At Dental Excellence, Dr. Brett Noorda and the rest of our team are happy to work with your insurance policy so you can get the greatest value out of it. Not only are we experts with insurance in general, but we’re also in-network with a number of major dental coverage providers, including Aetna. We’re eager to help you keep your costs to a minimum so your smile at can stay radiant and healthy without causing you undue financial stress.
Aetna Coverage Availability & Fees
Aetna offers plans both through employers as well as policies that you can purchase on your own. There are a few different types of plans available, including DMO plans, wherein you must visit an in-network dentists to use your benefits; indemnity plans, which require you to pay for services upfront and be reimbursed later; and PPO plans, which allow you to use your benefits at any licensed dentist and pay only a portion of the cost of your care.
In general, a PPO plan’s coverage works like this:
- Preventive care (cleanings, exams, annual X-rays, etc.): 80 – 100% covered
- Minor restorative care (fillings, non-routine X-rays, etc.): 70 – 80% covered
- Major restorative care (crowns, wisdom tooth extractions, etc.): 50% covered
As an in-network Aetna dentist, we’re in the best position to help you get the most out of your policy. Fees tend to be a bit lower at in-network dentists, a fact that allows you to get more value out of your annual maximum (the highest amount that Aetna will pay out for approved services in a year). We can also suggest strategies that will allow you minimize your out of pocket costs. For example, if you need to undergo a major service that exceeds your annual maximum, we might be able to schedule it across calendar years so you can use two maximums rather than one.
