Why You Should “Use It” and not “Lose It”
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 not only your benefits but also your health!
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. You lose it all. You might as well burn it or throwing it out of your pocket!
Insurance benefits will not “carry over” into the next year, so if you have been putting off your dental treatment, now is the best time to utilize it.
Here’s the deal: 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 the 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.
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.
So come on over or give us a call. We’re here to make you smile!
