6 Tips to Maximize Your Plan in 2020

 

Dental Chair

Schedule preventive care

Most plans cover routine dental exams, cleanings and X-rays at 100%. Can’t remember when you last saw the dentist? Check your MyDentalBenefits account to see when you’re due for an appointment.

 

Use an in-network dentist

Remember, you save more money when you stay in network. Use our Find-a-Dentist tool to locate in-network dentists – and even schedule appointments online.

 

Understand your benefits

Your Schedule of Benefits shows what you may owe for different dental procedures. Keep it handy to help budget for your care. If you need a major procedure, ask your dentist for a “predetermination” first. It’s a free estimate that helps you understand your costs so there are no surprises.

 

Know your deductible and annual maximum

A deductible is the amount you must pay for dental care before your plan starts helping out. Your annual maximum is the most your plan will cover each year. Most deductibles and annual maximums reset each year, so don’t put off dental work you need.
