Dental insurance benefits, deductibles, co-pays, etc. can be difficult to navigate. That’s why the team here at The Maxillofacial Surgery Center is always ready to answer questions to help you understand your options. Please allow us to make your benefits work for you!
We are reminding our patients to use their 2015 dental insurance benefits before they disappear! Most insurance plans will reset on January 1, 2016. You could save hundreds of dollars by taking advantage of your remaining benefits before the year ends!
No one wants to throw hundreds of dollars away!
These are benefits you’ve already paid for. Here are three things you need to know to maximize the benefits you’ve paid for:
- Any money you’ve already spent toward your deductible will roll back to zero on January 1, 2016. If you’ve met your deductible or are close to it, you could save money by completing treatments this year instead of next year. Call your insurance company to find out how much has been applied toward your deductible and what treatments might be covered.
- If you have a healthcare flexible spending account, you will lose any unused funds in it at the end of the year (or grace period, depending on your plan). Remember, these funds can be used for oral surgery and dental care!
- Delaying treatment could be costly. Avoiding treating a simple wisdom tooth extraction now could turn into a bigger problem later. Many patients have smaller mouths and jaws, which do not allow room for the third molars to grow in properly. If these teeth do erupt, overcrowding can occur. Your teeth will begin to shift or overlap each other. Prevent more extensive and costly treatments later by taking advantage of your benefits before the end of this year!
Please Consider as the year nears an end our 2015 schedule becomes more and more difficult to accommodate everyone. The sooner you move on this the better your chances are.
As always, if you need any assistance navigating your dental insurance benefits, we’re happy to help out. Call us now at 480-279-5949 with any questions and to book appointments for you and your family and take advantage of your benefits before they disappear forever.
