With only a few weeks left in the year, now is the best time to take a look at your dental insurance plan to check if you have any unused benefits left before the year comes to an end. At Goddard Family Dental, we want you to have the best dental care and the healthiest teeth possible while getting the most out of your benefits.
If you have dental insurance, your policy allows for a certain dollar amount of coverage to be provided to you each year. If your maximum coverage benefit is not used during the year, you lose those benefits because unused coverage does not carry over to the next year. The good news is you can still take advantage of your dental benefits before they run out.
Many dental insurance plans provide coverage for two checkups a year at six-month intervals. So, if you haven’t had a cleaning in the last six months, now is an excellent time to schedule an appointment with Goddard Family Dental. Getting regular checkups ensures your teeth and gums are in great shape, and it gives you the chance to review your oral health to make sure problems aren’t developing. Plus, you’ll get to enjoy a professionally cleaned and polished smile, which can have you leaving the office feeling like a more radiant, confident you!
If you participate in a Flexible Spending or Health Savings Account, in most cases money left in these accounts at the end of the year is forfeited. These are benefits that you have paid for! Make sure to use them before you lose them!
Although dental treatment is never dictated by an insurance policy, our experience has shown that careful planning can often help maximize your benefits. Call us today at (316) 550-6020 to make sure you get an appointment before the end of the year. We look forward to hearing from you!
