The end of the year is coming up quickly, which means now is the time to start scheduling preventive and restorative dental care at Lakewood Smiles Dentistry. By scheduling your appointments now, you can get the most out of your yearly dental benefits.
Why should you make sure you get treatment before the end of the year? Because this is the best way to get the most from your dental insurance plan.
Most dental insurance plans have a deductible of between $250-$500. Once you’ve paid this deductible out-of-pocket, your remaining treatments are covered by your insurance plan until you reach your yearly maximum, which is usually around $1,000-$1,500.
However, this resets on January 1st. As soon as the new year begins, your deductible will roll over, and you’ll have to meet it again before your insurance plan pays for treatment.
But if you get all of your dental treatments by the end of the year, you can make sure you meet your yearly maximum, meaning you’ll get the most out of your dental insurance policy!
Wondering what treatments are usually covered by dental insurance? Here are some of the most common procedures that you can expect your insurer to pay for.
For the most part, all dental insurance plans will cover restorative and preventive treatments, like those listed above. Cosmetic treatments, like dental bonding, are usually not covered by insurance.
Note: Your coverage will vary. Make sure you understand your policy and confirm coverage with your insurer before seeking treatment.
By getting treatment from Dr. William before the end of the year, you can make the most of your dental benefits and keep your smile healthy throughout the winter holidays.
