As an extension of Mayo Clinic Human Resources, Benefits Connect brings together benefits experts, plan members, and those who are curious about benefits to share their experiences and knowledge. Each new post is designed to go beyond simple resource information to practical advice on the best strategy to get the most out of the industry-leading benefits at Mayo Clinic. Join the conversation by commenting on posts and replying to comments.
Each year, Mayo Clinic employees who are enrolled in Delta Dental plans leave behind unused dollars.
The maximum annual benefit in Delta Dental Standard option is $1,000 per person. If you don't use all of the benefit, it doesn't rollover to the new year. Unused amounts simply vanish and the new annual maximum becomes available.
It's probably not too late to make an appointment before the end of the year for cleanings or other dental concerns. As long as the date of service is on or before 12/31/2017, it will come out of this years' benefit amount and you have 12 months to file the claims.
