Most insurances are on a calendar year for benefits. Dental offices will get very busy and full when the year end approaches. It is suggested that if you have unused dental benefits that you not wait to get in to your dentist. In some cases, patients lost their left over benefits simply because they couldn't get an appointment to be seen. Some insurances are on a benefit year and start over the same date they began. In this case check with your human resources to confirm your benefit year to ensure you don't lose out on your benefits.
