With the hustle and bustle of year-end around the corner, it’s time to review your to-dos and ensure everything is on track for a successful fall and winter. One thing that’s often overlooked is completing annual dental and vision preventive exams. While they may seem like a lower priority among other items on your checklist, skipping your routine care appointments could have a much bigger impact than you think on your health and your wallet.

The Cost of Procrastination

Did you know postponing your dental exams can lead to more than just tartar and plaque buildup? Dental issues can escalate quickly, and today’s minor toothache could lead to a much more painful and costly root canal or tooth extraction.

The same goes for vision health. A regular eye exam can help detect serious conditions like glaucoma, macular degeneration, and cataracts. If you are able to address these concerns when early signs appear, you will not only save on expensive treatments but also avoid further damage to your health.

Maximize Your Benefits

If you’re subscribed to a dental or vision insurance plan, preventive exams are often fully covered. Make sure you’re making the most of your benefits by scheduling annual check-ups.

Also, if you’ve enrolled in a Flexible Spending Account (FSA), you may have flex dollars that will need to be used by year-end. Don’t leave money on the table by skipping your appointments!

Make Your Appointments Today

As the months fly by, it may be more challenging to find an appointment time that fits into your schedule. Stay ahead of the year-end rush by calling your healthcare provider and scheduling preventive care today.

We know it’s easy to put our own health aside when things get busy, but the consequences of missing routine checkups can sneak up on you. Don’t risk missing something important – make that call today!
