Dental Indemnity Plans

The ability to choose any dentist

Our dental indemnity insurance plan is a traditional fee-for-service dental plan. Members enjoy the freedom to visit any licensed dentist for covered services.

Plan features

  • No referrals required.
  • Eligible preventive, basic and major services are covered.
  • Members visit any licensed dentist.
  • Deductibles, coinsurance and annual plan maximums apply.
  • Members pay the dentist up front then get reimbursed for eligible services.

 

Employer cost savings

  • Employers can offer two plan options with separate rates: a dental indemnity plan and a Dental Maintenance Organization (DMO®)* plan. DMO is available at about half the cost of a traditional dental PPO plan.
  • Offer indemnity dental to those who will pay 50% or more of the premium.

*State laws vary with regard to out-of-network benefits. In Illinois, DMO plans provide limited out-of–network benefits. However, in order to receive maximum benefits, members must select and have care coordinated by a participating primary care dentist. Illinois DMO is not an HMO.

**Plan options may vary by state.
