Quality dental care is an important investment. By seeing the dentist every six months or so, you can reduce your risk of cavities, gum disease, and other complications down the road. Sometimes, patients are hesitant to visit the dentist because they are afraid they won’t be able to afford it.
Here at Costa Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we are firm believers in the fact that finances shouldn’t get in the way of healthy teeth and gums. That’s why we are pleased to accept Aetna dental insurance. While Aetna dental insurance may not completely cover every service, it can make dental care more affordable.
Aetna Options for Individuals and Families
If you don’t get Aetna dental insurance from an employer, Aetna offers a number of options you may want to consider including:
Aetna Dental Direct Plan
Aetna Dental Direct can give you the coverage you need to keep your teeth and gums in tip-top shape. Fortunately, you don’t have to invest in medical insurance or other coverage with Aetna to be eligible for this plan. The Aetna Dental Direct plan is unique because it completely covers preventative dental treatments with absolutely no out-of-pocket costs.
If you are interested in making a switch to this plan from another dental plan, you don’t have to worry about a waiting period for root canals, fillings, and other major services. Aetna will waive your waiting period so you can receive the service that you need as soon as possible. Aetna Dental Direct is not available in every state so check Aetna’s website to see if this is an option for you.
Aetna Vital Savings Dental Discount Card
The Aetna dental discount card can give you the chance to choose from hundreds of thousands dental practices across the nation. Once you receive services from a dentist, all you have to do is show them your card to enjoy instant savings. This card can give you 15 to 50 percent off most services. Please note it is not available in Vermont or Montana.
We are also huge fans of Aetna because their website offers a variety of digital tools that make it a breeze for you to search for dentists, read patient reviews and ratings, and compare out-of-pocket costs. The website can also give you the chance to schedule dentist appointments online and receive email reminders. They are also known for their superior customer service with team members that have an average of 14 years of experience in the dental insurance industry.
In addition, we complimentary insurance benefits checks to help you understand your coverage. You can count on our administrative team to clearly outline what your insurance will pay for and what you will owe out-of-pocket. We’ll ensure that you are well-informed of the exact cost of your treatment so there won’t be any surprises.
We also offer courtesy insurance claim filing so you don’t have to worry about informing your insurance company of the treatment(s) you received. Our administrative team will also take care of this on your behalf. If you are concerned about paying for your dental treatment(s), we can work with you to design a flexible payment plan that aligns well with your budget and lifestyle.
