A lot of businesses are doing the best they can for their employees during the coronavirus crisis. Unfortunately, many people are losing their jobs faster than ever before.
Whether it is through job cuts, temporary layoffs, or requiring employees to burn accrued vacation and sick time until the economy can reopen, many businesses and even whole industries are struggling to stay afloat. But many companies are trying to ease the pain for their workers by extending their health insurance benefits — at least for now.
If you currently aren’t working but your company has temporarily extended your health and dental insurance benefits, it’s important that you use them before they run out.
Dental insurance coverage can help you and your family get much-needed dental care without having to carry the entire financial burden on your own. Employer-provided dental care often covers things like dental checkups, teeth cleaning, and even bigger dental procedures either in full or in part so that the employee doesn’t have to pay for the whole thing out of their own pocket.
But if your dental benefits expire because your job has been eliminated or you have been laid off, the burden could fall entirely on you. So there is both a financial and health motivation for people who currently have dental insurance to use it before they lose it.
Make An Appointment Now
Many dental offices are currently open for emergency procedures. And while nobody knows exactly when government officials and medical experts will allow all business to reopen as normal, it likely will be sooner rather than later.
When they do, dental appointments are going to fill up fast as patients whose jobs were affected by the coronavirus crisis try to use their dental benefits before they run out. If you want to make sure you get the appointments for you and your family that are most convenient, the time to call is right now.
