Dental Tips: Dental Insurance – Use it or Lose it!

The end of the year is fast approaching. Before 2019 ends, your Fortitude Valley dentist at Precision Dental encourages you to make the most of your dental benefits for you to keep healthy teeth during the holiday season and a bright smile for life.

We take pride in doing everything possible so we can help you and your loved ones maximise your dental insurance.

Use your Dental Insurance Before You Lose It

A number of dental insurance plans cover a large part of the dental cost of preventative and rehabilitative procedures such as scale and clean, routine check-ups and examinations, X-rays, extractions, fillings and many others.

This enables you to improve your oral and dental wellbeing as well as the overall quality of your life. Dental insurance makes your dental care better and more affordable.

By talking to your local Fortitude Valley dentist, you’ll determine exactly what is covered for you and your family members.

It’s important to keep in mind that you will lose your dental coverage if you don’t use it. Your dental insurance provides you with a certain dollar amount of insurance every year.

On the other hand, if you don’t utilise your maximum coverage benefit, you will only lose those benefits. Unused benefits don’t roll over into the next year.

The yearly maximum typically renews each year on a calendar year basis, such as on January 1st. The benefits do not carry over to the next year and must be used by December 31st.

Therefore, if you happen to have unused benefits left for last year, they will be forfeited and lost by the first month of the current year.
