Use It Or Lose It: Dental Insurance Benefits

August 23, 2017

The average person in Michigan loses $1,100 every year because they wait until November to try to get in to see the dentist. The problem is that EVERYONE waits until the end of the year to be seen because of the crush of the Holidays. 

According to Forbes Magazine, 97% of dental patients do not use all of their dental benefits by the end of the year. Many dental insurance plans have unused benefits ready to go to waste as soon as the clock strikes midnight on December 31. In fact, dental insurance companies count on making millions of dollars off of patients who never use their insurance benefits; many of these plans provide coverage up to a certain dollar amount annually, usually $1500-$2000! 

Insurance companies certainly aren’t going to alert customers of remaining benefits, and most patients are too busy to study how much remains on their policies.
