It’s that time of the year! Everyone gets excited when Open Enrollment season begins. That excitement can quickly turn when you’re not sure which insurance plan is best for you.
We have a few pointers to help you choose wisely as you re-evaluate your insurance needs. Please note that this is not an endorsement, we simply wish to keep you informed in your decision making process. The ultimate decision lies in your hands.
Here are a few ways to help make that decision easier:
* First check to see what the maximum coverage amount is based on each plan’s options. Plans can vary from company to company as well as within the same company.
* Secondly, determine what the maximum allowances are for major operations. If you know you may need to take care of certain procedures, see what benefits you will receive.
* Thirdly, ask what is the plan’s maximum deductible amount allowed per year? This is an important step to see what will be covered by your plan.
* Lastly, find out what the waiting period is for receiving services. How long must you wait after signing up for your plan to actually be able to use it and see your dentist?
We want you to be well informed when making decisions such as this.
