Aetna Coverage Availability & Fees
Aetna is a nationwide provider of comprehensive dental plans for families and individuals. Dental coverage differs a bit from medical insurance because it focuses on prevention to stop common oral health issues, like tooth decay and gum disease. This approach preserves their policyholders' natural smiles while reducing future dental expenses. Research has shown that you can save $50 on restorative care for every $1 spent on preventive services. However, if a problem does occur, Aetna will pay a portion of the cost of common restorative treatments, like fillings, tooth extractions, and root canal therapy. While every policy differs, most plans include:
- 100% coverage for preventive services
- 80% coverage for minor restorative services
- 50% coverage for major restorative services
Although more Americans than ever have dental insurance, less than 3% reach their annual limits. Your dental benefits expire at the end of the year, and you won’t be reimbursed for your premiums or deductible. Anything you don’t use won’t accumulate.
Don’t throw money down the drain. You can visit your dentist twice a year after a co-payment. If a problem arises, your dental insurance can pay up to 80% of the expense after meeting your deductible.
Aetna recommends choosing a dentist in their network to make the most of your annual allowance. You can benefit from more coverage at the time of service; however, you have the freedom to visit any dentist that accepts your insurance. We are proud to work with both in-network and out-of-network patients.
