It’s that time of year again when health funds start to wind down and many people are left scrambling to use up their remaining benefits. If you’re one of those people, don’t despair! There are still ways to make the most of your insurance before the end of the year.
One of the best ways to use up your benefits is to get a check-up. Many people don’t realise that most health funds will cover the cost of a general check-up with a Dental Practitioner. So if you haven’t been to the doctor in a while, now is a great time to go.
Another way to use up your benefits is to get any outstanding dental work done. Again, many people don’t realise that most health funds will cover the cost of basic dental work such as check-ups, x-rays, and cleanings. So if you’ve been putting off that trip to the dentist, now is the time to go.
So if you’re looking to use up your remaining health insurance benefits, be sure to get a check-up, get any outstanding dental work done, and renew any prescription medications. And don’t forget, most health funds will not allow you to roll over your benefits into the new year, so you can start the year off with a clean slate.
