Dental Benefits Expire At the End of the Year
If you have a dental insurance plan in the Allen, Fairview, McKinney, or Plano area, chances are you or your employer are paying a premium each month. And with most dental benefits, they expire at the end of December. Now is a great time to use your remaining benefits that you already paid for such as regular cleanings and or dental treatment.
Maximize Your Dental Benefits
More extensive dental treatments such as fillings, root canals, crowns, implants, dentures, and bridges can be split between this year and next year. By doing so, patients can meet their maximum for this year while taking advantage of the new benefit plan starting the following new year. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us as we can help patients minimize out-of-pocket expenses by scheduling treatments with consideration to insurance.
FSA Accounts Expire Too
Some employers offer Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) to their employees where each month you deposit a certain amount of untaxed money into this account. These funds can pay the dental treatment you may need, or cover the costs of the procedure your dental insurance may not fully cover. Depending on your plan, some plans can be used to cover professional teeth whitening, veneers, dental implants, and braces. If you don’t use your FSA funds, you lose them.
