Don’t Forget! Use Your Health Insurance Benefits Up Before the End of the Calendar Year

November 27,2017

There are usually many terms and conditions associated with health insurance benefits. People often gloss over these and fail to realise that they can expire or run out after a certain amount of time. For example, most health insurance extra limits tend to reset each year on December 31st, which means that any outstanding value will be lost.

This blog post contains additional information about using your dental health insurance benefits up before the end of the calendar year.

General Procedures

Health insurance extras often cover various dental treatments and procedures. This means that you can get your teeth and oral health evaluated at relatively minimal cost. For this reason, you should consider making use of your dental benefits during the holiday period before they reset to ensure you get maximum value from your health insurance. Whether you need a general check-up or you have a problem that needs tending to, using your dental benefits before they reset provides an excellent opportunity to improve your oral health and get the best value for your money.

Extensive Procedures

While benefits do reset at the end of a calendar year, this can be beneficial for patients who need extensive dentistry work that comprises of multiple procedures. A patient can get half of the work done at the end of the year, using up the current year’s benefits. They can then return in January to undergo further procedures using the new year’s benefits, helping to reduce the out of pocket amount they have to pay.
