1The term “DHMO” is used to refer to product designs that can vary depending on your state, including but not limited to, prepaid plans, managed care plans and plans with open access features. The Cigna Dental Care plan is not available in all states.

2A benefit is paid for covered out-of-network emergency dental care. Certain states mandate coverage for dental care received out-of-network. For example, in Minnesota, the plan will pay 50% of the value of your network benefit for covered out-of-network services. In Oklahoma, the plan will pay the same amount it pays network dentists for covered out-of-network services. You are responsible for any charges not covered by the plan. Other states may have similar mandates. Refer to your plan documents for cost and coverage details.

3Please refer to your plan documents or contact your employer for more information on what out-of- pocket costs you may be responsible for and what’s covered and not covered by your employer’s specific plan.

Plans may vary so see your Dental Fee Overview for a summary of covered preventive care services.

The following orthodontic services are generally not covered: incremental costs associated with optional/elective materials; orthognathic surgery appliances to guide minor tooth movement or correct harmful habits; and any services which are not typically included in orthodontic treatment.
