A Friendly End of Year Reminder to Use Your Dental Benefits

Teeth and Money | Dental Insurance Jonesboro, AR

According to insurance statistics, over 156 million Americans have some form of dental coverage with their health insurance. This accounts for about half of all adults in this country, so there’s a good chance you and your family have coverage, which is great news! In addition, dental coverage makes needed care more accessible and affordable.

But here’s the caveat: most policies have coverage caps or a maximum amount you can spend in a given year. And if you don’t use it, you lose it. So, whether you have dental insurance or a health savings account (HSAs), you still have time to take advantage of the benefits you have left.

The Anthony Bartels DDS Family Dentistry team is highly qualified to deal with the specifics of dental insurance, and we can help you use your benefits in numerous ways.

Vital Dental Procedures May Be Completely Covered

Many people put off dental care because of their busy schedules. But that could result in more needed care, and you should know that many services are mostly or entirely covered by your policy. For example, we perform many procedures that have health implications and, therefore, solid coverage. Here are some services you may need:

In cases like a root canal, we can begin a procedure under this year’s policy and complete the work next year. This is a great way to maximize your benefits.

Health Savings Accounts Can Cover Most Things

For people with HSAs, benefits almost always expire at year’s end, so if you are interested in a more cosmetic dental treatment, like dental veneers, then this is an excellent opportunity to use that benefit for something that your dental insurance might not cover.
