Insurance Q&A: Let’s Talk End Of 2017

You may be surprised that it’s almost 2018. The time has flown by and just as it seemed like 2017 was getting started, we appear to be wrapping it up! So, what to do for your smile now that the year is almost up? Anything that you should be focusing on at all? As far as we are concerned, the answer is: Yes, most definitely! Take time to think about your dental insurance, care you need, and how to end the year with good oral health.

Questions and Answers

Question: I’ve recently heard that my dental insurance is probably going to end at the finish of 2017. Then, my benefits will start over in 2018. Does this sound right?

Answer: Your insurance benefits will most likely not roll over. However, it’s possible. These and other details are completely specific to the policy that you took out for yourself as the year began. If you have the literature associated with this plan, today is the day to check your coverage details!

Question: How can I find out for sure if my dental insurance coverage does or does not roll into the new year? Can I call your practice for help with these types of insurance details?

Answer: You can find out for certain not by calling us (we do not have access to these details). Instead, call the company through which you receive your dental benefits. You will be able to get in contact with customer service to receive answers to your questions.

Question: What if I have benefits left and I still need dental care? What should I do? Can I call you to make an appointment?

Answer: You should contact us right now! It is possible that, depending on your needs, we can fit you in before 2017 is through!
