2016 is quickly coming to a close, and December 31st marks the end of the plan year for most dental insurance companies and Section 125 Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA). At Jackson Creek Dental Group we want you to have the best dental care and the healthiest teeth possible while getting the most out of your dental benefits.
If you have dental insurance, your policy allows a certain dollar amount of coverage to be provided to you each year. If your maximum coverage benefit is not used during the year, you lose those benefits because unused coverage does not carry over to the next year. The good news is you can still take advantage of your dental benefits before they run out.
Most dental plans allow teeth cleanings two times per year. If you are due for a cleaning, have dental treatment pending or feel you may need treatment and you haven’t maxed out your insurance benefits for the year, we encourage you to call and schedule an appointment before the end of December.
If you participate in a Flexible Spending or Health Savings Account, these are benefits you have paid for. In most cases, money left in these accounts at the end of the year is forfeited. Make sure to use them before you lose them!
Although dental treatment is never dictated by an insurance policy, our experience has shown that careful planning can often maximize benefits. Get the most out of your dental insurance this year. Call us today at (209) 223-2712 to make sure you get an appointment before the end of the year. We look forward to hearing from you.
