Maximize the use of your dental insurance plan benefits before the end of the year

It’s true. Dental insurance benefits can be challenging to understand and navigate. With terms like co-pays, deductibles, limits, etc., you might be sitting there wondering, “What does it all mean? All I want to do is maximize my benefits? Am I missing out on important coverage for myself or a family member?”

Did you know?

Most dental insurance benefits do not roll over from year to year. The age-old saying if you don’t use you’ll lose it rings true in this case.

What can you do?

Don’t throw your money away and miss out on valuable dental care.

You’ve already paid for these dental benefits; make sure you use them! The Belmar Park Dental Care team can help you navigate the mysterious world of dental insurance and get maximum use from your plan.

Here are three tips to keep in mind:

  1. Prevention, prevention, prevention: It is important to keep your oral health on track! Preventative dentistry appointments, including oral exams and dental cleanings, are typically fully covered by insurance.

    Have you visited your Lakewood dentist twice this year for your regular cleanings yet? If not, call us today to reserve your appointment before the end of the year. It is important to schedule your and your family members’ cleanings now before our schedules fill up.

    Remember: These are your PAID benefits. Please don’t throw them away!

  2. Deductibles: Any money you’ve already spent toward your deductible will reset to $0 as of January 1st. Call your insurance provider to determine the amount you’ve spent so far this calendar year toward your deductible, and at the same time, ask them if any treatments you’re considering are covered.

    If you’ve already met or are close to meeting your deductible for this year, you could actually save money by completing a treatment now instead of waiting for January and a new year to start.

  3. Procrastination doesn’t pay: Putting off or even avoiding treatments now could end up being much more costly later. We can help you prevent severe and expensive treatments by using your dental insurance NOW before the year ends.

    Don’t let your dental insurance dollars go to waste.

The clock is ticking! 2022 will be here before we know it. For assistance with making the best use of your dental insurance benefits, feel free to review the following steps:

Call your insurance provider and familiarize yourself with a.) the benefits you’ve already utilized, b.) what’s covered in your plan, and c.) if any existing benefits will be reduced next year.
