Did You Know?
Among Americans with dental insurance, 57% have left a dental problem like toothache or bleeding gums untreated, many because of a lack of price transparency. According to the 2013 Dental Care Affordability and Accessibility study that number is understandably higher for the uninsured, with nearly 70% avoiding treatment. We get it, going to the dentist is no fun because it’s associated with pain, and loss (of money or teeth in some cases!). It doesn’t matter how long it’s been since you’ve seen the dentist, follow these tips for a cheaper (and therefore more enjoyable) trip to the teeth doctor.
Stop Considering a Dental Discount Plan.
Yup. Stop considering a dental discount, just sign up for one! It’s like signing up for a VIP discount at the dentist. Most likely you will receive a better discount than the usual cash discount your dentist would give you. There are too many pros that you will love. Find out answers to any of your questions here.
Regular Dentist Visits Means Less Pain
It sounds crazy, but it’s true. You know that time you started working out, and you were sore for a week, but after that week you started feeling good and then you stopped? Your body felt so horrible once you started all over again. Well, the exact same thing happens with your teeth. Going to the dentist is like going to the gym to your teeth!
HSA or TSA?
No, it’s no the Aiport Police. (TSA) It’s something much better! We recommend you use your HSA so that you can get some extra benefits! Find out more about what you can do for yourself with an HSA if you don’t yet, or start saving these kind of investments. Invest in yourself!
Find a Provider Tool
Let’s say you’re ready to get the discount plan for you and your family. Find a dentist near you and make sure he’s in your network! I know, it’s kind of obvious but seriously, this will give you the confidence that you would never get anywhere else. Sometimes we call this tool the Confidence Booster Tool.
When you go to the dentist, you will be sure they are in-network and they can take Direct Access members.
Remember not to wait for a problem to be bigger and more painful. We believe that if you take care of it before with constant checkups, you can save money…and yourself a painful experience!
