CIGNA Dental Plans

(For the 6-month plan year from July 1, 2018 – December 31, 2018)

A dependent may be covered under the dental plans until the end of the calendar year in which he/she turns age 26.

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.

Please Note: Annual deductibles, plan maximums, etc. are based upon a calendar year.


CIGNA Dental PPO

The Cigna Dental PPO plan has three tiers of coverage: DPPO Advantage, DPPO, and out-of-network coverage. There is no ID card for this plan.

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).

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.
