If you have been with us long, you know that we feel extremely passionate about ensuring all of our patients receive the exceptional, high quality dental care they deserve. As a result, we offer a variety of financing solutions to make this possible. On the list of methods for accessing care is our acceptance of dental insurance. If you have insurance, you are familiar with the way your coverage works. However, you may not be completely aware of what happens as the year comes to a close. Allow us to offer some tips.
Tip #1: Remember That Benefits End With the End of the Year
Yes, you read that right. As 2015 ends, so do your dental insurance benefits for 2015. This simply means that any coverage you are currently expecting for this year will not be something you can take advantage of next year. When 2016 arrives, your benefits change or start over.
Tip #2: Contact Your Provider
Now that you are aware that you might have some appointments to hastily schedule before the end of the year, we suggest you contact your dental insurance provider if you are unsure about your benefits. Because there are so many plans and carriers, it is important that you speak with your provider about your particular details of coverage for the definitive answers you need.
Tip #3: Make Use Of Those Benefits
If you have dental care needs that you can fit in within the final couple months of the year, do so to make the most the coverage you’ve been paying to receive. Simply give us a call and schedule whatever it is you need, whether a preventive visit or treatment, and we will do our best to find a date and time that work for you.
