Questions & Answers

 

What is a dental discount plan (or dental savings plan)?

A dental discount plan, also called a dental savings plan, is an another option instead of getting standard dental insurance. With a discount plan, you pay an annual fee and get discounts on your dental care of up to 60%.

Can I use my dental discount plan in combination with my dental insurance?

Yes, as long as you’ve reached the annual maximum on your dental insurance policy. And you’re also not able to use your insurance and your discount plan on the same dental procedure (according to insurance rules).

Your dentist can help you figure out how you can use these two together in regard to your specific dental care.

Am I limited on how many times I can get a discount?

No, there are no limits with a dental discount plan. You can get a discount every single time you receive dental care.

Do I have to file a claim for reimbursement after getting dental care?

No, once you show your membership card, your discount is applied in-office. This means no need to fill out paperwork or file a claim.

Where can I get discounts on dental care?

You can get a discount at any dentist in-network. To see what dental professionals are in the network, you can check out Cigna’s search tool (choose the “Find Dentists” option).

Can I still get a discount when receiving care from an out-of-network dentist?

No, but if your dentist is out-of-network, they can join the network by contacting Cigna.

What is the point of a fee schedule?

Possibly. Many discount plans can cover these types of procedures. For help with this, you can contact :DentalPlans’ Customer Service Department at 1-844-473-9852.

Why do dentists participate in discount dental plans? Aren’t they losing money?

It’s true that dental professional don’t make as much when a patient has a dental discount plan because these plans aren’t insurance, meaning the dental professional can’t file for a reimbursements.
