Use it or lose it! Most private health insurance benefits expire annually at the end of December.
Did you know? With the new year fast approaching, most private health insurance dental benefits are about to expire.
Unfortunately the health funds do not allow rollover of benefits – they take a USE IT OR LOSE IT APPROACH.
What are we on about?
Most major health funds within Australia have a benefit year commencing on the 1st of January through until the 31st December. What does this mean for you? Well, if you haven’t used all of your dental benefits before the end of the year, they may expire. Elapse. Run out. Become invalid. And you and your teeth will be left without the care that (let’s face it) you pay for through your health insurance.
Take action now!
It is essential that if you have any required treatment that they be booked in and completed before the end of the calendar year so you can maximise the use of your insurance benefits.
If you haven’t had a checkup with the last 6 months, it may be an idea to book in asap, so we can schedule any required treatment before your benefits run out. As this is a very heavily booked time of the year, we recommend calling as soon as possible as many of our patients take the opportunity to get their dental treatment just before their limits for the year run out.
