Wanna keep your smile looking bright? Choose between the two dental options administered by Aetna. No ID card required—just enroll and then give your dentist the Aetna policy and phone number. Now say “cheese,” and show off those pearly whites.
The Aetna PPO plan lets you receive care from any dentist, but you’ll pay less and your annual benefit will stretch further when you use an in-network dentist.
Under the Aetna DMO plan, you have access to a limited number of dentists. You must select a dentist from the DMO network, and all care must be provided or prescribed by that dentist. But with no deductible or annual benefit limit, your benefit dollars will stretch even further.
Cost of coverage
Whether you enroll in the Aetna PPO or Aetna DMO, there’s no cost to you if you enroll in employee-only dental coverage. Planning to cover dependents? See how much you’ll pay each paycheck.
