Aetna Coverage Availability & Fees

Aetna is a leading provider of comprehensive dental plans for families and individuals. Your monthly premiums allow you to benefit from affordable dental care. Although every policy differs, most plans include:

  • 100% of Preventive Services
  • 80% of Minor Restorative Services
  • 50% of Major Restorative Services

Aetna focuses on prevention to stop common oral health issues from occurring in the first place, like cavities and gum disease. Not only does prevention preserve your oral health, but it also reduces the risk of needing costly procedures down the road. Research has found that every $1 spent on preventive dentistry can save up to $50 on restorative and emergency fees. You can visit your dentist every 6 months for a cleaning and checkup for a co-payment.

If your dentist finds anything concerning, you don't have to worry about a large bill. Aetna is there for you. After meeting your annual deductible, Aetna will pay a portion of the fees for medically necessary treatments until you reach your yearly limit.

Aetna recommends choosing a dentist in their network to benefit from more coverage at the time of services. They have pre-negotiated rates with preferred dental practices. You can still visit any dentist that accepts your coverage, even if they are out-of-network. You can use your benefits, but you'll have to pay the difference between the dentist’s fees and your insurance's allowable amount. We are proud to accept both in-network and out-of-network patients.

With less than 3% of policyholders meeting or exceeding their annual limits, we don't want to see you throw money down the drain. Your dental benefits don't last forever. They expire at the end of the year. You'll lose anything you haven't used and nothing accumulates. You won't be reimbursed for your premiums or deductibles, either. We know dental insurance can be confusing, but you don't have to navigate your policy alone.
