Get a Healthy Smile with Cigna Dental

dental insuranceDid you know the secret to a healthy smile relies on more than just brushing and flossing at home? You must also see your dentist every 6 months for a cleaning and checkup. Unfortunately, one-third of Americans do not schedule an appointment as often as they should. If you are among those who are delaying their care because you fear a large bill, you can get the affordable services you need with Cigna dental insurance. You have access to the comprehensive coverage you need to keep your teeth and gums healthy to lower your long-term dental costs. Dr. Richard Fossum works with your insurance carrier to keep our services affordable.

Cigna Insurance Coverage Availability & Fees

dental checkupDental insurance is designed with a focus on prevention. It gives you the coverage you need to visit your dentist twice a year for a cleaning and checkup for little to no out-of-pocket cost by paying your monthly premiums. This allows Dr. Fossum to monitor your oral health to reduce the risk of preventable issues, like tooth decay and gum disease. Keeping your teeth and gums healthy decreases your overall dental costs. Every $1 you spend on prevention can save you $8 to $50 on restorative and emergency fees.

Even with the best preventive care, a complication can still develop. Cigna is there for you to quickly reinstate your oral health for discounted rates after paying your annual deductible. They pay a portion of the costs of your treatment until you reach your annual limit.

Depending on your specific policy, you can enjoy:

  • 100% preventive coverage.
  • 50% to 80% restorative coverage.

Cigna recommends you choose a dentist who is in their network, like Dr. Fossum. He has pre-negotiated rates with the insurance carrier to maximize your savings opportunities; however, he also works with patients who are out-of-network. Dr. Fossum strives to keep his services within your budget, even if that means spitting your treatments across calendar years.
