Learn More About the Benefits of Aetna

Every dental insurance policy has a similar framework. Most plans include the following:

  • 100% coverage for preventive services (i.e., checkups, cleanings, and X-rays)
  • 80% coverage for minor restorative services (i.e., fillings, simple extractions)
  • 50% coverage for major restorative services (i.e., dental crowns, complex extractions, oral surgery)

Typically, Aetna dental plans focus on prevention to stop common oral health issues from occurring, like tooth decay and gum disease. By doing everything you can to preserve your natural teeth, you can lessen the risk of needing complex dental treatments down the line. In fact, studies have shown that every dollar spent on prevention can save $50 on emergency and restorative fees.

Once you meet your deductible, you can use your annual allowance to reduce your out-of-pocket expenses for services like fillings, root canals, or gum disease therapy. Aetna recommends choosing an in-network dentist so you can enjoy more coverage at the time of services. They usually have pre-negotiated rates with certain practices to lower the cost of care. If you choose an out-of-network dentist, you can use your coverage, but pay the difference between the office fees and your policy’s allowable amount.

At Witt Orthodontics, we will help you get the most out of your benefits before they expire at the end of the year. Since you aren’t reimbursed for your premiums or deductible if you don’t maximize your allowance, nothing will accumulate. While dental insurance can be confusing, it doesn’t have to be that way! We’ll help you navigate your policy alone.
