Under the program, families also can take advantage of the
Family Share Max®and
reventive Max Waiver® options being offered.
Family Share Max, which replaces traditional individual maximums, allows families to pull from one shared dental coverage pool in a way that most effectively meets their specific needs and budgets. In a 2013 national consumer survey
1, 63 percent of consumers said that at least one family member needs more dental work than the others during the year. Consequently, 55 percent would prefer
one shared dental dollar amount for the entire family, rather than each individual having separate funds. Family Share Max meets those needs, allowing families to decrease out-of-pocket costs and maximize their benefit dollars.
Preventive Max Waiver, covers preventive treatments like exams, cleanings and most x-rays, yet they do not count against the maximum coverage. This encourages preventative dental care while making more benefit dollars available for costlier procedures.
“Families don’t have to put off important dental work because of individual dental coverage limits or because they’re close to their maximums anymore,” Almquist said. “Family Share Max and Preventive Max Waiver let families prioritize their dental needs, which help them resolve dental issues more quickly and without breaking the bank. This is important given the strong connection between oral health and overall health.”
