Plus Maximum Carryover1
1 If at least one covered service is paid in a benefit year and the total benefit paid does not exceed $500 in that benefit year, $250 will be added to the next benefit year carryover maximum. This amount will accumulate from one benefit year to the next, but will not exceed $1,000.
*There is a 12 month waiting period for all members for Major Dental Services.
SAVE ON THE CARE YOU NEED2
For example: A dentist may submit a $950 charge for a crown. With dental insurance, the dentist accepts a reduced fee of $744. That's an immediate savings of $206! Furthermore, having dental insurance means the carrier pays a percentage from the reduced fee so you can see how the advantages of dental coverage can add up quickly.
For an In-Network Dentist:2
Max Approved Fee
61% decrease from the dentists fee!
2 The payment example above is for illustrative purposes only. Fees and reimbursements can vary by location and dentist. It does however represent how the payment is determined.
Difference Between In- & Out-of-Network Benefits:
Based on the negotiated contracted dentist fee schedule. Using in-network dentists, the member can save more because the significant contracted discounts will result in less out-of-pocket expenses. By saving, the member will be able to receive more services during the year than if the member sees a non-contracted dentist.
Based on the local UCR charges. By seeing an out-of-network dentist, you have the freedom to choose any dentist and still have the benefits paid at the same coinsurance percentages. However, your annual maximum could be met sooner since the out-of-network dentists don't offer the same contracted discounts.
More than 1 in 5 people said that they had not visited the dentist in the last few years.1
40.2% of adults indicated that they will forgo dental care due to cost.1
