Be Sure to Use Your 2018 Insurance Benefits

October 9, 2018

Can you believe how quickly 2018 has already gone? Before you know it, we will all be ringing in the New Year of 2019. If you have dental insurance, you may have benefits that are only good for the calendar year. This means that if you choose not to use them, you could be leaving money behind on the table. October is the perfect time of year to use up all the benefits that which you have already paid. If you have any questions about your insurance or if you just want to finance a visit on your own, please talk to your team at E-Care Dentistry in Olathe, KS.

Preventive Exams & Cleanings

Most dental insurance plans fully cover preventive dental exams and cleanings. If you have a plan with this type of coverage, you will probably not need to pay for twice-a-year checkups and cleanings. Going to the dentist at least twice a year ensures that any big issues like gum disease, tooth decay, damage, or even oral cancer can be identified early. Cleanings help to keep the buildup of problematic bacteria out of your smile. If you have not been to the dentist in the last six months, be sure to go. If you have insurance benefits that will end in 2018, you want to be sure to use your money’s worth, right?

Any Benefits That Won’t Roll Over

Some dental insurance plans have high deductibles. Even reason deductibles mean that you have to pay out of your own pocket up to a certain amount before your insurance will cover treatments. Deductibles typically start over in the new year. If you have already paid much or all of your deductible, you will want to take advantage of the coverage you have before you have a new deductible to pay in 2019. Each dental insurance plan is different, but it is typical for the plan to start fresh at the start of a new year.
