Going to the dentist can be painful, both in the mouth and the pocketbook. As everybody is aware, dental services are never covered under your health insurance policy...which means you typically can choose 1 of 2 options:
|Buy More Insurance!
- More specifically, dental insurance. This is a supplemental policy with additional monthly premiums you have to pay, to then get the "luxury" of paying less (in the form of a percentage discount) overall at the dental office when you go.
|Bite the Bullet!
- Head into the dental office and pay the retail value of the procedure, which is always considerably higher than the amount quoted to someone with dental insurance. Typically, you can get a small "no insurance" discount off the retail cost if you ask for it, so be sure to do so if you go this route.
As far as we're concerned, these aren't options...which is exactly why we went out and did something about it. Welcome to Option Number 3: American Health Value's Free Healthcare Discount Program.
This is a free program that gets you huge discounts on Pharmacy, Dental, Vision, Hearing & Medical Lab Testing. There is no catch, there are no fees, no premiums or start up costs, and the free healthcare discount card is printable directly from our website for immediate use.
However, in this post we're talking about the cost of dental work...so back to how you can save some money at the dentist:
- Free Dental Discount Card:
- Print the free card, locate a participating dentist by zip code, & save up to 50% off dental services. It's that simple.
We were curious as to exactly how much each scenario would cost, and more specifically, how much money our free dental discount card would save somebody at the dentist - so we conducted a little experiment.
We found a local dental office that accepted dental insurance, walk-ins with no insurance, and our free discount card. We simply called them up and asked for price quotes on the exact same procedure, from the same dentist, for each of the three payment options. Here's what we found:
Looks like our free dental discount card stacked up pretty well to say the least...
Let's take a look at some additional common dental procedures and the free dental discount card's average savings:
