CIGNA Dental Plans

The University offers two dental plan options through CIGNA Dental:

 

CIGNA Dental DHMO
 

The CIGNA Dental DHMO plan offers in-network only coverage. This plan is available in 38 states.

Enrollment in the plan requires the election of a Primary Care Dentist within the CIGNA Dental Care Network. Referrals must be obtained from your Primary Care Dentist in order to see a specialist.

An ID card will be issued for this plan. Typically, a participant will receive only one ID card with all dependents, if applicable, listed.

Please visit http://www.cigna.com (or http://www.mycigna.com, for those already enrolled) to search for an in-network provider in your area. You may also contact CIGNA Customer Service, at 1-800-CIGNA24, for assistance.

If you wish to change your Primary Care Dentist, you must contact CIGNA prior to visiting another dentist, even if he/she participates in the CIGNA Dental Care Network.

CIGNA DENTAL PPO

The Cigna Dental PPO plan has three tiers of coverage:   DPPO Advantage, DPPO and out-of-network coverage.    

Providers in the CIGNA DPPO Advantage and DPPO are considered to be in-network for this plan.  As such, the DPPO Advantage and DPPO plans are based on negotiated rates with Cigna and you should not be balance billed from the dentist.  However, the out-of-network plan is based on reasonable and customary allowances and you are subject to being balance billed by the dentist.

The Cigna DPPO Advantage plan has higher level of benefits when utilizing an Advantage PPO dentist including a higher annual maximum of a $2,000 per person (based on a calendar year).  For both the DPPO and out-of-network providers, there is a $1,500 maximum annual benefit per person (based on a calendar year).   

There is no ID card for this plan. Claim forms, for out-of-network services, are available on the Human Resources web page under Forms (please click here to access the CIGNA Dental PPO Claim Form).

Please visit http://www.cigna.com (or http://www.mycigna.com, for those already enrolled) to search for an in-network provider in your area. You may also contact CIGNA Customer Service, at 1-800-CIGNA24, for assistance.
