The end of the year is fast approaching and just as quickly as the days are flying off the calendar, your insurance benefits could be going up in smoke.
So, ‘tis the season to use it or lose it. With most insurance plans, paid for benefits do not carry over from year to year. Not to mention, it would be best to have a dental checkup before the holidays get into full swing.
Typically, with all insurance policies the fees associated with them will rise each year. By taking advantage of your locked-in fee for this calendar year, you will end up saving yourself some money this holiday season.
Additionally, due to the fact that the year is coming to a close, odds are you have substantially paid down your insurance deductible. By paying for treatment this year, it will be much cheaper than waiting for the new year to start by having to pay down a fresh deductible.
Additionally, if your insurance policy operates on paid monthly premiums, why not take advantage of something you’ve already paid for by having some preventative care done or finish a procedure that’s been in the works for too long? It just makes sense to set aside a few hours of your day and use what you’ve already paid for.
In the long run it will save you time by preventing further issues, save you money because your deductible will be lower, and potentially save you some serious physical agony in the year ahead.
