Persons with Disabilities on provincial assistance have a maximum dental coverage limit of $1000 over two calendar years. That means that many people have unused portions that they are unaware of. The administrative staff at the dental office calls Victoria with the individual’s Care Card number and can confirm whether or not there is any amount remaining. It’s also a good time to get major work completed as they can possibly string two eligibility periods together. So, for many it can be a "use it or lose it" situation!
