HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Dr. Wynn Okuda appeared on Sunrise this morning to tell you what you need to know about your dental insurance. He said that most people don't know what their plan is. He said to look online so that you know the key points and benefits that are offered to you.
Also, be proactive. You're paying for this benefit, so you should use it for your cleanings and examinations. If you have larger dental needs, try to get procedures pre-approved so that you're not surprised by the bill at the end of the treatment. This can also help you plan for your future dental needs.
Lastly, make sure to use it. You have an annual maximum. Find out what that is and take advantage of your plan.
From Dr. Wynn Okuda
KNOW YOUR PLAN
USE IT OR LOSE IT
Tip of the Day
Find out if your work place offers "Flexible Spending Accounts", where a portion of your pretax wages can be set aside to pay for medical or dental expenses. This would definitely help supplement whatever dental insurance covers. If it's offered, evaluate if it would help you.
