You did it. You finally got dental benefits!
What may seem like standard “adulting” procedure is actually a big deal. By getting covered, you are taking the first step to improving and maintaining good oral and overall health. Congratulations!
So what now? Make the most out of your newly acquired coverage by…
Knowing the details.
It’s one thing to have coverage, it’s another thing to know how to use it.
Make sure you’re “in the know” with all the lingo. Know your deductible amount. Figure out if your plan requires a copay. Learn if you have a waiting period. Look into what your plan does and doesn’t cover.
Knowing your financial responsibility beforehand can help you budget any extra costs.
