Getting the most from your dental insurance plan

  1. 1. 5 Ways to Get the Most from Your Dental Plan
  2. 2. Visit the dentist See the dentist for routine dental care. Most dental plans cover two preventive care visits including an exam and cleaning at 100 percent. Space these visits out throughout the year to help keep cavities and other oral health problems at bay.
  3. 3. Go in-network It is likely your dental plan partners with certain providers who offer discounts. Seeing providers that are included in your plan’s network is an easy way to save on dental care. Before you buy a plan, be sure to see if your preferred providers are included in its network.
  4. 4. Understand your benefits Read your plan’s membership materials and know what benefits you have access to. Make sure you are getting a plan that meets your oral health needs as well as your budget. If you buy coverage that’s too robust, you lose money. If you don’t buy enough, you risk unexpected out-ofpocket expenses.
  5. 5. Use the extras! Buy a plan with added benefits – and use them. Most plans at dentalinsurance.org include a prescription drug card and discount vision services. Know what extras your plan includes and take advantage of them!
  6. 6. Buy it before you need it! Dental plans often include a waiting period for non-preventive services. If you wait until your teeth hurt, you may be too late. Preventive care is accessible right away and it helps decrease your risk for cavities and gum disease.
