Use Your Dental Benefits Wisely

Here’s how to make the most of your dental benefits:

  • Choose a provider: Using a participating dentist in the Delta Dental network will ensure you receive the highest benefits from your plan. To find a provider, go to Delta Dental. You must use a network dentist if you choose the Cigna DHMO. Non-network dental care is not covered under the Cigna DHMO
  • If your service will exceed $300, submit for a pre-treatment estimate. You should always submit a request for a pre-treatment estimate for procedures and services your dentist believes will exceed $300 (procedures such as crowns, inlays, bridges, and periodontics). For more information, call 1-855-237-6421 or visit the Delta Dental or Cigna DHMO website
  • Check your claim status and other information at Delta Dental or Cigna DHMO. You can review Explanation of Benefits (EOB) statements, check if claims have been paid, and more
