Great oral health is an essential part of a taking care of your overall health. Through Ameritas we offer two dental plans that cover routine checkups and other dental care. The plans differ in how much you pay per pay period and how much you pay at the time of service.

Covered Services

Both dental plans provide benefits for:

  • Preventive services, such as oral exams, cleanings and x-rays
  • Basic services, such as fillings, extractions, root canal therapy and treatment of gum disease
  • Major services, such as crowns, bridges and dentures

The High plan also includes orthodontia coverage and provides more coverage for basic and dental services.

Benefit tip! You can also use your Health Care Flexible Spending Account—or, if you're enrolled in the High Deductible Health Plan, your Health Savings Account (HSA) or Limited-Purpose Flexible Spending Account—to pay for eligible dental expenses (that are not covered by another plan) on a pre-tax basis. Keep in mind that cosmetic procedures, such as teeth whitening, are not considered eligible expenses.
