Dental Benefits – Important End of Year Message

AK Dental Arts in Staten Island NY - new dental patients

As the end of the year approaches, there are two important issues that you have to attend to well before the end of this calendar year.

  1. If you haven’t utilized your dental benefits to the fullest, please recognize that you must do so before December 31. Ignoring your allowed utilization will cause you to lose benefits for this calendar year. You will not be able to recover any of these benefits. We can easily catch a simple problem before it gets too advanced and cost you more in dollars and aggravation. Schedule your appointment as soon as possible.
  2. The selection of your dental benefits for the upcoming year are occurring now. Many patients do not understand the consequences of selecting a poor insurance product that they deem good at the time of presentation. Our office team is proficient in understanding the differences in products that you are selecting from. Before making your final selection, it is urgent that you speak to us for the best decision.

Insurance products change regularly. Please understand that it is beyond the scope of any dental or medical office to control what new dental benefits (or the lack thereof) you will get in the forthcoming years. We ask you, our patients, to closely review the products you are being offered and discuss the options with your spouse, your HR department, and with us, your dental provider.   This way we can try to circumvent any disappointments you may have in the future.

We thank you for reading this letter and look forward to seeing you in our office.
