Dental Benefits – Use them or lose them by the end of 2019

Most dental plans feature an annual maximum of $1,000-$3,000, which resets at the end of the year, so you must start over in 2020. According to the American Dental Association, only 2.8% of people with PPO dental plans use all their benefits! Everyone else is leaving that well-spent money on the table.

If your child is due for a checkup, or your dentist has indicated that you or your child will eventually need some dental work, put those unused dental benefits to work — make that appointment now.

Deductible medical expenses may include but aren’t limited to the following:

  • Payments of fees to doctors, dentists, surgeons, chiropractors, psychiatrists, psychologists, and nontraditional medical practitioners.
  • You can include in medical expenses the amounts you pay for the prevention and alleviation of dental disease. Preventive treatment includes the services of a dental hygienist or dentist for such procedures as teeth cleaning, the application of sealants, and fluoride treatments to prevent tooth decay. Treatment to alleviate dental disease includes services of a dentist for procedures such as X-rays, fillings, braces, extractions, dentures, and other dental ailments.
