Let It All Go …… Except Your Unused Benefits

Letting go is beautiful, for everything except your #UnusedDentalInsurance☺️

Less than 90-days to utilize your 2018 benefits.

Results of a new study suggest that one in four employees who have dental insurance aren’t using their benefits due to concerns about cost. Specifically, the study found that the employees had forgone routine dental cleanings and check-ups in the past 12 months – even though these services are generally covered by dental insurance – suggesting that there is a lack of understanding about what these benefits include.

In the survey, which was conducted by benefits provider Lincoln Financial Group, the majority of employees reported that dental coverage was a “must have” benefit, but half of those surveyed indicated that their employee had not provided adequate information about what these benefits include.

In the survey, 65 percent of employees wanted their company to provide general information about what’s covered by their dental insurance plan, 54 percent indicated that they would appreciate an employee-provided list of local in-network dentists, and 34 percent would like ratings or rankings or those in-network dentists.

While dental anxiety can keep some people from seeking out care, misperceptions about the cost of routine dental services also serves as a significant deterrent, particularly for employees who have higher deductibles as part of their benefits plans.
