Aetna Coverage Availability & Fees

You will find that most dental insurance plans build their benefit levels based on preventive care. The typical format is 100-80-50, which means that those services that are dedicated to reducing your risk of dental decay and disease (i.e., dental checkups, cleanings, X-rays, etc.) are covered at 100%.

Should you need a dental filling or crown, your insurance provider may see this as a minor restorative service and offer 80% coverage. Other, more extensive treatments such as root canals, tooth extractions, etc. may be deemed major restorative services and be covered at 50%.

Each plan is different, which is why it’s important to have a trusted team member who can help you better understand your coverage and how you can save. This is one of the many benefits of seeing an in-network dentist, as they partner with your insurance company to negotiate fees and terms that are based on various preventive and restorative services.

Also, because of this partnership, our team may be able to work more closely with you and your plan should you need treatment that causes you to go over your annual maximum. If we see that you are at risk of having to pay high out-of-pocket costs, we may be able to extend your care across calendar years.
