Dental care can be expensive. Insurance covers preventive care and helps reduce your out-of-pocket costs. There are many insurance plans out there, such as PPO and DHMO plans. If you aren’t sure what your plan covers, you can find the information online or call your insurance provider. Every year, your benefits reset. Many people fail to take advantage! Here’s how to make sure your benefits don’t go to waste.
Schedule Routine Cleanings & Exams Every Six Months
Pretty much all dental insurance plans cover preventive care. That means you don’t have to pay for routine cleanings and exams. To make the most of this coverage, schedule cleanings every six months. When you’re at the office, schedule the next appointment right away so you don’t forget. These regular cleanings keep you healthy and let us catch problems before they become more serious and costly to treat.
Talk to Us About Treatments That Insurance Will Help Pay For
At your exam, ask Drs. Joseph and Gabrielle Ramellini if they recommend any treatments that could benefit you. Together, we can find out if insurance covers any of these treatments and reduces your out-of-pocket costs. Depending on the details of your plan, you might be surprised at how little you have to pay.
Split Up Certain Treatments to Save Money
If you need a complex treatment that can’t wait until your benefits reset, you might be able to split it up. This way, you’ll get the first part done at the end of the year and then finish the treatment soon after when insurance benefits reset. Dividing up treatments this way reduces your out-of-pocket costs.
