Don't Let Your Insurance Benefits Be Lost!

 

It is the time of the year when our phones start to ring and people we have not seen all year want an appointment.  When you call now we can dental insurancework those things out.  The hard part comes when someone calls us the last week of December and insists on getting in and all the needed work completed before the end of the year because their insurance benefits rollover.  This person will sadly waste their insurance for 2014.  The wise person who calls in November has a much greater chance of maximizing their benefit.  I apologize in advance to those people who call us late in December that we are not able to accomodate.  Know the person who called us in November is the one who already has their appointment leaving no room for you.

One really good and completely legal trick we do this time of year is this.  When you have a large treatment plan this trick works great.  Let's say you have a $1500 insurance benefit that rolls over on January 1.  We provide half of your needed care in November/December then the second half in January/February.  This allows us to give you a large amount of dental work in a short time and maximize your insurance benefit.  You will use $1500 the last of one year and $1500 the beginning of the next year.  Consider this strategy if you need a lot of work to do.dental insurance benefits

If you know you have needed dental work to be done go ahead and give us a call.  It will save you time and money and leave more of your insurance benefit available for anything needed in 2015.  Remember, the insurance company wins everytime you leave benefits on the table when you could of or needed to use them.  All that celebrating you see on New Years Eve is mostly the insurance industry saying, "We Won, We Won!"
