Check out our insurance plans and make sure you don’t miss your appointment before the end of the year. We know it’s the busiest time of the year. However, among the insurances you have before the end of the year, dental insurance is mandatory. This is because, for most dental insurance, the deadline for benefits is December 31. Please check your insurance plan and pack it before the end of the year.

As mentioned earlier, you should check and execute the maximum out of pocket and deductible in your insurance plan.

Your insurance deductible is how much you have to pay out of pocket before your insurance company will pay for any covered care. Once you meet your deductible, your insurance company will pay a percentage (or all, depending on your plan) of specific care and treatments through the end of the year. At the beginning of the next year, the deductible resets.

If you’ve already met your deductible and you’re due for a cleaning or you have a filling to take care of, make sure you do it now while your insurance company will pay for a portion of it. 

Typically, you will lose money if you don’t use the money in your account before December 31. This is a great way to pay for some of your uninsured dental care, but make sure you use it before the end of the year. While you would like to see the coverage for insurance providers or FSA managers, it is generally available for cleaning and preventive treatments, as well as restorative dentistry such as fillings, crowns, and root canal. On the other hand, it is not a general guarantee for cosmetic dentistry for teeth whitening or beauty purposes, so it should be noted.
