The end of the year is approaching very fast, and we want to make sure that you maximize your insurance benefits and flexible spending plans for any unfinished dental treatments. Although our diagnosis and treatment is never dictated by the insurance coverage, our experience has shown that careful planning can often maximize your benefits.
You may be like many others who have unspent dollars in flexible spending accounts. These accounts are created to set aside pre-tax dollars for medical and dental expenses. However, if these expenses are not used before the end of the year, the money is no longer available for you.
Insurance benefits will not “carry over” into the next year, so if have been putting off any dental treatment now is the best time to utilize it.
When you have paid your insurance premiums all year – you have EARNED your dental benefits. It’s easy to overlook this in your busy life, but now is the time to think for a moment and start using these benefits before the year is over and your benefits expire.
In other words, USE your benefits before you LOSE them!
Our goal for each of our patients is to help you enjoy the benefits of good oral health, to look good, to feel good, have strong healthy teeth and gums, and maintain a healthy and attractive smile throughout your life. We endeavor to plan necessary treatment to take full advantage of your insurance coverage. If you are considering treatment or are simply concerned about any aspect of your oral health, it will benefit you to schedule an appointment before the end of the year.
Call us at 973-379-9080 if you are interested in finding out if you have any remaining benefits for the year. If so, we will be happy to schedule an appointment for you.
If you do not have any recommended treatment, this may be your chance to upgrade your smile with a whitening or cleaning before the holidays. By completing your treatment before the end of the year, you will be able to maximize your insurance benefits and enjoy better dental health.
