At the end of the year, families have holiday plans, travel, they’re working around kids’ schedules in and out of school. In short, the end of the year is a busy and high stress time for everyone. We don’t want to add one more thing to your to-do list, but if you haven’t already scheduled both of your preventive dental exams this year, it’s time to get in at least one before the end of your dental insurance coverage year. The majority of dental insurance providers will reset their benefits at the end of the plan year, so if you haven’t used your available dental insurance coverage, you might lose it. Keep reading to learn more about dental insurance and how visiting your trusted Tysons dentist twice a year can help you make the most of your available benefits.
How Dental Insurance Works
Each dental insurance policy represents an agreement between the patient and his or her insurer, and coverage will vary from person to person. However, no matter what insurance policy you choose, the basics will remain the same. In exchange for the payment of a monthly plan premium, you’ll receive coverage for a percentage of the costs of preventive and restorative dental services.
How to Maximize Your Annual Benefits
Most dental providers offer the most coverage for preventive care. In fact, you’ll likely receive 100% coverage for your twice a year dental exams and teeth cleanings. In order to maximize your insurance benefits, visiting us twice a year for checkups is essential. Understanding your annual coverage maximums is another important aspect of making the most of your benefits. If you’ve already had a few dental treatments this year in addition to your checkups, you may be getting close to your annual coverage maximum. Your dental team can review the current year’s remaining coverage and help you to plan ahead for treatment to make the most of available benefits without exceeding your annual maximum.
