Captivate Dental Tips: Top 4 Reasons to Use Your Dental Insurance Now
Do you have dental insurance that you have yet to use this year?
As the end of the year approaches, many of us enjoy holiday gatherings and the hope of the New Year.
But this festive season is also the time to think about the medical and dental insurance benefits that you may lose after December 31st because once they expire, you’ll never get them back – they become lost money.
In the same way that we strive to maximise tax deductions for the year, we also should take advantage of dental insurance benefits.
Once they’re gone, you can’t claim them again!
Captivate Dental has a no-gap promotion that includes an initial examination, clean, fluoride treatment and 2x X-rays (for all private health insurance) for new patients.
Here are some reasons to use your dental insurance before the year changes:
1. Yearly Maximum
The yearly maximum is the greatest amount of money that a dental insurance plan will pay for your dental work within one full year. This amount varies by the insurance company.
The yearly maximum usually renews every year (every January 1st if your plan is based on a calendar year). If you have unused dental benefits, they do not roll over to the next year.
If you are paying premium dental insurance every month, you should be using your benefits.
Even if you don’t need any treatment, you should always have your regular dental scale and clean to help prevent and detect any early signs of cavities, gum disease, oral cancer, or other dental issues.
3. Fee Increases
Another reason to use your benefits before the year ends is possible fee increases. Some dentists increase their rates at the start of the year due to the increased cost of living, materials, and equipment. These fee increases can make your expenses higher.
4. Dental Problems Can Worsen
Delaying dental treatment exposes you to more extensive and costly treatment in the future.
