Helping You Get the Dentistry You Need
Having dental insurance is a helpful tool that can defray the cost of certain dental procedures. Choosing a dentist in your Aetna network allows you to maximize your benefits and receive the best coverage available.
Because dental insurance focuses on preventive care, you will find that you have the most coverage for your six-month cleaning and checkup appointments. These visits help you to avoid many bigger and more costly dental procedures if you are consistent about attending them.
Did you know that you can prevent root canal therapy by being proactive about treating tooth decay? It’s true! Eliminating tooth decay with a simple dental filling will help you prevent an infection in your tooth that would require more invasive root canal therapy to restore it to back to health.
Aetna Coverage Availability & Fees
It is true that every Aetna plan varies by employer; however, there are still a few standard facts about dental insurance that you can typically rely on. These are:
- Preventive care appointments (dental cleanings and checkups) are covered at 100% in your network. This means that there will be no out-of-pocket cost to you when you visit Dr. Swearingen for your routine cleaning and checkups.
- Minor restorative treatments like dental fillings are typically covered at a percentage that could range from 70% to 80%.
- Major restorative treatment such as a dental crown or bridge is usually covered at around 50%.
- Most plans typically include a yearly maximum, which is the most benefit dollars that your plan will pay during the year. This amount typically falls between $1000 to $2000.
