Maria tells us what to do with our unused dental benefits and whether or not they can be used for the next year.
With the end of the year approaching, I should clarify that any of your unused dental benefits in any category; Basic or Major does not transfer to the following year. Many patients are with the understanding that as long as a pre-estimate has been completed and approved by the insurance company, they can do the treatment at any time and the cost transfers to the following year. This is not the case, treatment is billed on date of service and does not transfer no matter if it was pre-approved or not. So if you have treatment needing to be completed, speak to our office how to maximize what is left of your plan. For further clarification please contact Maria.
