Stay flexible and keep your options open
Choosing a PPO or Premier dentist saves money because you only pay a percentage. Covered services are paid based on a percentage of the dentist’s fee. For example, if fillings are covered at 80%, you pay the remaining 20% of the cost. (You may be responsible for a deductible, as well as charges for non-covered services and amounts over the annual maximum. Visiting an out-of-network dentist may lead to higher costs if the dentist’s fee is more than your plan’s maximum allowance for the procedure.)
If you have a table of allowance (TOA) plan, coverage is based on a table of pre-determined fees — you pay the difference.
Choose any dentist
Visit any licensed dentist, anywhere. Save the most by visiting a dentist from the PPO network. These dentists agree to reduced fees, and they won’t charge you more than your expected share of the bill. They also complete your claim forms and can advise you on questions about your share of the bill. It’s easy to locate a dentist near you.
You and family members covered under your plan don’t have to visit the same dentist.
