Plan Ahead or Lose Thousands of Dollars!

Posted .

How many times have you said to yourself, “It’s too busy at work to see my dentist”, or “It is getting close to the Holiday’s, I don’t have time”. Unfortunately, that approach effects your health, and could cost you thousands of dollars in unused insurance coverage. If someone offered you $1,000 to take time  to see your dentist, would you find the time? At Brooklyn Smile we have heard hundreds of times from people who haven’t used their insurance all year, and then come in late December and want to use their insurance, only to find out their benefits are lost. How can that be? Many insurance plans pay for services on completion of treatment. If you come in on December 30th for a crown, it cannot be finished that day and you lose your current years benefits. That is why it is so important to plan and make appointments in October or November of any year to properly use your benefit. It is especially imperative to come in October or early November if you want to know exactly what your insurance covers or if you need a pre-treatment approval as it may take weeks to get the insurance approval, estimate, and then a week or more to complete the treatment.
