothing to do so! Most basic dental insurances cover at least one to two dental exams and cleanings per year at 100%, meaning no cost to you.
Other necessary treatment is often covered at a percent of the total cost. That’s where we can help! We can help you determine what treatment, if any, you might need, and also how much your insurance will pay on your behalf. Keep in mind that once you develop a dental condition, the chances that the condition will resolve on its own or become less painful are highly unlikely. This is why preventative visits are so important.
We are in-network with almost all PPO dental insurances and can help you determine if you have any remaining benefit you can use before you lose it. Just call (714) 424-9099 for a free complimentary breakdown of insurance benefits today. Have your insurance company name, the subscriber’s name, the subscriber’s date of birth, and either the member ID or SSN handy when you call. We will request all of the necessary information from your insurance company and can let you know how much money you have left and what it can be used on.
