RIVERVIEW, Fla. (PRWEB) December 14, 2017
SouthShore Orthodontics invites new and current patients to make appointments now through December 31, 2017, as part of their Use It or Lose It orthodontic insurance campaign. Dr. Matt Ahrens, experienced orthodontist in Riverview, FL, recommends patients visit his office for braces and other orthodontic care before insurance benefits expire on January 1, 2018.
Patients who have orthodontic insurance that renews at the start of the calendar year have until the end of December to take advantage of lower out-of-pocket expenses. A deductible is the amount of money a patient must pay before the insurance company begins paying for any services. Deductibles generally restart in January, which is why Dr. Ahrens encourages patients to join the campaign and receive treatment now while they are more likely to meet insurance deductibles quickly. Patients in need of braces or other complex orthodontic services can benefit from taking advantage of insurance benefits now until the end of the year.
Dr. Ahrens also recommends that patients find an orthodontic provider within their network to minimize additional out-of-pocket expenses. Patients who receive treatment from in-network providers are only required to pay deductibles and co-payments, based on their insurance plan. Receiving orthodontic care from an out-of-network provider increases the risk of accruing extra charges from balance billing or processing fees. SouthShore Orthodontics accepts many insurance carriers and works with patients to create interest-free payment plans if dental coverage is limited.
Dr. Ahrens and the SouthShore Orthodontics team strives to make it easy for patients to maximize their insurance benefits and receive the orthodontic care they need before the year comes to a close. Dr. Ahrens offers many orthodontic services for the whole family, including Invisalign® clear braces, ceramic braces, and traditional braces. He incorporates the latest technology, including digital x-rays and dental lasers, into his treatments to provide patients with more accurate and predictable outcomes.
