Affordable dental care can be within reach
Members take a more active role in dental care with the Aetna DentalFund insurance plan.
Why Aetna DentalFund?
- Tax advantages – Dental insurance fund dollar contributions are not considered taxable income.
- Plan options – The base dental plan may be a Preferred Provider Organization plan (PPO)* or an indemnity dental insurance plan.
- Choice – Choose the deductible, coinsurance and fund amounts that work best.
- Flexibility – The DentalFund offers the option to reimburse certain non-covered procedures.
- No referrals – Members can visit any licensed dentist.
Fund dollars count toward the deductible
- If a member’s fund contains $200, and the deductible is $175, the member will have “paid” all of the deductible after spending $175 from the fund.
- After a member pays the deductible, he or she will pay a percentage of costs. This percentage is called coinsurance. The fund will cover this amount, as long as there is money available.
- The dental plan pays for covered care up to a yearly maximum.
- There are age and frequency limits for certain services.
Plan funding options
- Choose a self-funded or fully insured funding arrangement.
- Under the self-funded option, plan sponsors can allow the fund to help pay for dental expenses not typically covered, including certain services that have age and frequency limits.
- Under the fully insured option, plan sponsors pay a premium that covers the fund and plan benefits. We assume the risk for both.
*In Texas, the Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) is known as the Participating Dental Network (PDN).
