Dental Benefits

What you need to know

You can choose from two Cigna dental plans that cover all your dental needs, from routine exams and cleanings to major services like bridgework, crowns, and orthodontia. Although you may see any dentist you like, when you visit a Cigna Dental network dentist, you’ll pay less and you won’t have to file a claim.

Find a participating dentist

The Cigna website makes it simple to locate a participating dentist in your area.

Plan Features

Choose from two plans: Cigna Dental Option 1 (Basic) or Cigna Dental Option 2 (Enhanced).

Both plans feature:

  • A nationwide network of Cigna dentists
  • Discounted rates for using participating Cigna network dentists
  • Preventive and diagnostic care at no cost to you
  • Coverage for restorative services and orthodontia

The key difference: Option 2 provides a higher annual maximum benefit and higher levels of coverage for basic restorative and orthodontic services. Its higher benefit levels will cost you more per paycheck.

You can also choose to waive dental coverage.

Know before you go
Before you sit down for a procedure that will cost more than $200, contact Cigna to request a pretreatment review of benefits. That way, you’ll know how much the plan will cover, and how much you’ll need to pay.

If You Use an Out-of-Network Dentist

  • You may pay more for services because non-participating dentists have not negotiated fee discounts with Cigna.
  • You may need to pay the dentist yourself and then submit a claim to be reimbursed by Cigna.
  • If you need to submit a dental claim yourself, ask your dentist for a standard American Dental Association claim form.
