We’re happy to offer quality dental coverage. Having healthy teeth and gums can help prevent certain health risks caused by poor oral hygiene, like diabetes and heart disease. That’s why we contract with Healthplex to help manage the dental needs of our members. Healthplex has a large network of participating dentists and specialists.
Your plan may include preventive and/or comprehensive dental benefits. If it does not, you can buy optional supplemental dental benefits for an additional low monthly premium. There is one dental preferred provider organization (PPO) plan or one dental indemnity plan to choose from. Each option is tailored to meet your needs.
The dental PPO plan gives you the most cost saving by staying in-network. Services provided by a non-network dentist will be reimbursed according to the out-of-network allowance. After your deductible and/or cost-share amount, you will be responsible for the difference between the out-of-network allowance and the total amount billed by a non-network dentist.
The dental indemnity plan gives you the most flexibility when it comes to choosing your dentist with no Network. We will reimburse you 50% of the billed amount of any dental services you paid for, up to the plan annual maximum.
Enrolling in a ConnectiCare optional dental plan as a ConnectiCare member, you can:
• Enroll and drop an optional dental plan at any time during the calendar year
• Change to a different optional dental plan from 10/15/2022 through 12/31/2022*.
• Upgrade your optional dental plan from 01/01/2023 through 03/31/2023.
*Note: If you later disenroll in your optional dental plan, you can only re-enroll in that dental plan. You cannot switch to a different dental plan.
