Dental Health Insurance Plans - Select the Best

Looking for quality dental health insurance plans? Many people are doing just that. Searching for dental insurance that will provide them with the benefits and money saving options they need.

All dental health insurance plans are not the same. Some are programs that provide you with a discount on a variety of dental services. Some plans may limit the dental services that they will cover, and others expect you to pay first and then get reimbursed at a later time.

In a number of instances the benefit options are not handled in the same manner; and there are some other important program benefits that you should be aware of before you make a final decision on which policy to choose.

You need to know what types of dentistry services are covered by the policy you are considering. You also need to know if there are any costs that you must pay up front and then be reimbursed for at a later date. It is also very important to know the options that are available when you sign up for any dental insurance plans.

When you begin your search for a reliable and reputable dental insurance plan you will certainly discover many company names that are already familiar.

Major insurers such as Aetna, Cigna and Humana offer a variety of general health care insurance policies as well as dental insurance coverage.


The Aetna Insurance Company provides numerous plans for individuals, businesses and families. In addition to their comprehensive health care policies Aetna also offers the Aetna Dental Access plan.

This program is Aetna's basic offer in the dental coverage market. The Aetna Dental Access plan automatically saves you amounts ranging from 15%-50% on root canals, X-rays, cleanings, crowns and even orthodontic needs. One annual fee guarantees you these discounted rates at more than 60,000 dental care providers across the nation.

With the Vital Savings plan you can also receive impressive discounts for a variety of health insurance needs including dental care, hearing care, prescription medications and vision care. This plan is not an insurance policy but it will afford you some tremendous ‘up-front' savings for these listed, health care services.


There are many different dental health insurance options when you choose a Cigna insurance policy. In addition to these health care and dental plans Cigna offers customers a variety of options. You also are given flexibility by being allowed to change your options according to your personal circumstances and needs with the Cigna Flex Advantage program.

Flex Advantage gives Cigna policy holders the option of switching between a DHMO and DPPO/Dental Indemnity plan each month. There is no need to wait until the once or twice a year open enrollment period is offered.

With Cigna insurance and dental health care plans you have a choice of HMO, DHMO, DPPO, PPO and Dental Indemnity options to consider.  There are even pre-packaged dental health insurance plans tailored for single individuals, children, families and expats.

The Cigna Flexible Spending Account is another of these plans that provides the opportunity for customers to be in charge of their health care programs. With these savings accounts you can have funds available for out of pocket expenses or other pertinent health related needs. There are 2 different accounts from which to choose; one for dependent day care and one for dental and health care needs.

You are allowed to save money in a tax deferred account,   and then direct it toward those necessary out of pocket and other medical expenses as circumstances dictate. You do not have to be enrolled directly in a CIGNA plan in order to take advantage of this type of reimbursement program.


Humana Insurance is recognized as one of the most reputable and well respected insurance companies based in the United States. The company features Humana Dental Health Insurance plans that are tailored to the individual needs of the consumer.

This makes it very easy to create a dental health insurance coverage program that is most suited to each policyholder instead of trying to make a "one size fits all" dental plan. Today HumanaOne is a dominant force when it comes to individual dental coverage.

With HumanaOne dental plans individuals and families can choose a policy that conforms to their specific dental needs. Most preventive care costs are covered 100% by HumanaOne Dental  PPO policies and other dentistry expenses may be covered in part, or up to 100%, depending on the dental health insurance plan that has been chosen.
