Remember Your Dental Plan Pays Better than the Tooth Fairy
2020 has been a year of distractions. So, it isn’t surprising most of us have a few dental procedures left to get done on our to-do list, yet we risk losing valuable money set aside for us in our plans as they expire at the end of the calendar year. It’s true that most insurance companies have a benefit deadline of December 31st, but with a quick phone call to our office you can check your plans’ balance and see how we can apply the remaining money into the current year so your valuable benefit isn’t wasted.
About 97% Of Us Do Not Use Our Plans’ Maximum, Leaving Money Behind
It’s hard to believe the vast majority of us have both an unused benefit amount and treatments that need to be done, yet the facts prevail. Only 2.8% of those with PPO dental plans hit their annual maximum benefit according to the National Association of Dental Plans. According to the CDC, 31% of adults have untreated tooth decay, and of course, countless others need procedures to treat dental needs like gum disease. Benefits cover both preventative care and dental treatments and vary by plan regarding the level of benefit coverage they offer for different procedures. The easiest way to know if you are part of the majority that haven’t used all of your benefits is to let us help.
