Members are encouraged to share a copy of the Dental Schedule of Benefits with their dentist to see if they would be willing to accept the Schedule benefit payment as payment in full. Our previous provider list is in the process of being updated. Once it is, we will provide an up to date list. Until that time, it is best to verify individually with your dentist about acceptance of the benefit schedule.
Cleaning of teeth (prophylaxis) is covered twice during each plan year. If a periodontal (CTA4340 – CTA4341) scaling and a prophylaxis (CTA1110) are performed on the same date, the plan will only pay for the scaling. Additionally, the plan will not cover a prophylaxis within 30 days of a full mouth periodontal scaling.
The Plan covers oral examinations, x-rays and laboratory tests that may be necessary to diagnose a specific symptom.
The Plan will cover no more than four (4) x-rays for any oral examination. However, a full mouth x-ray of all teeth taken as part of a general examination is covered once in a three year period. Allowances for films or other procedures covered by the plan include the charge of examination and diagnosis. Oral exams are covered twice per plan year.
