It’s that time of year again. Your dental insurance benefits for 2018 almost certainly expire on January 1. It’s not too late to take full advantage of the dental insurance benefits you pay for. At HIllcrest Dental Care in Waco, TX, we’ll help you and your family use your insurance to get the maximum benefit for you and your family.
You Pay For It, Why Not Use It?
The vast majority of people pay for their dental insurance. Only a fortunate few have it paid by their employers. Since you’re paying for it, you have every right to use every last dollar of benefits for covered procedures.
Let’s be clear – dental insurance doesn’t cover everything. However, it might cover a great deal more than you think depending on your policy.
Dental cleanings and examinations are covered under almost everyone’s insurance. If you or a family member is overdue for an appointment, now is a great time to take care of that. The holiday season is filled with sweet treats, and making sure that everyone’s teeth are in tip-top shape can help avoid problems.
If you have a child whose cleaning and examination is scheduled for January, rescheduling to December may avoid time out of school next year by catching and treating any problem areas early.
Restoration repair and replacement are almost always covered. You might have a filling that’s deteriorating or a crown that has cracked or chipped. The rule is that early intervention is always faster, cheaper, and more comfortable than waiting until little problems become big problems. Call our Waco, TX office today at 254-400-2868. We’ll be happy to advise you on whether a restoration repair or replacement is covered under your policy.
Scheduled dental work done now can leave more of your next-year’s benefits available for emergencies. As long as the procedure is covered, why not get at least part of it done this year?
Let’s Get It Done
If payment for dental care is a concern, you should know that we offer zero percent financing for 24 months to qualified patients. We also work with CareCredit and Springstone that offer financing specifically for health care costs including dentistry. You’ll need to qualify for their financing just as you would with a credit card.
Speaking of credit cards, we accept Discover, American Express, Mastercard, or Visa.
There’s a way for you to afford the dental care that you and your family need. Let’s work together to make that happen.
Use Those Benefits Before They’re Gone!
Unless you have a very unusual dental insurance policy, this year’s benefits won’t roll over to next year. They’ll be gone at the stroke of midnight on New Year’s Eve. We urge you to not “leave money on the table” that you can use to improve your or your family’s dental health.
