Get The Most Out Of Your Dental Insurance
The signs of fall signal back-to-work and back-to-school for many of us. They should also be a cue to make a dental appointment. Although you may not realize it, your dental insurance has seasons too. More than 90% of dental plans are based on a calendar year. If you do not use the benefits you are entitled to, they are gone as of December 31st. Your benefits are not carried forward into the next year.
If you are thinking about getting some dental care sometime this year, now's the time. Many treatments can take weeks to complete once treatment options are sorted out and insurance considerations are resolved. That's why it's especially important to come in for a visit to get things on the go as soon as possible, before your 1999 dental insurance expires.
