5 Things to Know About Your County Dental Insurance


  1. Your dental insurance reduces your cost for big ticket items such as fillings, root canals, and crowns.
  2. You get discounted rates from in-network providers.
  3. Routine checkups and cleanings are free.
  4. Your dental insurance may have an annual maximum. If you have significant dental issues, consider putting extra money in your Healthcare FSA to pay your out-of-pocket costs with tax-free dollars.
